This is a digital copy of a book that was preserved for generations on Hbrary shelves before it was carefully scanned by Google as part of a project 

to make the world's books discoverable online. 

It has survived long enough for the copyright to expire and the book to enter the public domain. A public domain book is one that was never subject 

to copyright or whose legal copyright term has expired. Whether a book is in the public domain may vary country to country. Public domain books 

are our gateways to the past, representing a wealth of history, culture and knowledge that's often difficult to discover.

'Go, little book, God send thee good passage.

PEEFACE. 



The chief object of the Handbook for Northern France, 
which now appears for the third time and corresponds with 
the sixth French edition , is to render the traveller as nearly 
as possible independent of the services of guides, commission- 
naires, and innkeepers, and to enable him to employ his time 
and his money to the best advantage. 

Like the Editor's other Handbooks, it is based on personal 
acquaintance with the country described , a great part of 
which has been repeatedly explored with the view of assuring 
accuracy and freshness of information. The Editor begs to 
tender his grateful acknowledgments to travellers who have 
sent him information for the benefit of the Handbook, and 
hopes they will continue to favour him with such communi- 
cations, especially when the result of their own experience. 

On the Maps and Plans the utmost care has been bestow- 
ed, and it is hoped that they will often be of material service 
to the travelled, enabling him at a glance to ascertain his 
bearings and select the best routes. 

A short account of the ordinary approaches to Northern 
France for English and American travellers will be found in 
the Introduction. 

Heights and Distances are given in English measure- 
ment. It may, however, be convenient to remember that 
1 kilometre is approximately equal to Vs Engl. M., or 8 kil. 
= 5 M. (nearly) . See also p. xxiii. 

In the Handbook are enumerated both the first-class hotels 
and those of humbler pretension. The latter may often be 
selected by the 'voyageur en gar^on' with little sacrifice o 
real comfort, and considerable saving of expenditure. Those 
which the Editor believes to be most worthy of commenda- 
tion, are denoted by asterisks ; but doubtless there are many 
of equal excellence among those not so d\«»0L\3L%xiS.^^^- ^^

conatant djanges, and that the treatment esperieuced by the 
traveller often depends on circumstances which can neither 
be foreseen nor controlled. Although prices generally have 
an upward tendency, the average charges stated in the Hand- 
book will enable the traveller to form a fair estimate of bis 
expenditure. 

To hotel-proprietors, tradesraen, aud others the Editor 
bega to intimate that a character for fair dealing and oonr- 
tesy towards travellers forms the sole passport to his com- 
mendation, and that advertisements of every form are strictly 
excluded from his Handbooks. Hotel - keepers are also 
warned against persons repreaonting themselvea as agents 
for Baedeker's Hand books.

INTRODUCTION. 



I. Language. Money. Expenses. Season. Passports. 
Oustom House. Octroi. 

Lanouaob. a slight acquaintance with French is indispensable 
for those who desire to explore the more reo^ote districts of Northern 
France, but tourists who do not deviate from the beaten track will 
generally find English spoken at the principal hotels and the usual 
resorts of strangers. If, however, they are entirely ignorant of the 
French language , they must be prepared occasionally to submit to 
the extortions practised by porters, cab-drivers, and others of a like 
class, which even the data furnished by the Handbook will not 
always enable them to avoid. 

