Bourges Marshlands

Only ten minutes from the Old Town, the marshlands offer a breath of fresh air and a great place to stroll.

The flourishing truck-gardening industry that existed here in the 19th century has now declined, but the labyrinth of 1500 gardens and meandering streams continues to surprise visitors with its quaint and quiet charm.

The annual “Feast of Saint Fiacre” (patron saint of gardeners) held here in September is an especially colorful event.
