Step 1

In Châtillon-sur-Indre, the Tour de César, the most imposing vestige of the fortified castle built by the King of England, Henry II Plantagenêt around 1160, stands out in the landscape and offers a bird's eye view of the medieval fortified town. You will dominate the Romanesque collegiate church of Saint-Austrégisile, famous for the richness of its sculpted decoration, as well as the royal residence, included on Stéphane Bern's list of monuments in danger.

Step 2

Going towards Le Tranger, the Priory of Saint-Martin-de-Vertou is an essential monument. Between Clion and Le Tranger, the Château de l'Isle-Savary is undoubtedly one of the best witnesses to the advent of the Renaissance in Berry. In Clion, the Manor of Marteau is worth a detour. On a rocky outcrop, Palluau is distinguished by its superb castle. Continuing your journey towards Buzançais you will not miss to visit the abbey of Saint-Genou.

Step 4

Once observed from above the valley of the Indre you will be able to rest and let yourself slide in the direction of Buzançais. You will follow the Indre river as closely as possible, especially in the heart of the city. Buzançais offers you a rich heritage: the pavilion of the Dukes, the Saint-Lazare Chapel, the Sainte-Croix Priory and the Church of the Sacred Heart. On leaving Buzançais you will follow the river to Bonneau to reach the Chapelle-Orthemale. Then, a landscape of cereal cultivation will lead you to Villedieu-sur-Indre and, before the place called Chambon, you will pass in front of the Château de Chamousseau and its farm.