Monet. The decimal Monetary System of France is extremely 
convenient in keeping accounts. The Banqne de France issues 
Banknotes of 6000, 1000, 600, 200, 100, and 60 francs, and these 
are the only banknotes current in the country. The French Oold 
coins are of the value of 100, 60, 20, 10, and 6 francs; Silvercoins 
of 6, 2, 1, Y2» *Jid 75 franc; Bronze of 10, 6, 2, and 1 centime 
(100 centimes s= 1 franc). ^Sou* is the old name, still in common 
use, for 6 centimes ; thus, a 6-franc piece is sometimes called 'une 
pi^ce de cent sous', 2 fr. = 40 sous, 1 fr. s= 20 sous, Y2 ^r* = 
10 sous. Italian, Belgian, Swiss, and Greek gold coins are received 
at their fUll value, and the Austrian gold pieces of 4 and 8 florins 
are worth exactly 10 and 20 fr. respectively. Belgian , Swiss , and 
Greek silver coins (except Swiss coins with the seated figure of 
Helvetia) are also current at full value; but Italian silver coins, 
with the exception of the 6-lira pieces, should be reftised. The only 
foreign copper coins current in France are those of Italy and occa- 
sionally the English penny and halfpenny, which nearly correspond 
to the 10 and 6 centime piece respectively. 

English banknotes and gold are also generally received at the 
full value in the larger towns, except at the shops of the money- 
changers, where a trifling deduction is made. The table at the begin- 
ning of the book shows the comparative value of the French, English, 
American, and German currencies, when at par. CircuUw ^o\.e^ w.

m. flan of Tour. 
The traveller Is strongly recaaimended to sketch cut a pUo 
of Ills tour In advance, as this, even though not rlgidl; adbeied 
to, will be found of the greatest use in aiding him to regnUte his 
mavamentB, to eronomtES liii time, and to gtlard against overlook- 
ing an; place of interest. English and American tourists are apt to 
confine tbeir interest in N. France to the districts through which 
they are whitlad by the express-trains from the N. seaports to Paris ; 
bnt the more leisurely traveller will find much to arrest his atten- 
tion and employ his time plBiaantly in various parte of the country 
coming within the scope of this Handbook. Thoagh N. France ia 
les8 richly gifted with natural beaaty than those parts of the coiintty 
which border on ths Alps or the Fyrenses, it sttll affords mueh 
attractive scenery in Normandy, Brittany, the valley of the SbIiib, 
the VosgBB, and the Ardennes. On the other hand it is extremely 
rich in ar chits ctural monnments of the greatest importance, con- 
taining an unparalleled series of magnificent Gothic churches at 
Bourn, Amitm, Btauuais, Caen, 0\'aira, Tovra, Bhtims, Bourga, 
Oritani, Troyu, and Laan, while the Romanesque style Is well Ulns' 
trated in the ahbey-chucches oSCaen and in many smaller examples. 
The ancient Ahbty of Mont St. Michil is, perhaps, the most pictni- 
Bsqne edifice In France. Among secular edifices may be mentioned 
the magnificent Palais de Justice at Routn, the Renaissance chateaux 
of BioliT and Cftamiord, the mediaval castles a! Fitrrefoads, Coimy, 
Ch&ttait Gaiilard, and Rnmburti , the mansion of Jacques OcEui at 
Bottrgti, and the quaint old houses of Liiitui, Rotien, etc. The art 
collections of LilU are worthy of jv great capital, and those of iJouoi, 



III. PLAN OF TOUR. xv 

Caen, Valenciennes ^ Rennes^ Nantes , Dijon, and Besanfon are also 
of considerable value. The busy commercial harbour of Le Havre 
and the military ports of Cherbourg and Brest deserve a visit, while 
Nancy y the ancient capital of Lorraine, has a special interest for the 
historical student. Lastly, mention must be made of the imposing 
antiquarian relics of Camac, 

The following short itineraries give an idea of the time required 
for a visit to the most attractive points. Paris is taken as the starting- 
point in each case, but the tourist starting fi:om London will find no 
difficulty in adapting the arrangement to his requirements by begin- 
ning at the places most easily reached from England. An early start is 
supposed to be made each morning, but no night-travelling is assumed. 
The various tours given below are arranged so that they may be 
combined into one comprehensive tour of two months (comp. Maps). 
The tourist should careftilly consult the railway time-tables in order 
to guard against detention at uninteresting junctions.

winter all the carriages are heated. The trains are generally provided 
with smoking carriages , and in the others smoking is allowed un- 
less any one of the passengers objects. Ladies' compartments are 
also provided. The trains invariably pass each other on the left, so 
that the traveller can always tell which side of a station his train 
starts from. The speed of the express-trains is about 36-46 M. per 
hour, but that of the ordinary trains is very much less. 

