Montargis features narrow streets with centuries-old half-timbered houses and flower-filled balconies. Gaze in awe at the Église Sainte-Marie-Madeleine de Montargis, a remarkable Gothic church with stunning stained glass. Enjoy moments of relaxation in cozy cafés with exquisite French coffee.
Known as “The Venice of the Gâtinais,” Montargis is renowned for its scenic canals.
