Day 2-Cité Plantagenêt--6/1/2022

 More than a quarter of a million people head to the small city of Le Mans in the department of Sarthe, Pays de La Loire each June for the epic Le Mans 24 Hours, one of the most famous car races in the world. The majority of them watch the race, enjoy the local cuisine and the friendly bars and leave. 

Beside the famous car race Le Mans is also as Cité Plantagenêt (The the Plantagenet City), a medieval area of about 50 acres of cobbled streets with one of the most extensive preserved old quarters in France. In the Middle Ages Le Mans was hugely important, and vital in the never-ending battles between the French and the English over who ruled France.

From the Cathedral we are walking into the old town.
