The medieval town of Trévoux

Former capital of a tiny principality

At Trévoux, make the most of the banks of the Saône, as they’ve been developed and landscaped to provide a peaceful place to relax. Explore the medieval old town and its streets lined with craft and art galleries, then head off to encounter knights in the fortified castle.

Discover the unusual past of this former capital of a principality via its monuments and museums. Admire the 17th-century decorations in the courtroom of the former Parlement de Dombes. Learn about the town’s remarkable history at the Carré Patrimoines and at the museum, Trévoux et ses Trésors. Relax at the Espace de baignade Les Cascades (with landscaped outdoor swimming pools), or explore the Médiathèque or then go to the cinema if culture is your thing. Do try one of the town’s many restaurants. Also make the most of the shops and services available. Finally, why not recharge your batteries here, choosing from the wide range of accommodation on offer.
