Take a walk around the city of Thonon with your Smartphone and follow three routes to discover its historic, cultural and religious heritage.
The first walk, “History and Heritage” takes you to the historic centre, going from Sonnaz Castle past Bellegarde Castle, the Savoy Leman hotel school, the Visitation cultural centre and the Maurice Novarina theatre.
The city of Thonon les Bains is also known for its many castles and most of them have left a trace today; the lake walk “From Castle to Castle” will take you from Sonnaz Castle to Rives Castle, recalling the memory of La Fléchère Castle and ending with the jewel of Thonon’s heritage: Ripaille Castle.
The third walk is designed for persons with a visual handicap and offers an audio description, starting at the Tourist Office and going to the port on the funicular to access the port of Rives.
Religious, historical, gastronomic or architectural, the city of Thonon les Bains is full of hidden treasures. These walks reveal the evolution of Thonon into a world-renowned lakeside town and thermal spa.
Django Reinhardt, Saint François de Sales, Jean Moulin, Henry Bordeaux: many famous men have stayed in this city and some buildings show evidence of the time they spent here.
With these tools for discovery, let the commentary be your guide in your walk through the streets of Thonon.
