La Tour Matagrin


It is the highest point in the monts du Lyonnais (1,004 m above sea level). A 360° viewpoint at the top of the tower. Direct pedestrian access from the picnic area. Shop selling local products, refreshment bar and point of information during the summer period.


Built in 1876, the tower was used as a hunting lodge and then became a bar where people could dance. After the Liberation, the Air Force removed its roof. In the fifties, a Hertzian tower was built nearby. Today, thanks to renovation works, the tower enjoys its roof again
