AttractionsChatillon d'Azergues

Located about 45 minutes north of Lyon is the medieval village of Chatillon d'Azergues. Chatillon d'Azergues dates back to the 10th century when it was built on the border of three provinces. Chatillon means little fortress in French, Azergues is a small river a few miles away from the village. The village is overlooked by its castle and Romanesque chapel Notre-Dame de Bon Secours. The castle is a private residence and closed to the public.

Built in the 11th century the Notre-Dame-de-Bon-Secours chapel is classified an historical monument. Of note, the chapel’s bell tower is built in the Cluny style. The chapel was left to ruin and then restored in 1849. The castle fortress is the last remaining one of its kind in the Rhône department.

Throughout the village are information markers in both French and English. The information markers if followed will take you on a self-guided tour.

Chatillon d'Azergues makes for a nice stop either before or after a visit to the Beaujolais. It can easily be visited in an hour or so.

Chatillon d'Azergues can be reached off the A6 Autoroute exit 33 – Limonest. Then take the N6 National Road direction Villefranche sur Saône to the D485 direction Lozanne. Once in the village Chatillon d'Azergues you can park near the tourist office.
