Guided tour of the old town of Culoz and the castle of Montveran

Bugey Sud Grand Colombier Tourist Office is offering a tour of the old town of Culoz and the Château de Montveran.

Dominated by the Grand Colombier massif and bordered by the Rhône, the town of Culoz prospered from the Middle Ages onwards thanks to the vineyards and activities established around its river, the Jourdan. This industrial town, home to the CIAT company, also owes its fame to many famous people: the Serpollet brothers, Henry Dunant, Dr Poncet and the American writer Gertrude Stein.
The visit ends with the discovery of Montveran Castle, which has the distinction of belonging to the same family since the 14th century.
