Ethni'Cite, Saint-Remy-sur-Creuse

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.

  • Several caves-caves to visit, including some on the theme of the weaving of hemp. Steeped in history. A beautiful setting!

  • The site has been privatized for Halloween. What a pleasure to rediscover the site in this context. Potion of witch, ghosts of all kinds and monsters were at the rendezvous!
