Why we love
This unmarked circuit is an invitation to stroll along the Touvre and in the old suburbs of Ruelle. Desks installed on the course will tell you about the past and the present of the city.
The old post
Take Rue Camille Pelletan, and immediately follow Rue de la Vergnade on the right.
The Relette Footbridge
Do not hesitate to go back and forth in the dead ends Rue du Port, Rue de l'Abreuvoir, all giving access to La Touvre – see on the desk the history of the old mill of the village.
Return and continue to the Saint-Médard church - panel on the wall.
Go along the media library then the nursing home, and continue through the playgrounds.
The Dog Tray

Logis de Fissac
Continue to the right to walk along the park through which the Touvre flows, which once turned the wheel of the Fissac mill.
Turn right on Rue du Pont-Neuf then at the crossroads on the left Rue Charles Moraud – see on the left the trolley that served the foundry and further on the wash house at the bottom of the car park.
