Brindas - Tourism, holidays & weekends guide in the Rhône

Brindas has a rich historical heritage linked to its isolation and its age-old ties with the character of Guignol. It can be noted the historical center, derived from the original castle, and many hamlets rich in natural character and diversity. Isolated between the valleys of the Yzeron and Garon, Brindas has varied landscapes, sometimes surprising, pro-family walks and discoveries. The name of Brindas (Briand before the revolution) is of Celtic origin, as Yzeron and Garon. The earliest known reference dates back to around the year one thousand (cartulary of Savigny).
