“Thouars - Ungrateful and Dog Muck capital of France”

Attraction details
Reviewed 10 May 2014

I really just want to write a review on Thouars so put it here in hope that most people will find it.

What a dump. Thouars is a horrible town. Full of run down empty shops, even worse than Blackburn or Warrington - now thats as bad as it gets. If you don't trip up over the mountains of chewing gum on the pavement you tread into the valleys of dog muck everywhere.

My other issue with Thouars results in an email to the Mayor of Thouars asking why they are so ungrateful:

"We visit Thouars quite frequently and last year visited the excellent museum commemorating the resistance movement during World War 2. It was interesting to see the co-operation between our two countries during those dark days and the risks, bravery and sacrifices of both your, and our countrymen, took to defeat the common enemy and help free France. That's why I was surprised and disappointed, both last year and this year, to note that on the roundabout approaching Thouars there were most European flags flying, including the German one (nothing wrong with the Germans, a lovely people, and thats all behind us), but alas the British Union Jack was conspicuous by it's absence.

To me it seems very ungrateful and I can only wonder why the Union Jack was not present? It is flown in most towns around here. Perhaps I'm missing something, and there is something that has caused Thouars to have ill feeling towards the British?

I would be interested in your comments on this matter."

Needless to say the mayor never bothered to reply nor has a Union Jack been flown.

First, the Mayor would like to thank you for your visit in our city. He read carefully your comments.
In recent years, the City has implemented a plan to revitalize the historic center and numerous efforts to maintain cleanliness.
Regarding flags installed at the roundabout, it is flags of cities with which Thouars has a twinning (Hannut, Port-Gentil, Diepholz and Helensburgh).
The Municipality hopes to again welcome in our beautiful city.