Before starting, travellers are generally cooped up in the close 
and dusty waiting-rooms, and are not admitted to the platform until 
the train is ready to receive them ; nor is any one admitted to the 
station to take leave of friends without a platform-ticket (10 c), 
which may usually be obtained from the ticket-checker. Tickets 
for intermediate stations are usually collected at the 'sortie' ; those 
for termini, before the station is entered. Travellers within France 
are allowed 30 kilogrammes (66 Engl, lbs.) of luggage free of charge ; 
those who tfre bound for foreign countries are allowed 26 kilogr. only 
(66 lbs.); 10 c. is charged for booking. On the Belgian, Swiss, and 
Alsatian lines all luggage in the van must be paid for. In all cases 
the heavier luggage must be booked, and a ticket procured for it; 
this being done, the traveller need not enquire after his 'impedi- 
menta' until he arrives and presents his ticket at his final destination 
(where they will be kept in safe custody, several days usually gratis). 
Where, however, a frontier has to be crossed, the traveller should 
see his luggage cleared at the custom-house in person. At most of 
the railway-stations there is a conaigne^ or left-luggage office, where 
a charge of 10 c. per day is made for one or two packages, and 6 c. 
per day for each additional article. Where there is no consigne^ the 
employes will generally take care of luggage for a trifling fee. The 
railway-porters (faciewi) are not entitled to remuneration, but it is 
usual to give a few sous for their services. — Interpreters are found 
at most of the large stations. 

Dog Tickets cost 30 c. for 20 kilometres (I2V2 M.) or less, and 
5 c. for each additional 3 kil. (I3/4 M.), with 10 c. for booking. 

There are no Re/rethment Rooms (Buffets) except at the principal 
stations^ and aa the viands are generally indifferent, the charges high, 
and the stoppages hrief, the traveller is advised to provide himself be- 
forehand with the necessary sustenance and consume it at his leisure in 
the railway-carriage. Baskets containing a cold luncheon are sold at some 
of the buffets for 3-4 fr. 

Sleeping Carrietget ( Wagons-Lits) are provided on all the main lines, and 
the ^Compagnie Internationale des Wagons-Lits' has an office at Paris (Place 
de rOp^ra 3). Dining Cart (Wag one- Restaurants) are also run in the chief 
day expref>ses (d^j. 3V2, D. 4-5 fr.); 2nd cl. dining-cars on the Le Havre 
and Le Mans lines (d^j. 2V4, D. SVa ".). Wine is extra (half-a-bottle, 1 fr.). 

PiUows and Coverlets may be hired at the chief stations (1 fr.). 

The most trustworthy information as to the departure of trains 
is contained in the indicatfur des Chemms deFer, published weekly, 
and sold at all the stations (76 c). There are also separate and Iq.%% 
bulky time-tables CLivrets Chaix') for the diffet^xv^.W.w'i.^-. ^^s.^^^^^

and in some cases is supplemented by the Rotonde^ a less com- 
fortable hinder-compartment, which, however, affords a good retro- 
spective view of the country traversed. The Impiriale, Banquette, 
or roof affords the best view of all and may be recommended in good 
weather. It is advisable to book places in advance if possible , as 
they are numbered and assigned in the order of application. The 
fares are fixed by tariff and amount on an average to about 1 1/2 ^ 
per mile (coup^ extra). — For short distances the place of the dili- 
gences is taken by Omnibuses ^ equally comfortless vehicles, in which, 
however, there is no distinction of seats. Those which run in con- 
nection with the railways have a fixed tariff, but in other cases bar- 
gaining is advisable. — Hotel Omnibuses^ see p. xxi. 

