The friends from St-Jean-St-Maurice-sur-Loire are pleased to welcome you on their website.
The association wishes to share with you the cultural treasures of its village through its history and its monuments.
This site is an invitation to discover the village, its landscapes and its art of living, during a guided tour with friends.
A village with character
St-Jean-St-Maurice-sur-Loire is located in the north of the department of the Loire to 15 km of Roanne. It is composed historically of two boroughs, one created around a former Benedictine priory, the other at the foot of its castle overlooking the Loire. The site classified “village of character” offers remarkable views of the river and the surrounding countryside: the imposing silhouette of the former dungeon and the walls of the old castle have always been an inspiration for painters or ceramists.
The village located in the area of Appellation d’Origine Contrôlée (AOC) “Côte Roannaise” also has some good tables and guest rooms for hosting pilgrims from St Jacques, or for tourists staying longer. Artisans of talent open their workshop to make you appreciate their know-how.
The association is currently working on a visit for children, scheduled for next March on the theme of the Middle Ages.
