Pérouges, too often appropriated by its Lyon neighbors, is a medieval city opening on the dombiste plateau. The course of this loop also gives an unknown insight into the Coast.Perchée on the edge of the plateau of Dombes, the city of Pérouges, remarkably preserved, nearly disappeared however when in 1909 a municipal bylaw forced to "repair or demolish all threatening house ruin ". Thanks to the passion of a Perugian, Anthelme Thibaut and in support of Edouard Herriot, the Old Perouges Defense and Conservation Committee was created to save the city. Today, strolling on its cobblestones steeped in history, you will be amazed to discover its houses of the 15th century, its fortified church, the Place du Tilleul former Place de la Halle, its museum flanked by its hortulus... Less known that their dazzling neighbor, the villages of Beynost, Miribel, Balan and especially Montluel also participated in the history of this medieval Dombes.
