  • 7 Summer tour in Serrières

    Come to discover the village of Serrières, his history and its traditions were connected in the river the Rhône! Possibility of attending then the training of the jousters.

    Details

    Serrières always had a curious fate, that of the city crossroads …Placed on the edges of the Rhône, in the northern borders of the classic art Helvie; It trained, during the Gallic districts, a contact point between Allobroges (Dauphiné), Ségusiaves (Forez), and Vellaves (Velay). From the highest antiquity moreover, the man already stayed in our region, then which we had to discover, at the end of the last century, during excavations made in the North of Serrières, fragments of cut flint and a sharp edge of ax in serpentine. Serrières owed, then, during the conquest Roman, to be crossed throughout, by the Roman way, from Lugdunum ( Lyon) to Nemausus ( Nîmes) whose plan was resumed more or less by the National 86. Numerous tracks of civilization Roman are still visible in our part of the country and more particularly between Serrières and Limony, where were discovered in 1892 the vestiges of thermal baths dependent on the sea resort of Limony. And a registration found in the same place, dit de Brèze, gave even the name of one of the doctors of this station: AproniusEutropus of the famous school of Asclépiade. Thermal waters came from the hill of Fontailloux (Fontis locus). At present, only rest still the name of the hill of Fontailloux, but the fame of Limony as health resort went out for quite a long time … On the other hand, the researchers can find, by digging the ground in a depth from 3 to 5 meters, to the right of the road, in approximately 100 meters of the grade crossing of the railroad (on the location of a old playing field) the still existing rests of a magnificent Gallo-Roman villa in the multicolored mosaics of one very great beauty. Later, in the Middle Ages, Serrières always had to remain the "bridgehead" of Vivarais, as it had been her of Helvie. In 1308, a treaty between the Bishop of Fishponds(Pools) and King of France replaced definitively, within the French Nation, Vivarais which had belonged, in spite of its position on the right bank of the Rhône, nominally at least, in the Holy Roman Empire, during several centuries. Thus Serrières become again French while while remaining the fine point of this Vivarais which, to symbolize its passage of Earth of Empire on the ground of the Kingdom of France, sets the blazon " in the field sowed with flower-of-lys) ". And this province had to mark our city, of its Southern membership, because Serrières was then going to depend on Languedoc and on majority of Montpellier. When were created, after the French Revolution, departments, Vivarais became Ardèche with Deprived for administrative center. Serrières remained incorporated into this department, the historic reasons having been more determining, then, than the economic reasons. And maybe, thus, it is because of this special position between Lyon and in South of its location in the intersection of very diverse regions where mix Dauphiné, Languedoc and Forez of his "exhibition" in all the passages that our city kept a pleasant and welcoming aspect which she likes receiving and which often she holds her hosts!
