The Typical City of Romorantin-Lanthenay


Welcome to the Capital of the Sologne for relaxing holidays

It’s by following a salamander that you’ll get to Romorantin-Lanthenay, the capital of the Sologne. Situated in the Loire Valley, this township of around 18,000 inhabitants was established on May 28, 1961 through the consolidation of the cities of Romorantin and Lanthenay.

History has left an indelible mark on the place, as you’ll see as you enjoy a leisurely stroll in the magnificent setting along the banks of Sauldre river near the château and the Parc de Beauvais. Like at the Pyramide de l’Espace Francis 1, you might luck out and come across an exhibition, a concert or special event as you take your walk. You will also enjoy the Matra Museum, The ‘Musée de Sologne’ or a discovery of the nature and the wild around the city with a guide of Sologne Nature Environnement

Leonardo da Vinci also let his mark in this city Francis 1 wanted to build to become the Capital of France. A project finally abandonned due to the old age of the Italian genius.
