Ethni'Cite, Saint-Remy-sur-Creuse

3.7
Nestling in the cliffs at Saint Rémy-sur-Creuse, Ethni'Cite was hollowed out in the 12th century. Richard the Lionheart chose the area to keep a watch over his enemies and he even constructed a watch tower on top of the cliffs. In the 17th century, the continuous supply of water and the fertile valley attracted a guild of hemp weavers, who lived there for the next two centuries. As of now the cliff face is largely deserted, but has become a major tourist attraction.

  • After reading the reviews about this place we decided to make a stop! We were disappointed by the size of the site and the price that it reveals high considering the size, time to visit. Information on hemp are a food of air to forget the lack of discovery! 6 spaces are open to the public! We recommend it for kids! Positive the view from the tour is beautiful, the garden is also a space to be discovered! So disappointed
