"Walk through town" Moret-sur-Loing Things to Do Tip by Dabs
Moret-sur-Loing Things to Do: 8 reviews and 26 photos
The draw of Moret-sur-Loing isn't any particular sight or museum, it's the lovely setting alongside the Loing River. Unless you already have a guide to the town, stop by the tourism office at the entrance to the old part of the town near the Porte de Samois and they can give you a map of the sights throughout town. Moret-sur-Loing isn't very big, it takes no more than 10 minutes to walk between the two 12th century gates at either end, the Porte de Samois and Porte de Bourgogne. Keep walking through the Porte de Bourgogne and on either side of the Loing you can see the two old mills. Somehow we missed the Castle Keep (it was marked on our map as donjon which I now know is the French word for keep), built in 1128, on rue du Donjon where Henri IV kept his mistress and Nicolas Fouquet was imprisoned after Louis XIV had him arrested at Vaux le Vicomte. On the same street at 9 rue du Donjon is the house that impressionist painter Alfred Sisley lived in until he died.
