Found the walls after exploring near the cathedral - very impressive, with decorative brickwork, and later buildings incorporated into the walls. They are illuminated during La Nuit des Chimeres ( looked good in photos ) - unfortunately this was not taking place when we visited...More

This is one of your first views of old Le Mans as you drive in (although, i'm, not sure which direction we came from!) and it was a good sign that there are impressive delights within Le Mans. It's not just about the 24 Hour...More

Le Mans is just full of interesting stuff. This is near some apartment buildings but it was cool to learn more about these structures. It's fun to explore.

It was by accident that we found these amazing fortess walls which looked spectacular in the late evening twilight. The designs within the construction were very detailed and ornate. It's hard to fathom the vision of the time to not only construct a walled fortress...More
