Unlike the other Chemins de Notre-Dame, the red path explores exclusively the top of the plateau. It follows the pedestrian streets, then leaves the city centre taking the visitor to the south end of the promontory.
During your walk, you can stop to visit the small church of Saint-Porchaire, whose porch and steeple steps onto the pedestrian street. Not far is the town hall, as well as a remarkable example of 17th century religious architecture, the Saint-Louis chapel of the Jesuit School.
Finally, the long rue Carnot, lengthened more by the rue de la Tranchée, both lead you to the church of Saint-Hilary, a stop on the Way to Saint-James. Near is the doyenné : the former home built in the 16th century by the dean of the chapter of Saint-Hilary, Geoffroy d'Estissac, a protector of Rabelais. The large garden of Blossac offers some rest, in varied green spaces : French , English or contemporary garden.
