Tours through the neighbourhoods - Saint Eloi - Bretonneau


Under the guidance of a guide, the Tours Loire Valley Tourist Office and the city of Tours offer you a tour of the Saint Eloi - Bretonneau district.

Under the Ancien Régime, the city of Tours developed with the construction of successive city walls. 
In the 19th century, with the annexation of Saint-Etienne-Extra, the city confirmed its expansion towards the south. The second half of the 19th century was marked by the multiplication of large urban construction sites that met a growing need for housing. Finally, the annexation of the communes of Saint-Symphorien and Sainte-Radegonde, in 1964, enabled the town to expand northwards.
