Saint-Denis-d'Anjou - Tourism, holidays & weekends guide in the Mayenne

A small character town full of picturesque charm, a medieval village with three bell towers... Saint-Denis-d'Anjou appeals to lovers of authentic heritage, with its 16th-century chestnut wood market halls, lords' residences, 15th-century canon's house converted into a town hall, floral streets, old forge which is still working today, and its beautiful fortified Romanesque church, which contains 16th-century wall paintings inspired by The Golden Legend by Jacques de Voragine.

For a relaxing, rejuvenating break, head towards the ponds at La Morinière, a protected area that's ideal for a spot of fishing, a picnic or a walk on the ornithological trail marked with educational signs!
