Welcome to one of the most surprising and picturesque villages in Loir-et-Cher! Overlooking the Loir valley, Trôo is known for its cave dwellings, houses dug into the cliff whose origins date back to medieval times. You can discover this curiosity in more detail on a guided tour that takes place on the first Sunday of each month between May and September. The village's charm lies in its very distinctive layout: terraces on three levels, caves, paths and steps. The many flights of steps make it easy to go from one level to another.
Don't miss two other must-see sites in Trôo: the "talking well" 45 metres deep, and the petrifying cave whose name comes from the limestone water flows that crystallise objects. Continue to wander through the narrow streets, discover the many artists' studios and climb up to La Butte, an artificial hill, for an exceptional view of the surrounding countryside. Continue your stroll and admire the ancient gates and ramparts, vestiges of a distant time, the Collegiate Church of St. Martin, the Rock of St. Gabriel and the Lazaret of St. Catherine, a former leper hospital from the 12th century.
