L' Aigle and Saint Evroult abbey: in the heart of Ouche region
A patchwork of small, hedged in fields,
the agricultural region of Ouche has many attractive features: cheerful valleys, a vast forest inhabited by deer and wild boar and green pastures planted as orchards with flowering hedgerows... Picturesque villages and majestic ruins in particular that of the Saint Evroult Notre Dame du Bois Abbey are very nice to stroll about. Le Musée de la Grosse Forge at Aube has brought back to life the metallurgy industry, thanks to the several mills. Le Musée Juin 44 at L'Aigle, which recounts the history of the Normandy Landings, allows visitors to rediscover memories of this region's past.
