Provins The Essential
Recommended
Atmosphere, atmosphere - yes, this town that was governed for a long time by Alain Peyrefitte has real atmosphere, with the shape of the Tour de César and the Dome of Saint-Quiriace. Then there are the ramparts that take us back to the Middle Ages. The roses, the counts of Champagne, the medieval fairs, all add to the atmosphere of the upper city, while the lower city with all its shops spreads out at the foot of the promontory, along the Voulzie and the Durtreint,.
