The recipe for the legendary galette au sucre (sugar flat cake) has been stolen. Find the ingredients and save the secret!  This treasure hunt for families, including mini-games and puzzles, is suitable for all ages.  perouges-bugey-tourisme.com 


The ‘Sentier de la Croix Ramboz’  is a walking path that can be completed in about two hours.  The highlight? A superb view of the medieval town.
