One of the King Richard (The Lion Heartwifes) from England has lived in this place. There is a grave in her tribute there (I''m not sure if her body is really there...). A visit guide is imperative to undestand how this was part of history and its importance!

If you want to discover one of Le Mans' most charming place, there you have to go... The abbaye de l'Epau is well-conserved and you can walk throughout beautiful gardens... In addition, from the Abbaye you can reach a big park with animals form the farm and countryside-related activities.

This is a trip out from town and not very much to see there. If you have seen an abbeys then this one is not worth the effort. It took us about 45 minutes to see and photograph all there was of interest.

A quiet resting place for Queen Berengaria, wife of Richard I (The Lionheart). But also, don't miss the tombs at Fontevrault. andrew@stainersmith.demon.co.uk