Hired Carriages (Voitures de Louage) may be obtained at all the 
principal resorts of tourists at charges varying from 12 to 20 fr. per 
day for a single-horse vehicle and from 26 to 30 fr. for a carriage- 
and-pair, with a pourboire to the driver of l-2fr. The hirers almost 
invariably demand more at first than they are willing to take, and a 
distinct understanding should always be come to beforehand. A 
day's journey is reckoned at about 30 M., with a rest of 2-3 hrs. at 
midday. — Saddle Horses, Asses, and Mules may also be hired. 

V. Cycling. 

Cycling is a popular amusement in France, and the cyclist's 
wants are everywhere fairly well provided for. On and after May 1st, 
1899, cyclists entering France with their machines must obtain from 
the customs-agent a cycle-permit (60 c), which must be carried on 
the person and produced whenever required. If, however, the cyclist 
remains more than three consecutive months in France, he must 
apply for an official metal badge, to be fixed on the steering-posi 
These badges are delivered free on payment of the necessary fees 
and the annual tax (6 fr.). Each cycle must have a badge for each seat, 
and must, moreover, be furnished with a lamp and a bell or horn. 

Cyclists in France will find it advantageous to join the Touring 
Club de France (5 Rue Coq-Heron, Paris), the annual subscription 
to which is 6 fr. (5s.), including a copy of the monthly Gazette. T]w 
club publishes an Annuaire (1 fr.), with a list of cyclists' hotels, 
repairers, representatives, etc., and also a series of Itineraries (5 c. 
each). Members of the British Cyclists' Touring Club (47 Victoria St., 
London, S.W.) also enjoy special privileges. 

English riders should remember that the rule of the road in 
France is the reverse of that In England: keep to the right on 
meeting, to the left in overtaking another vehicle.

ilscGE, whero the influx of visitors is giest. In 
r plmcE the inns generally retain their prinlciie provinciil 
actetiftics, whicli might prove talhei an attraction than other- 
r the shamefal derectiienees or the sanitary u- 
rangemcnts. The beds, however, are generally clean, and the cuidne 
tolerable. It Is therefore advisable to frequent none but the leading 
hotala in places off the beaten tia(;k of lontistE, and to avoid being 
misled by (be appellation of 'Grand-Uolel', which is often applied to 
the most ordinary intis. Soap is seldom or never provided. 

The chaigee of provincial hotels are usually somewliat lower tban 
at Paris, but at many of the largest modent establishments the tariff 
is drawn op on quite a Parisian scale. Lights are not generally 
charged for, and attendance is often included in tho price of the 
bedroom. It is prudent, though not absolutely necessary, to anquire 
the cliarges in advance. The following are the average cbaigea: 
room lVl~^ '''-i breakfast or 'premier dejeuner', consisting of 'c*K 
Bulaif, with bread and'butter, l-t'/ifr.; Itmeheon or 'douil#me 
dejeuner', taken about 11 a.m., 2-3 fr. ; dinner, usually about 6 p.m., 
'2l/t-4 fr. Wine, beer, or cider ftho ordinary beverage of Nonuand]' 
and Brittany] U |onerally included in the charge for dinner, sicapt 
in a few towns in the north-west. Beer is not often met with at 
table d'h6te eicept in tbe secoiid-clasa liotols of such towns as Bou- 
logne and Le Havre. The second dejeuner wilt probably ba regarded 
as BuparOuous by most Englisli and American travellers, eepBclally 
na it occupies a considerable lime during the best part of llie day. 
A slight luncheon at a cafe', which may be had at any hour, will ba 
fonnd far more convenient and expeditions. Attendance on the 
table d'hote is not compulsory, but the charge for rooms is raised If 
meals are not taken In the house, and the visilar will scarcely obtain 
so good a dinner in a restaurant for the same price. In many botals 
visitors are received 'en pension' at a charge of S-7 fr. per day and 
upwards (premier dejeuner extra). Tho usual fee for attendance at 
hotels is 1 fr. per day. If no charge is made in the bill; if seirice 
Is charged, 60 c. a day in addition is generally expected. 

