Tours through the neighbourhoods - Prébendes


The Tours Val de Loire Tourist Office and the city of Tours are offering a themed tour of the Prébendes district, led by a guide and lecturer.

In the 18th century, the construction of the Route d'Espagne changed the face of the city. Tours then developed along this new north-south axis. The building of the stone bridge (now the Wilson Bridge) opened up perspectives to the north of the Loire. And the Avenue de la Tranchée became an essential passage for Tourangeaux and travellers. The construction of the first tramway line also brought its share of changes.

Reservations must be made in advance at the Tourist Office or online. No sales on site.
