Sainte-Suzanne-et-Chammes - Tourism, holidays & weekends guide in the Mayenne

The City of Sainte-Suzanne built a medieval triangle on a rocky outcrop overlooking the 70 m during the Erve (tributary of the Sarthe), bordering the Forest of Charnie. Its known history dates back to the unsuccessful siege of William the Conqueror in 1083 to 1086 (Camp of the English and dungeon can be visited), but there is also the Dolmen of Erves (oldest monument in the Mayenne) and remains from the Celts ("wall vitrified ").

Among the most beautiful villages in France since 2010.
