18th Century Map of Montrichard on the Cher River, Touraine Region, France


Below is a map of Montrichard on the Cher River and its surrounding communities in the Touraine, c1750-80.   They come from the wonderful online collection of maps, images and documents at the French Ministry of Culture’s web site.

I think Montrichard is a great little market town ~ in the heart of the wine growing area it’s got a real buzz about it as well as providing the best almond croissants in the Touraine. Of all the major rivers in the Region the majestic Cher with its wide flood plain is definitely my favourite. For a potted history of the town just click here. Enjoy the maps:
