Evade to the heart of the Loudunaise countryside

L'Odyssée Blanche Loudunaise

In Loudunais, more than 500 springs are listed. These springs have a long history. The Gauls used to hold processions here, invoking the pagan gods: Belenos, Apollo, the Martes, Jupiters, Taranis or even Lug, Mercury, to revive the miracle of the appearance of water.

Did you know?One of these major conjunctions was the night of St. John, during which villagers paid tribute to the regenerative waters by dancing around bonfires. In 2010, the Communauté de Communes du Pays Loudunais launched the “L’Odyssée Blanche” operation, which consists of rehabilitating certain springs in the public domain.


A rally to discover the town of Loudun, its history and illustrious characters

Get your teams together and set off on a walking tour of the town. During this 1h30 walk, you’ll be guided by the ghost of Urbain Grandier. But to be on the safe side, a map will be provided to help you follow an itinerary marked out with questions and riddles to solve. You’ll need a good sense of observation and a bit of logic, and at the end of the walk, you’ll be rewarded with a surprise.

This rally is free of charge, and you can follow it thanks to a booklet handed out at the start at the Pays Loudunais Tourist Office.
