  • Del Manoir de Rouessé a la Basílica de Notre-Dame d'Avesnières

    La visitamos un domingo a las nueve de la mañana. Dentro, había misa, así que sólo pudimos verla desde la puerta. Por fuera, es preciosa, con esa colección de arquitecturas una detrás de otra. Nos encantó. Fue una visita corta (unos 15 min)
