The Quai Ligny promenade or promenade Jean Turc of Angers !

My travel curiosity took me to this nice City ,and it was great! I just visited Angers, a city in the Maine-et-Loiredept 49 of the Pays de la Loireregion. Let me tell you a bit about the Quai Ligny promenade or promenade Jean Turc, Of course, I have other posts on Angers on several posts ,see them for more,

The Quai Ligny promenade, renamed Jean Turc promenade in 2006, is a garden walkway, The Esplanade du Port-Ligny is a large and beautiful space in the city center where you can sit down to chat with friends and have a good time, especially when the weather is nice. Especially if my wants to contemplate the view offered by the Quai du Verdun which is just nearby, the fountain which is there, the castle, the Pont du Verdun and many other wonders to see. My boys by the fountain below pic.


Quai Ligny is one of the oldest settlement areas in Angers. It was formed near the Pont du Verdun bridge, which remained the only crossing over the Maine river until 1838. In 1028, the Count of Anjou Foulques Nerra rebuilt the Verdun bridge in stone, The name of the Port Ligny comes from “woody port”: it was a mecca for trading in wood, essential for the manufacture of barrels and boats in particular. But it was also in this port that we got our supplies of slate and freestone. Port Ligny remained a natural shore in the ground until the French revolution. Thereafter, began a vast period of development of the banks of the Maine. From 1791 to 1806, the city erected the Quai de la Poissonnerie, where the port reserved for cereals was located. It was not until 1839 that Port Ligny became Quai Ligny, a year after the construction of the pont de la Basse-Chaîne or Low-string bridge. A pier is set up there for steamboat travelers on the Nantes-Orléans line. Finally, in 1979, the last house on Quai Ligny was razed. Seven years later, the gardens of Quai Ligny and the tunnel under Place Molière, which removed the last traffic light from the expressway.
