Grand Morin Valley
Grand Morin Valley: the valley of painters
Grand Morin Valley, also known as the valley of painters, was a source of great inspiration for many XIX century artists. Everyone is familiar with Toulouse-Lautrec, Corot and Van Gogh, but few are aware that the gentle slopes of this hilly valley inspired some of their work. A 12km walking tour between Crécy-la-Chapelle and Saint-Germain-sur-Marin allows you to explore these major painters and their works. Educational panels punctuate this gentle stroll so you can compare the masters’ canvases with the natural sites.
