  • Guidebook with maps/step-by-step : From the Tourist Office, pass in front of the church, then cross the bridge over the Foron and walk alongside the river along the Quai du Bras de Fer, until you reach the Rue de l’Usine. Carry on along the Chemin des Gorges du Foron up to an isolated house (private walkway). There is a magnificent view of the river from here.
    Turn back and when you reach 117 Rue de l’Usine, go down the footpath that runs alongside the river until you get to the Rue de Croyère. Turn left and then at a small junction, pass between two stone walls and you’ll arrive in the grounds of the ancient castle. Go down to the Place du Château and cross the old bridge. In front of the fountain, go left along Rue Saint Anne, then Rue des Traboules, go down the Montée du Char to the Rue des Arcades, and then back to the Tourist Office car park.
