Not to be missed: The Gallo-Roman thermal baths in Entrammes
In search of the oldest traces of civilisation in the Pays de Laval: the Gallo-Roman Thermal Baths of Inter-Amnes (Entrammes). Converted into a church at the end of antiquity, they are in a remarkable state of preservation and include 8.5-metre-high Roman walls, a row of four chambers and brick arches and windows. Precious signs of the Paleo-Christian church can also be added to the list. The enchantment of the site and the historical staging of the baths contribute to a surprising discovery.
