This route invites you to follow in the footsteps of the painter Lucien Mainssieux by offering you the bucolic atmospheres of the Bois Joli hillside, decorated with wide viewpoints, all a stone's throw from the town center of Voiron.

Voiron is a city that has inspired local painters or passing through.
Since the 1885th century, many artists have stayed there to represent its landscapes and monuments. Among them, Lucien Mainssieux, born in Voiron in XNUMX, is a painter in love with his hometown. He walked through the streets with brushes and canvases in hand. Living on avenue d'Haussez, he crisscrosses this district and walks along the small streets and paths that lead to the heights of the city, in search of a point of view, an atmosphere, a decor.

Brush, pencil or camera in hand, do like him!
