Flax - Tourism, holidays & weekends guide in the Eure

Upper Normandy is one of the biggest producers of flax in Europe. The fibre from this plant, which has been used since Antiquity, is made into clothes, household linen and technical fabrics, while its seeds are used to make flaxseed oil - rich in omega-3 acids - in the form of a food supplement.

To discover the history of this virtuous plant, be sure to pay a visit to the House of Flax in Routot. There you can learn about the various stages of the transformation process and all the things flax is used for.

In June, don't miss the Flax Festival in Routot market hall, which celebrates flax with a variety of activities, tastings and stands selling flax-based products. This time of year is also when the flax plants flower...the fields blossoming with blue flowers are beautiful at this time of year!
