  • Castles and manors, churches and chapels
  • touristic areas or hiking ways
  • gastronomy

In Châtellerault

  • Saint Jacques church and polychromatic statue of the saint
  • architectural route with Sully museum and Descartes house
  • the aquatic center with its toboggan, its large pool and its waves pool
  • two cinema theaters: Le Loft 3 minutes away from la Dulcinière and les 400 coups
