18th Century Map of the small, but perfectly formed town of Cussay in the Touraine Region, France


Below are maps of the small town of Cussay and surrounding communities in the South Touraine, c1750-80.   They come from the spiffing online collection of maps, images and documents at the French Ministry of Culture’s web site.

Cussay is an occasional destination for Sandra and I when we take a summer’s evening bike ride (or whatever is the bike equivalent for a stroll). Cussay’s Pont Neuf Restaurant Bar is often our half way drinking hole. It’s got a great atmosphere in the early evening and well worth a visit.
