Few know that close to the tracks where the most famous race in the world takes place every year, the legendary 24 hours of Le Mans, lies a hidden gem : The medieval city of Le Mans, surrounded by the longest and best preserved Gallo-Roman walls in France, dating from the third century. The Plantagenêt dynasty, later kings of England, originated here. This splendid medival city, UNESCO Heritage site candidate, and stageset to most historic films, is remarkably restored and offers a real time tunnel experience. During the summer and around New Year’s Eve, a magical light show turns the Plantagenet City into a “Night of Dreams”. And three times a week, one of the most splendid farmer’s market in France spreads out at the foot of the cathedral along the city walls.
