The Tours Saint Jacques hike can be done by following different paths, but we have chosen the longest because it has a paved way and will make you see many different landscapes : the gorge of Banges, the village, a beech forest and as well as a glimpse of the local history.

To park, there are several parking lots : the cyclamen and the cemetery parking lots, the latter being the largest. This trail begins at the cyclamen parking lot.

This trail has one drawback : it is more difficult than the others, at least during its first part.

If you have young children, it would be better to follow the shortest route (look at the signs).

Bring a picnic and a walking stick (if you're used to), which will help you reach the towers.

About facilities : there are public lavatories behind the city hall.
Have a nice stroll and take your time, enjoying the rich and beautiful nature around you.


Free access.
