The Madeleine Tower and its ramparts

The Madeleine Tower is one of the towers of the rampart that Charles VI authorized to the bourgeois of Château-Landon.In spite of the looting, the fire and the passage of time, this one still shows appreciable vestiges; it serves in various places of support to constructions of a more recent past under which it disappears. It encloses the medieval administrative village, open, on the outside by four passages overlooking the 4 cardinal points. Only two remain: the North and the South. A round road lined it, quite rare, by a second underpass that went around the city. Towers regularly reinforced the wall as the best preserved Madeleine tower today. With a height of 9 metres and a diameter of 6.50 metres, this massive tower leaning against the ramparts communicates by its upper part with the circular path, visible on about 50 metres towards the East. With its 3 metres thick base, it is built of stone block and flint embedded in the mortar, pierced by 3 loopholes at half height. In 1926, the Madeleine Tower was listed as a Historic Monument.

The Cirkwi brief

Explore the Fox Trail in Château-Landon

Embark on a voyage of discovery through Château-Landon’s idyllic hamlets nestled on either side of the Fusain valley. Known affectionately as the Circuit du Renard, or Fox Trail, this route beckons with the promise of not just any encounter, but that of potentially spotting the elusive fox amidst breathtaking landscapes. Winding through historic sites and along ancient ramparts with stunning valley overlooks, this journey curated by the Office de tourisme de Château-Landon is more than a mere walk; it's an enchanting adventure into the heart of French countryside charm.

Brief Technical Overview of the Route

This meticulously planned route spans approximately 12.6 km, making it a manageable yet fulfilling outing for most.

Indeed, the Circuit du Renard provides an exemplary showcase of physical engagement and scenic allure.

Seasonal Tips and Safety Advice

Regardless of the season, the Circuit du Renard delivers unique charms and challenges. In spring and summer, the lush foliage and blooming fields provide a vivid backdrop, though it’s wise to pack sunscreen and ample water. Autumn transforms the landscape with a palette of warm colors, perfect for photographers, yet paths may become slippery with fallen leaves. Winter, with its stark beauty, demands caution for potential icy trails and requires warm, layered clothing. At all times, sturdy footwear is a must, as is keeping to marked paths to preserve both your safety and the integrity of the natural surroundings.
