Description

Are you a Cognac lover? If the answer is yes, you MUST check out the commune this famous French brandy is named after, by joining this live-streamed interactive Online Experience! This virtual tour will also appeal to those interested in French history as well, for Cognac also happens to be the birthplace of Francois I, a revered French king. 

We will begin by taking in the wonderful view of the Charente river from the Pont Neuf bridge that still remembers the footprints of general Charles de Gaulle. Then, we will walk on the quays observing the beautiful buildings and Cognac houses around the City centre. I will tell you about the town's original location, and why the salt trade was so important here during the middle ages. While walking through the city's narrow streets, I will show you the Saint Leger Church, one of the most beautiful in the region, along with several other interesting sites. 

Of course, we will also speak at length about Cognac's claim to fame, its famous brandy! So pour yourself a glass and learn how and why this wonderful drink came to be!
