This is a small village on the north-west of Lyon. The stone buildings remind the medieval epoch. Although the population was only 8 people at the beginning of 20th century, people came back because the village got a label of one of the most beautiful villages in France. They change in the medieval costume during the medieval festival in June. As the galette is the famous food, you should taste it.

Galette you must try when you go to Pérouges

Galette in Perouges

Pérouges is famous for sweets called galettes. It’s like a tart made with butter and sugar, and you can feel the slight lemon flavor in the crispy dough and sweetness. You can take it out, but when eating at a restaurant, it’s standard to have it with cider. Check out other specialties of the Rhône-Alps region here! !
