A propos

This summer, the Paris 2024 Olympic Games will be synonymous with UNESCO!

Provins will have the honour of hosting the Olympic Torch Relay on Saturday 20 July 2024, with the support of the Department of Seine-et-Marne.

A unique opportunity to celebrate the values of the Olympic spirit and sport.

The passage of the flame will echo the priceless wealth of our thousand-year-old city, a UNESCO World Heritage Site!

The route will take in the heart of the medieval city, revealing its emblematic historic monuments (full route map available in the slideshow):
the flame will start at the top of the Cesar Tower, cross the courtyard of the Lycée Thibaut de Champagne (former palace of the Counts of Champagne), pass through the Place du Châtel and the majestic ramparts, to arrive at the Provins Tourist Office.

Throughout the day, entertainment and activity zones will be set up so that you can experience the excitement of the Games together:
– Courtyard of the Lycée Thibaut de Champagne,
– Place du Châtel,
– Espace Villegagnon (near the Porte de Jouy),
– Theater of the Ramparts (site of the show The Eagles of the Ramparts),
– Halle / Tourist Office reception area.

Complete programme in progress.

We invite you to turn out in force to support the athletes who will be carrying the flame with pride!

This historic date will be extended by an exceptional evening of “Provins by Candlelight” !

Provins and its heritage will then shine with a thousand flames…