When the traveller remains for a week or mora at a hotel, Itia 
advisable to pay, or at least call for the account, every two or Ihrae 
days, in order that erroneous insertions may be at once detected. 
Verbal reckonings are objectionable, except in some of the mors 
3 and primillve districts where bills are never written. A 
waiter's mental arithmetic Is faulty, and the faults are seldom tii 
u of the trateller. A habit too often prevails of presenting the 
Lt the last moment, when mistakes or wilful impositions cannot 
oaslly be detected or rectified. Those who intend starting early in 
fAa morning should therefore ask tot ttittt \i\\\b <m 'tVvi yi6'''««»

IX. Weights and Measures. 

(In u?e since 1799.) 
The English equivalents of the French weights and measures 
are given approximately. 

Millier = 1000 kilogrammes = 19 cwt. 2 qrs. 22 lbs. 6 oz. 
Kilogramme, unit of weight, = 275 lbs. avoirdupois s= 

27io Ihs. troy. 
Quintal = 10 myriagrammes = 100 kilogrammes = 220 lbs. 
Hectogramme (7jo kilogramme) = 10 decagrammes = 100 gr. 
= 1000 decigrammes. (100 grammes = 31/5 oz. ; 16 gr. 
= V2 oz- ; 10 gr. = V3 oz. ; 772 gr. = V4 oz.) 

Myriametre = 10,000 m^res s= 675 Engl, miles. 

Kilometre = 1000 mMres = 5 furlongs = about 5/g Engl. mile. 

Hectometre = 10 d^camfttres = 100 metres. 

Mdtre, the unit of length, the ten-millionth part of the sphe- 
rical distance from the equator to the pole ss= 3,0784 Paris 
feet = 3,281 Engl, feet = 1 yd. 31/3 in. 

DtfcimMre (Yjq m^tre) = 10 centimetres = 100 millimetres. 

Hectare ("square hectometre) = 100 ares = 10,000 sq. metres 

= 272 acres. 
Are (square decametre) = 100 sq. metres. 
Declare = 7io *re s= 10 sq. metres. 
Centiare = i/jqc are = 1 sq. metre. 

Hectolitre =s 7io cubic metre = 100 litres s= 22 gallons. 
Decalitre = i/joo cubic metre == 10 litres = 21/5 gals 
Litre, unit of capacity, = 1^/4 pint; 8 Utc^^ =^^1 ojcvwX., 



xxiv X. HISTORICAL SKETCH. 

• 

The following terms of the old system of measurements are still 
sometimes used : — 

Livre = ^U kilogramme s= I^/jq Ih. 

Pied = 1/3 metre = 13 in. 

Aune = l^/smfetre = 1 yd. 11 in. 

Toise = l®/io ni^tre a= 2 yds. 4 in. 

Lieue = 2y2 miles. 

Arpent = 11/25 acre. 

Sutler = IV2 hectolitre = 33 gals. 



The thermometers commonly used in France are the Centigrade 
and R^aumur^s. The freezing point on both of these is marked 0°, 
the boiling-point of the former 100°, of the latter 80°, while Fahren- 
heit's boiling-point is 212° and his freezing-point 32^. It may easily 
be remembered that 6° Ceijtigrade = 4° Reaumur = 9° Fahrenheit, 
to which last 32° must be added for temperatures above freezing. 
For temperatures below freezing the number of degrees obtained by 
converting those of Centigrade or Re'aumur into those of Fahrenheit 
must be subtracted from 32. Thus 6° C = 4° R. = 9 -j- 32 = 41° F. j 
20° C = 16° R. = 36 -h 32 = 68° F. Again, — 6° C = - 4°R. 
= 32 — 9 = 23°F.; - 200c = - 16°R. = 32 - 36 = - 40F. 

