CITY OF LE MANS FRANCE'

1 Hour Paris TGV .

Leaving Paris Montparnasse SNCF station on a TGV fast train, i was in Le Mans in one hour. My hotel was near the station in Boulevard Robert Jarry. The hotel Ashley was comfy with TV and Tea/coffee in room. Bar downstairs. On the way to city centre i passed the church Notre-Dame De La Couture, it dates from the 12th century. I was in Le Mans in a November with fine sunny
weather.----When the name Le Mans is mentioned i think of the famous 24 hours race of Le Mans
Endurance Sports Car race which is held in June. There is a museum. --Le Mans is on the river Sarthe in North West France.
Its history goes back to Roman times, also the Plantagents played a big part. The town centre is well preserved, with the cathedral dedicated to St. Julien, the cities first Bishop. The cathedral is a fine Gothic building built between 11th
and 15th centuries. There is a red city wall, enclosing the lovely half timbered houses and cobbled
narrow streets,with quiet corners. LE  MANS  FRANCE. ---  6 pm in November.
