  • Regarding Heritage:
  • The Church of St. Eloi was built in the 12th century on the site of an ancient oratory. It was located on the edge of the lordship of Cottinville, probably the site of the present Lady Chapel of the church. It was largely rebuilt in the 16th century, consolidated and enlarged in the 19th century, restored in the 20th, and its exterior decoration was completed in 2003 by sculptor Stéphane Daireaux.

Farm was acquired by the abbey of Saint-Germain-des-Pres in the 18th century before being sold to rich citizens after the Revolution.

The Farm is now home to the Living Museum of the Val de Bievre, the Tithe Barn Theatre-Fresnes, theater offering a cultural season from September to May, and the Conservatory at the departmental outreach.
  • The look of the No. 3 Aqueduct Medici. In 1609, Henri IV, concerned about the water supply of Paris, decided to reactivate the Roman aqueduct which, Wissous, went to Lutece. At his death, Marie de Medici takes over the project to bring water from the water Rungis square to the Palace of Luxembourg. If work begins in 1612, it was not until 1628 that the water is distributed to the Parisians. 22 eyes of the 28 originally built remain. They gave their name to the village streets.
