Book your journey in TroyesFrance
Troyes, the capital of the textile.
Troyes is a small town located in the Northeastern part of France. It is a very old city whose first settlement probably dates back to the sixth century BC. Now Troyes counts around 61.000 inhabitants and is famous for its factory outlets.
In addition to being a paradise for bargain hunters, Troyes can boast about being a beautiful city with an important cultural heritage.
As a matter of fact, it is nicknamed the ten churches’ city. Among the numerous religious buildings, do not miss the St Pierre St Paul cathedral, built from the 13th to the 17th century, and the St Urbain basilica, masterpiece of gothic art. Stroll about the historic centre and admire the colourful 16th century half-timbered houses, as the baker’s one. Around 10 museums are waiting for you, so you may be spoiled for choice.
An important industrial heritage still remains and also deserves to be known.
