- THE BRIARE CANAL BRIDGE
Built between 1890 and 1896 by Eiffel, it was the longest metal canal bridge in Europe until 2003, linking the Canal Latéral à la Loire to the Canal de Briare. To make the most of the surrounding countryside, you can hire a boat to cross the bridge or take a stroll along the banks.
- CASTLE OF SULLY-SUR-LOIRE
The CHÂTEAU DE SULLY-SUR-LOIRE is located in the Loiret department on the left bank of the Loire, and is the gateway to the Valley of the Kings. This medieval fortress, built in the 14th century, is surrounded by a moat and a sumptuous garden. The interior of the Château is made up of 14 rooms that retrace the life of the Duke of Sully.
- THE CHURCH OF SAINT ETIENNE
The Church of Saint-Etienne de Briare, built in the Romanesque-Byzantine style between 1890 and 1895, is remarkable for its Briare enamel decorations, some of which are rather secular in inspiration (signs of the zodiac). The building was financed by the industrialist Jean-Félix Bapterosses, owner of the Briare enamel factory. The church was listed as a historic monument by decree on 14 May 1987.
- CHÂTEAU TROUSSE-BARRIERE
The Château was built between 1885 and 1890 by the Yver-Bapterosses family118 and is now a venue for temporary exhibitions.

- THE LOIRE BY BIKE
Set off from Briare, a major centre for river tourism, famous for its canal bridge, towards Sully-sur-Loire and its unique medieval castle, where you will cycle through the countryside, accompanied by the wild Loire and its hillsides. Discover the village of St Brisson-sur-Loire, where the ancient feudal castle dominates the Loire Valley, and from the top of its promontory you can see Anne de Beaujeu's castle in Gien. This is the perfect opportunity to stop off in the town of earthenware. Then it's time to enjoy the Loire, before leaving it again to find your way back to it and follow it as far as Sully-sur-Loire.
