Capital of the ancient Principality of Salm Salm, in the Vosges, Senones takes place about fifty kilometers from Epinal, in the canton of Saint-Dié-des-Vosges. The town is located in the Rabodeau Valley, about thirty kilometers from Alsace and the city of Schirmeck.
The town was built around the Abbey of St. Peter in the seventh century. The French Revolution provokes the departure of the prince towards Germany, causing a famine on the territory. It was not until the nineteenth century that Senones found a certain industrial boom thanks to the development of textiles. This industry is gradually collapsing in the course of the twentieth century, especially after the impacts of the two world wars.
Senones is nonetheless a very tourist town and appreciated by visitors coming to discover an architectural and historical heritage of great interest.
