Description

The town of Meximieux has a pleasant and healthy position, at a few kilometers of the river of Ain. It was located primarily on the Coastal one, but after the construction of the Royal Road, it is extended towards the Plain.

It is sprinkled in the west by the brook Longevent, which runs then on the commune of Pérouges where it is lost, and in the east by Surin, known as sometimes Bovagne. It moves in the river of Ain on 200 m.

Walk around the castle and the Aubépin

walk-around-the-castle-and-the-aubepin

Easy walk and sympathetic nerve, allowing at the same time a discovery of the old inheritance of Meximieux (the church of XV century, a laundrette of XIX built under a dwelling and the former priory of XV century transformed into housing) as one of new spaces of serenity with its pond of fishing and leisures, within a green and raised framework.

Necessary time: 30minutes
