Mézières-lez-Cléry

The town of Mézières-lez-Cléry is nested between Val de Loire and Sologne. It is “a piece of Sologne at the doors of Orléans.” Synonymous with nature and authenticity, the town offers a true mosaic of colours and landscapes, that change with the seasons. Its inhabitants are called “Macériens” and “Macériennes”.

# Historic heritage

THE BUTTE DES ÉLUS

This very remarkable Gallic tumulus was built in 300 BC and its also known as the “Butte de Renaud-tombant.” Measuring 12 metres high and 70 metres round, the site has been classified since 1924.

The Butte des Élus is crowned by a statue of the Virgin Mary, which is said to have been put up in gratitude for the village’s protection during the 1870 war.

In the 19th century, a strange discovery was made by the owner of the site, who cleared a slope of the tumulus to plant grapevines and found a tomb where he uncovered two sword blades folded back onto themselves, fragments of armour, gold and bronze bracelets and necklaces, a medal and Gallic coins.

The story goes that young women passing seven times under the arches supporting the statue, without laughing or smiling, are guaranteed to find a husband or become fertile!

THE CHÂTEAU DE MÉZIÈRES-LEZ-CLÉRY

The current château was built in the 17th century and was restored in 1883, in the Neo-Louis XIII style. It replaces an old castle, the existence of which is recorded in the plans dating from 1640. A perfectly maintained landscaped park beautifully accompanies this private château, one of the largest in the region.
