Thiron-Gardais is located on the D5 which is one of the main access routes to the Perche Eure-et-Loir from Luigny off the A11 motorway. At the entrance of the Regional Natural Park of Perche, this charming town has kept shops and local services, but also many recreational activities with significant associations, a pool, a gym, a fishing pond...

The village of Thiron-Gardais was born of an abbey founded by Bernard de Ponthieu in the great spiritual and intellectual leap facing Europe in the early twelfth century, of which he is one of the main facilitators and probably one of precursors.

In a nice part of town, the abbey and its grounds are the pride of Thiron-Gardais. At the end of the twentieth century, these places full of history come to life through the combination of several towns of the district who rely on tourism and cultural development of the territory of Perche Thironnais...

A prestigious history: significant efforts that have been made in recent years to restore the historical heritage of the town. These studies were consistent with a first tranche of restoration of buildings and aim to give the monument and its natural environment, the attractiveness necessary to make it a tourist and cultural center of quality, able to register significantly in the Parc Naturel Régional Perche.

The Field of the Abbey Thiron-Gardais, a tourist must Perche... Come discover, follow Renart the Goupil to discover the Thematic Gardens of the Abbey and one of the most influential religious orders in the Middle Ages!

And since July 6, 2016, the Museum of the Old Royal Military College of Thiron is open to the public, which further expands a little more historical heritage of Thiron-Gardais. A visit not to be missed.
