Office de Tourisme11 boulevard Bancel26000 Valence

This tour is brought to you by the Valence Tourist Office. A brochure is available on our premises! All along the route along these waterways, you'll be able to observe a whole world of exceptional animals and plants, right in the heart of the city.

This walk will take you through the Chateauvert district, where you can admire springs from the Vercors, including the Malcontents fountain, as well as shared gardens and protected wetlands.
You'll enjoy the freshness of this bucolic stroll, and see a wealth of fauna (frogs, dragonflies, trout) and flora (calltriches, potamots, rubanier): a veritable corridor for biodiversity.
