Parcours-découverte Tourtenay, un village résistant (1940-1944)

11 August
  • Parcours-découverte Tourtenay 2-min

Visit the exhibition "Maréchal, ôte toi de là!" presented by the Centre Régional Résistance & Liberté, then set off to discover Tourtenay, a troglodytic village with an exceptional past!
This isolated village, shaped by the exploitation of its natural underground resources, boasts a unique landscape: vineyards, underground quarries and a remarkable built heritage. The Resistance seized on these assets. On two rare occasions, Tourtenay was chosen to organize clandestine parachute drops.
Follow the guide in the footsteps of the "army of shadows" and discover the mysteries of these secret missions on a 1km walk.
