Le Tour de la Louvière par la voie royale n°24 – 10km – 3h40

6343773-diaporama ©


After you are parked near the ruins of the St Magdeleine chapel and the cemetery of the village, head west to the Lure mountain. Continue on a beautiful track to reach the "royal road" 20 minutes later. This historical open-air treasure was one of the major renovation projects on the lines of communication, wanted in the 17th century by Louis XIV.
Turn right and continue for about 10 minutes, then turn left into a track that joins the D101. During your descent, don't forget to look around because halfway, the hermit's hole and its remains of the tenth century are still visible and dominate the St Donat chapel. Go down this departmental road and then catch up, at the foot of the Louvière, the departure of the royal way. A little higher, you will join the track taken at the beginning of the circuit.
