The small town of Argenton-sur-Creuse, known as the Venice of Berry, is very picturesque with typical old houses with galleries and balustrades reflected in the water of the Creuse river. The best places to admire this beautiful scene are the old bridge over the river or the terrace of Bonne-Dame chapel perched on the hillside above, where the view over the rooftops and valley is stunning. Don't miss visiting the town itself for its pretty streets and lanes like Rue Raspail, Saint-Sauveur church flanked by a Neo-Gothic bell tower porch and the museum of shirt-making and male elegance (Musée de la Chemiserie et de l'Elégance Masculine).

Argenton-sur-Creuse, tourist center of the Val de Creuse, took over from the Gallo-Roman Argentomagus in Saint-Marcel.

Ancient fortified place, it has evolved over the ages to become a dynamic and friendly small town, with modern neighborhoods harmoniously with the authenticity of the old quarters of the Middle Ages.

One can still admire some beautiful medieval houses, old houses with galleries and balustrades structurally copper roof and slate gray.

This picturesque village Berry, nicknamed "the Venice of the Berry," has inspired many poets and writers.
