Decize tourist information

where to go - what to see - what to do

Decize is a charming little town that sits on a rocky island in the middle of the river Loire.  It is surrounded by some fantastic countryside that is home to the famous Charolais cattle that produce France's finest beef.

There are some architectural gems in Decize including Le Couvent des Minimes which houses a marvellous Roman chapel and Eglise Saint-Are with a choir which dates back to the 11th century.    

Whilst sojourning in Decize, racing car fanatics may also want to make a detour to Magny-Cours, home to the Formula 1 racetrack with karting opportunities.
