TOWN PRESENTATION

Craon is a pretty flower city (ranked 3 flowers) at the gates of Anjou, Maine and Brittany. Labeled "Green Station" is located in the heart of the south Mayenne.

With its castle from the 18th historic monument and park of 42 hectares labeled Parks and Gardens (French garden, greenhouses, garden, chapel, laundry, laundry, ice) visited by 15 000 people each year, with the Priory of St. Clement and his rose garden, with the Halles, with a downtown restaurant that has given the open houses with wood sides, the city Craon bears witness to centuries of history. The city is jealous of his historical legacy by making his heart beat, remarkably restored architectural heritage (Les Halles, houses half-timbered facades tufa). Since 1848, the city Craon has also forged a name in racing and it's obvious to say that if Craon is also known in France and beyond, it's at the track of Touche, now classified "National", it should.

And do not miss the edges of the Oudon. They will reserve prospects quite picturesque in contact with old trades river and in a very poetic. Each Craonnais it forges its own space with pedestrian amenities, bicycle, and sporting heavily developed. Today the country Craonnais also provides the public with more than 200 km of roads and footpaths.
