Our local canals are a rich heritage of architecture and history. Construction of the Briare canal beganin 1604 on the initiative of Henri IV and his minister Sully. They are now an integral part of the landscape and expanding touring opportunities by canal boat, offering a unique and privilegedvantage point over our region.
Our proximity to Briare facilitates easy exploration of the complex canal network, local shipping history, and the famous 660-metre Pont-Canal aqueduct across River Loire.
In Ouzouer sur Trézée itself you can stroll for miles along the serenely peaceful banks of the Briare canal.