X. Historical Sketoh. 

Herovingians. The history of France, properly so called, be- 
gins at the end of the fifth century of the Christian era, when 
Clovis I. (481-611), son of Childeric^ king of the Ripuarian Franks 
of Tournay, expelled the Romans from Northern Gaul (ca. 496), em- 
braced Christianity, and united all the Franks under his sway. The 
Merovingian Dynasty ^ which he founded and which took its name 
from Meroveus, the father of Childeric, rapidly degenerated. The 
Frankish state was several times divided among different princes 
of the line, and this gave rise to long civil wars and finally to a 
deadly rivalry between Eastern France, or Austrasia, and Western 
France, or Neustria. The family of Pepin , heads of the ^Leudes' 
or great vassals of Austrasia and hereditary 'Mayors of the Palace', 
first of Austrasia, and afterwards also of Neustria and Burguiidy, 
took advantage of this state of affairs to seize for themselves the 
supreme power, after Charles Martel had saved the country from 
the Saracenic invasion by the great victory of Poitiers (732). 

Carlo vingians. The first king of this dynasty was Pepin thb 
Short (le Bref)^ who assumed the crown in 762. His son — 

Charlemagne (768-814), from whom the dynasty is named, 
by his able administration and by his victories over the Arabs, 
Lombards, Saxons, Avars, etc., founded a vast empire, which, how- 
ever, lasted but little longer than that of Clovis. After the death of 
his son — 



X. HISTORICAL SKETCH. xxv 

Louis I. Qe Debonnaire ; 814-840), his realms wore divided by 
the Treaty of Verdun (843) between Louis the Oerman, who be- 
came King of Germany; Lothaire^ who got Italy, Burgundy, and 
Lotharingla or Lorraine; and -^ 

Charles II. the Balb {le Chauve; 840-877), who ruled over 
France. He and his three successors Louis II. the Stammerer (le 
Blguti 877-879), Louis m. (879-882), and Carloman (879-884) 
proved themselves weak and incapable rulers, who were able neither 
to protect their kingdom from the inroads of the Normans nor their 
regal power from encroachments at the hands of the feudal nobles. 

Charles III. the Fat {le Qros,- 884-887), son of Louis the 
German and himself Emperor 6f Germany, succeeded Carloman in 
884, but left the care of defending Paris from the Normans to Count 
Odo or Eudes, Duke of France and Count of Paris, in whose favour 
he was deposed in 887. Odo was the ancestor of the Capetian fam- 
ily (see below). 

Charles IV. (le Simple; 898-923), son of Louis le B5gue, suc- 
ceeded Eudes and acquiesced in the establishment of the duchy of 
Normandy. He also was overthrown by the nobles, who put in his 
place, first, Robert (922-923),, brother of Eudes, and then Raoul 
[923-936), Robert's son-in law. Three other Carlovingians then 
bore the title of King; Louis IV. (d' Outremer ; 936-964), son of 
Charles the Simple; Lothaire (954-986); and Louis V. {le Fai- 
neant; 986-987); but these monarchs possessed less real power 
than their great subjects Hugh the Great, son of Robert, and Hugh 
Cijpet, 

Capetians. Hugh or Hugues Capet, grand-nephew of Count 
Eudes, was declared king of France in 987 and founded the Third 
or Capetian Dynasty ,^ which furnished France for eight centuries 
with an unbroken line of monachs, under whom the country ad- 
vanced to greatness and independence.

X. HISTORICAL SKETCH. xxvii 

Louis XL (1461-83) breaks up the Ligue du Bien Public, which 
his hasty and sweeping reforms had called into existence. He sub- 
sequently displays greater astuteness, and considers no means un- 
fair that aid him to deal a mortal blow at the feudal system. He 
effects great things in administrative reform and territorial unity, 
and puts France in a condition to aspire to foreign conquests. His 
chief acquisitions are Burgundy, Franche-Comte, Artois, and 
Provence. 

