Angles-sur-l'Anglin

Angles-sur-l’Anglin is on the borders of Berry and Touraine ; it gets its name from the Angles, the Saxon tribe that invaded England in the 5C, and from the river that separates the upper part of the village from the lower one. As for its reputation, that has been established for the past 150 years thanks to its "jours" – a wonderful form of hand-made drawn-thread embroidery. The village is also famous for its 15000 year old Magdalenian sculptures of the "Witches’ Rock"...
