Troyes Architecture in Troyes

troyes

The old quarter with its well-preserved 16th century houses and pedestrian streets is quite charming.

What's there to see?
Troyes is a great place for a ramble. Why not get some fresh air with a walk around the Lac d'Orient or the Lac du Der - the largest artificial lake in Europe? Alternatively, you could take a stroll through the town to see the Gothic cathedral, half-timbered medieval houses and great museums. If you like shopping, don’t miss the discount designer outlet stores.

Is there a local speciality?
Try a bit of Andouillette.

Any good activities around?
When you’ve explored the narrow paved streets and half timbered houses of the town, pay a visit to Forest d'Orient. It’s a nature lover’s paradise.

When's market day?
Every first Wednesday month of the month is the gastronomic market called ‘Les Matinées Gourmandes'. There are also other markets every week.

Interesting town fact
Troyes was founded by the Romans in the first century AD. The town remained relatively small until the early Middle Ages when the Counts of Champagne gave their prosperous capital a series of fortifications. These were all demolished in the 19th century and replaced by the present boulevards which are designed to resemble champagne corks.