Charles VIII. (1483-98) marries Anne of Brittany, whose duchy 
is thereby united with the French crown, and makes a temporary 
conquest of Naples (1496), on which he has hereditary claims.

Spanish allies, he is defeated by them on the Garigliano in 1503, 
on which occasion Bayard is present. The League of Cambrai is 
formed for the purpose of expelling the Venetians from the main- 
land of Italy. The Venetians defeated at Agnadello (1609); but 
they succeed in destroying the League, and in forming the Ligue 
Sainte for the purpose of expelling the French from Italy. They 
defeat the French at Ravenna, 1512. 

Francis I. (1515-47), second-cousin and son-in-law of Louis XII., 
defeats the Swiss at Marignano, and recovers the Duchy of Milan 
(1515). Four wars with Charles V. for the possession of Burgundy 
and Milan. Francis defeated and taken prisoner at Pavia (1525).

Catherine de Medicis (d. 1688); assassinated at St. Cloud by Jac- 
ques Clement, a Dominican friar.

XI. Political Oeography. 

Population. At the eensus taken in Mar.'h, 1896, Franca, a«- | 

eluding her seamen and coionies, contained 38,617,975 inliUi., | 

iiiclading i, 027,491 foreigners, moat of whom were Belgitiu,^

XI. POLITICAL GEOGRAPHY. xxxv 

a peace-footing the former consists of 540,000 men and the latter 
of 800,000 men, forming a total of 1,340,000. On a war-footing 
these totals rise to 1,800,000, 2,000,000, and 3,800,000. 

Navy. For naval purposes France is divided into five Prifectures 
Maritimes, the seats of which are Cherhourg, Brest, Lorient, Roche- 
fort, and Toulon. The fleet consists of ahout 300 war vessels in 
commission, including 26 ironclads and 35 crusers. These are 
manned hy 71,000 sailors and marines, a total that can be raised 
to 120,000 in time of war. 

Justice. Each canton contains a Justice de Paix or Justice of 
the Peace; each arrondissement & Tribunal of the First Instance ; and 
each department a Cour d' Assises^ or criminal court. Above these 
are 26 Cours d'Appely or courts of appeal, in the principal towns, and 
the Cour de Cassation^ or supreme court of appeal, at Paris. There 
are also Commercial^ Military, and Naval Courts in places where 
such tribunals have been found desirable. 

Education. Education is compulsory on all children between 
six and thirteen years. In the budget a sum of about 130 million 
francs (5,200,0C0i.) is set down for the Minister of Public Instruc- 
tion, nearly two-thirds being allotted to elementary education. 

The Higher Education is entrusted to seventeen Universities^ 
which until 1896 were known as ^acad^mies universitaires'. Two 
of these universities (those of Paris and Bordeaux) have the five fac- 
ulties of theology, law, medicine, science, and letters; three (Lyons, 
Nancy, Lille) have four faculties, eight have three, two have two, 
and two (Marseilles and Rouen) have one faculty only. There are 
also *Faculte's' of Protestant Theology at Paris and Montauban, and 
Roman Catholic Institutes at Paris, Angers, Lyons, and Lille. 

Secondary Education is imparted by about 100 Lycies and 250 
Colleges CommunnuXj including 30 lyce'es and 30 colleges for girls. In 
addition to these there still exist about 350 private colleges and 350 
ecclesiastical colleges. 

There is at least one Elementary School in each commune, irre- 
spective of private schools.^ 

The educational work of each department is presided over by an 
Inspecteur d' Academic^ and each arrondissement has an Inspecteur 
d' Instruction Primaire. 

In addition to the above-mentioned schools and colleges are 
numerous Technical and Special Institutions. 

