Located on one of the pilgrimage routes to Saint Jacques de Compostela, the village of Larchant reflects the plan of the medieval city, open to the outside with five doors. Instead of a national pilgrimage in the Middle Ages on the tomb of St. Mathurin, the village was property of the Chapter of Notre-Dame de Paris, since one thousand until the Revolution. On the hillside of the rock to the Devil, St. Mathurin fountain remains the testimony of a cult of the pre-Christian water.

Things to see and do

In the realm of rock climbing, the site of the Lady Jouanne is unavoidable. Located in the forest of the Commanderie, three kilometers from historic Larchant, the rock of the Lady Jouanne, the highest of the forest of Fontainebleau, dominates this natural amphitheater for enjoying the village in the distance and the swamp, reserve regional nature. The chaos of sandstone shaped by nature, amazed by their evocative shapes : the rock of the elephant, the turtle, eagle, whale...

The village retains vestiges of its old character. The Middle Ages is very present. The church, exceptional example of early Gothic age in Île-de-France, impresses with its size and beauty. Historic Monument by Prosper Mérimée, she visited all year. Its tower is guessed fifty meters from the agricultural plateau Gâtinais.
