Opening hours



Perched on its rock 312 meters high, it dominates the splendid panorama of the Loire Valley.

From the Esplanade of Porte César, you can see a wonderful landscape painting of the faraway mountains of the Morvan presented in delicate pastel tones.

Surrounding Sancerre and lovingly maintained by winemakers proud of their ancestral traditions, the vineyards producing Sancerre wines seem ready to lay siege to the town!

"Le Fil d'Ariane" (self guided walking tour) leads you through the old winemaking and bread making quarters of town as well as by XVth century buildings and numerous art galleries. A "must see" when evening comes and the town's beautiful monuments are illuminated !

The Fief's Tower, a remnant of the feudal castle built by the earls of Sancerre, offers a magnificient 360 degrees bird's-eye view of the city and surrounding countryside.

Sancerre's wines and the Crottin de Chavignol - goat cheese of the village of the same name - belong to the French family of local products and carry the AOP ("Appellation d'Origine Protégée").

Add to these attractions the many opportunities for recreational and cultural activities in Sancerre (Jazz festival, musiques aux Caves...).
