History and Civilisation in the Pays de Laval
- This tour will reveal all the stages in the urban and architectural development of the Pays de Laval. From colonisation in the Gallo-Roman period up to the present-day shaping of the urban fabric. We suggest you explore our history through some of the very significant buildings.
Programme for the day
- 10.00 a.m.: Explore the city of Laval, from its origins to the present day including discovery of the Jardin Botanique de la Perrine (Perrine Botanical Garden) where you will enjoy a panoramic view of the Mayenne Valley.
Worth noting: this visit can be theme-based: the medieval city, the new town.
- 12.30 p.m.: Lunch at one of the Pays de Laval restaurants.
- 3.00 p.m.: Tour resumes with discovery of the oldest traces of civilisation in the Pays de Laval: the Gallo-Roman thermal baths of Inter-Amnes (Entrammes). The historical staging makes for a particularly surprising visit.
