A history...

 

Luynes has an extremely rich archaeological and historical heritage. In Gallo-Roman times, was a bustling city, the most remarkable feature of which is undoubtedly the aqueduct. This structure, the largest of its kind still standing in the west of France has undergone several restorations since antiquity, suggesting that it was in service for millennia. The visible remains are based on an older monument the nature of which is little understood

The château de Luynes still belongs to the family of the Dukes of Luynes. Along with the Saint-Venant Priory, which dates back to the fifth century, it majestically overlooks the Loire.

The town has preserved other riches besides. The church of Notre-Dame, the church of St. Genevieve, a fifteenth century mansion, the market building, the old hospital, and a farm built into the caves
