Visit Angoulême

Angoulême is located on a limestone plateau overlooking the Charente River. Thanks to its elevated position, the city has the nickname “balcony in the southwest” of France.

Its location has always made it very coveted, the Romans took it for granted and fortified the city against conquerors, and it has certainly had a turbulent past. The upper town of Angouleme is a great place to hike with plenty to see and do – even though it is hilly. It is quite different from the lower part and has more to offer tourists.

There are elegant squares, sounding fountains and magnificent buildings. Styles range from medieval to renaissance, and it has a rather Parisian look in some parts with a neo-classical style. It is not so surprising when Angoulême got a makeover in the 19th century from Paul Abadie, the French architect and restaurateur whose work included the Sacré-Coeur Basilica in Paris.

The view from the city wall over the surrounding countryside really brings home to you that this is very much a country town.

Comics are taken seriously in France, they are accepted as a respected art form. Every year, the Comic Museum of Angoulême holds a comic book festival that attracts more than 200,000 visitors. The city is also the street art capital of France, and you can hardly turn a corner without spotting a mural, speech-bubble-street name, or a statue honoring a cartoonist.

The Museum of Angoulême is a great place to discover the history of Charente. It looks quite small from the outside, but it has a surprisingly good collection. The area is very rich in fossils, so there is an excellent array of fossils and skeletons including a dinosaur. The Beaux Arts sections, paintings and objects are exhibited in rooms resembling 17th-century salons.
