With a few hectares of the appellation Jasnières the edge of the territory of the side Dauvers Lhomme, Ruillé has its winemakers.

But his main interest is the huge religious community of Providence whose buildings and the chapel, built from 1820 to 1900, form an excellent example of the evolution of architecture in the 19th century.

Based on the set of Ruillé by Father Henri Dujarie, the congregation has since spread around the world!

The walls of the chapel are decorated with beautiful paintings of monumental painter Lionel Royer, born at Château-du-Loir.
