With the stream, in Montargis

Canal Montargis canals

Everywhere in Montargis city, we have canals. And each one tells his own story...

For instance, the "Tanbark's mill bridge" (pont du Moulin à Tan) was named after Montargis tanners who used to exploit a mill not far from here.

And the "Fishery bridge" (pont de la Pêcherie) where fishermen used to live...

Tanning was a very important industry in Montargis: well, this activity needed lot of water... and the city had water everywhere!

Indeed, Montargis is located at the confluence of rivers Loing, Puiseaux and Vernisson...

Well, I hope you'll fall in love with this astonishing city!
