TOWN PRESENTATION

Domfront, medieval town, enjoys a privileged natural site and offers an exceptional view on a large wooded horizon. As part of the "most beautiful detours of France", Domfront invites visitors to stroll. Note also the high quality of its bloom throughout the year, which is to be rewarded with 3 flowers. Its history is rich.


SIGHTSEEING

  • The castle and its grounds: Domfront Castle, built on a sandstone outcrop, overlooking the gorge 50 m de la Varenne. In an undeniably strategic location, the castle was for centuries, one of the strongest dungeons of France. There are now two sections majestic.
  • The medieval town with its cobbled streets, ramparts, courtyards and timbered houses, awakening.
  • Charles Leander Museum: located in the Town Hall itself, it can be visited from Monday to Friday from 9am to 12pm and from 1:30 p.m. to 4:45 p.m.. You just contact the secretariat. The museum, or rather curiosity cabinet, consists of very different objects, well presented, giving it an undeniable charm.
  • The Notre Dame: This Romanesque church was built around 1020 by Guillaume de Belleme. It takes its name from its location next to a ford of the Varenne. After multiple phases of renovation, the church has retained its disposal in a Latin cross. The building is classified in 1889 by the Fine Arts.
  • The church of Saint-Julien: the church of Byzantine style with a square, was closed in 1993 for its originality and its unity. It is concrete. Currently, only the exterior are visible.
