La Daguenière - Angers station Unique Anjou

Logo Loire à Vélo

Craters, pitheads, hillocks, and emerald lakes! No, you’re not on the moon, but at the heart of Anjou. 600 years of slate mining have left their mark on the land. This unique environment illustrates the brutality of an industrial, lunar-like landscape, reclaimed by natural forces. As you travel through this land of former slate quarries, you’ll discover highly-coloured flora. Another distinctive feature of this route: a chain ferry making its way across the Authion, a tributary of the Loire.

Historic slate-lining site – Musée de l’Ardoise

The Ardoisières de Trélazé will take you inside the heart of a working mine - something that is indissociable from the history of the Angevin basin. Its mining landscapes, now converted into wild, natural spaces, promise you a unique experience. Don't hesitate to satisfy your curiosity by making a slight detour via the Musée de l’Ardoise.

Angers, city of Art and History

Awarded the Ville d'Art and d’Histoirelabel, Angers, capital city of Anjou, will amaze you with the wealth of a thousand and one heritage treasures. Its castle, which belonged to ‘Good King René ‘, is visited primarily for its magisterial Tapestry of the Apocalypse and its unobstructed view over Angers from the height (30 metres) of its 17 towers. And don’t miss out on exploring the city between the castle and the Saint-Maurice Cathedral.
