Geocaching : Terra Aventura - The “essac” fisheries

Terra Aventura is a treasure hunt inspired by geocaching.
To play, you must download the application on your smartphone (androïd or apple) or bring you a GPS, thinking to print beforehand the list of clues on the website. Then you will leave a starting point referenced by GPS coordinates. Throughout the way, characters named "Poï'z" will accompany you in search of clues. These clues will allow you to complete the GPS coordinates of the location of the cache.

On the territory, you can enjoy a 5 km walk in village of St-Simeux on the banks of the river Charente.
The poï'z "Zéidon" will guide you along the way and once the cache found, you will leave with a surprise!

Good luck !!

Saint-Médard Church of Mainfonds

In contrast to the "classic" churches of Charente, the church of Saint-Médard de Mainfonds has a Greek cross plan. This monument was built in the 12th century.
In the centre of the church, a dome can be seen. The apse, a little further on, forms a half-dome. It is decorated with arcatures and lit by three windows. Above it stands a bell tower, which probably dates from the construction of the church.
