Ethni'Cite, Saint-Remy-sur-Creuse

4.2
#11 of 14 in Historic Sites in Vienne
Historic Site Tourist Spot
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.

  • Although small in size, this site is very interesting about the history and life of the chanviers. Nice, this hostess is inexhaustible on the flora of the garden as well as butterflies. After the visit, feel free to enjoy a cup of tea on the terrace of the room 6. With the heat there was last Saturday, we spent 2 hours in the fridge! I recommend, although the path (walk) is quite steep and long.
