Niort
The Essential
Interesting
Richard the Lionheart's double keep watches over Niort, which is known as the "angelic" city after the umbelliferous plant angelica which grows here. A "green way" runs along the banks of the Sèvre Niortaise, while the new "chemin communal du 3e millénaire" offers a pleasant 50km circuit for walkers and cyclists around the city outskirts. Niort, a regional centre for traditional crafts, is a magnet for artists and artisans, and is also home to some of the largest insurance companies in France.
