Saint-Hilaire bridge

Wet zone

Here you are in a mangrove of mangrove trees where live a surprising fauna and flora, including the famous fiddler crabs. The walker finds himself plunged with wonder in fabulous landscapes.

Fauna and flora : M2.Creative has concocted for you a magical stroll, with sound ambiences conducive to immersion. Animals escape from a medieval bestiary to find themselves on the various bridges and wash houses scattered along the Eure. The banks of the river, the bridges, the laundries and the collegiate church of Saint-André change in appearance and become the home of animals and trees from elsewhere, even from another time.

A little history

The Saint-Hilaire bridge

The 12th century Saint-Hilaire bridge linked the Morard gate to the Saint-Hilaire church, which has now disappeared. This church was next to the Saint-Pierre church.

Travelers arriving from the south or from Orléans would enter the city through this access. It is one of the only bridges that survived the bombings of the Second World War.
