Morestel has been the canton's capital since the Revolution. In this region bathed in a special light that appealed to the illustrious François Auguste Ravier and other great artists, plunge yourself into this scenic world of colour.
This trail takes you through the town of Morestel, but also the villages of Saint-Victor-de-Morestel, Creys-Mépieu and Brangues. The very special light that floods our picturesque landscape has inspired the likes of Jean-Baptiste Camille Corot, François Auguste Ravier, Charles François Daubigny, Jacques Barthélémy, Charles Rouvière, Claude Marie Reignier, Philippe Tassier, Abel Gay, Joseph Romagnol and Marion Cartier Claude.
These were the favourite spots of around a hundred artists who explored the region from the mid-19th century to the start of the 20th. Enter their world by following the thematic trails dotted with explanatory panels.
