Discovery Tour Quiz in La Romieu
Discover Angeline's Cats

In the village of La Romieu you will be surprised to find many signs, statues and other pictures of cats. This has to do with the legend of Angeline and her cats. To learn more about La Romieu, we have prepared a discovery tour quiz through this little village in search of these cats. Following the trail of these cats is great fun because you will discover things which you normally won't notice just walking around. The discovery tour quiz is good for children and adults.
