Running a program of outings and visits during each holiday period is one of the missions that the team of the Tourism House. From their offices which have a direct view of the cathedral, place Charles-de-Gaulle, the guides and travel advisors Pauline Louyot and Logan Mathiot detail the appointments planned for the next few days.
Rubbing shoulders with scary local legends. Fans of stories of witchcraft, miracles, beliefs… and pumpkins, this outing is for you. Pauline Louyot will visit the city by hanging up places and objects – such as the skulls exhibited in the cathedral – to legends that have been told since the dawn of time. Examples: the devil behind the creation of Mont Saint-Michel; Aprône, the sister of St-Evre, who fought the plague dragon armed with a simple distaff (a stick used to spin wool). “The goal is to tell anecdotes, not to scare”, nevertheless nuances the guide. Saturday, October 29 at 3 p.m. Duration: 1h to 1h30, from 4 years old. Price: €4 for over 12s.
Understand how the cathedral was built. Logan Mathiot will slip into the shoes of a builder of the Toul Cathedral to explain its construction secrets such as lifting stones, for example. On the forecourt – or in the cloister in case of bad weather – he will draw in chalk, with the tools then in force, these drafts to scale 1 which served as plans for the craftsmen of the time. The guide will also explain the omnipresence of the golden ratio to harmonize the proportions of the achievements. Wednesday, October 26 at 11 a.m. and Saturday, November 5 at 3 p.m. Duration: 1h to 1h15, from 6 years old. Price: €4 for over 12s.
To be explained the life of a forest. Logan Mathiot, Member Qualinat certified nature guides trained by the Regional Natural Park, will take a group of ten people on a “nature outing” in the Avrainville forest. The aim of this 2 to 3 km walk will be to understand how a forest works – self-management ensured by fungi – but also to explain the shape of the trees or why the leaves turn yellow. Wednesday, November 2 at 3 p.m. Duration: 1h30. Price: €6 for over 12s. Registration required.
Discover unknown objects from the museum… at random. A mummified Egyptian monkey’s foot, the Merovingian skeleton in a glass case or even the painting which – according to legend – would have cost the museum the most will be among the 40 to 50 little-known works of the museum that visitors will discover… if they draw lots during a visit placed under the sign of chance, then. A challenge for the guide and for the participants, the assurance of a visit that will go off the beaten track. Wednesday, November 2 at 11 a.m. Duration: 1h30, from 6 years old. Price: €4 for over 12s.