Religion. All religions are equal by law, and three sects, viz, 
Roman Catholics^ Protestants, and Jews, receive grants from govern- 
ment, the items in the budget under this head amounting to 45 qi 
50 million francs. The overwhelming majority q1 >^ci^ \\^iijJw\."«s\\A ^"^

railway-station, lies nearest to the Place d'Armes; the imposing 
*New Harbour farther to the E. The new Oare Maritime (PI, 0, 2), 
or Maritime Station ^ where passengers from England find the train 
for Paris waiting, is situated on the N.E. side of the Avant-Port 
(PI. B, 0, 2), and is connected by a short branch-line skirting the 
new harbour with the Oare CentraU (see below). 

The old Hotel de Ville (PI. B, C, 3), in the Place d'Armes, the 
centre of the old town, was erected in 1740 on the site of a former 
building of which the tower still remains (15th cent.). It is adorned 
with bronze busts (1636) of the Due de Guise, *lib^rateur de Calais en 
1558', and Richelieu, the founder of the citadel in 1634. On the bal- 
cony is a bust of Eustache de St. Pierre. The H6tel de Yille contains 
a small Musie (paintings, antiquities, natural history, etc.) ; open 10 
to 4 or 5 on Tues., Thurs., Sat., Sun., and holidays. — To the left 
is a massive square Watch Tower, the foundation of which is 
referred to 810, and which was used as a lighthouse until 1848. 

The church of Notre-Dame (PI. C, 4), approached by the street 
of the same name leading to the E. from the Place d'Armes, was 
almost completely rebuilt during the English occupation of the 
town, and it has undergone considerable renoYation since 1866. 
The N. side is partly concealed by a reservoir; the spire is un- 
pleasing. The high -altar, with a fine reredos in Italian marble 
(1624-28), decorated with statues, high reliefs, and an Assumption 
by Seghers, the iron choir-screen, and a Descent from the Cross by 
Rubens (?), in the left transept, are the chief objects of interest 
in the interior. 

At the end of the Rue de Guise, which begins to the left of the 
H6tel de Ville, is the Hotel de Guise (PI. B, 0, 4), in the English 
Tudor style, originally founded by Edward III. as a guildhouse for 
the woolstaplers , and presented to the Duke of Guise after his 
capture of the town. The Place Richelieu leads hence towards the 
Gare Centrale, passing the Jardin Richelieu (PL 0, 4), in which a 
Monument to Mustache de St, Pierre and his Companions (p. 4), by 
Rodin, was erected in 1895. On the opposite side of the street is 
the Hdtel des Posies, with the Public Library (20,000 vols.) on the 

first floor (open daily, except Sun., 10-1 and 4-9; closed in Sept.). 

The Sea-Bathing Establishment (PI. A, B, 2) ia situated beyond the ol«l 
harbour. When the tide is out the water is very shallow for a lonj? 
distance from the shore. 

The Gare Centrale (PI. B, 5), or principal railway-station, lies 
between Calais proper and St. Pierre, and has approaches from 
both. Near it, on the St. Pierre side, are a pretty Park and the 
Place Centrale (PI. C, 5), in which a new Hotel de Ville is to b(^ 
erected. 

St. Pierrb-lbs- Calais is the industrial and commercial part of 
Calais. Its prosperity is due chiefly to its extensive ra.a.^\\l'«k.^^»^^^ 
of tulle and lace, an industry which was iwtto^MC.^^ ^^^^^^^S^K^

In 1568 the French were defeated on the sands of Oravelines bry the 
Spaniards under Egniont, who was assisted by the broadsides of an BngUah

Basse Yille oo the left or W. bank of the Liaue, on which U the 
principal raliwiy-station faee below] , ia known es Capicure. Its 
iihuidh of at, VincerU-de-Faul (PI. D, 4, 5) is a moilein Gothio ediflee 
in the style of tlie 13th century. 

The HarbOMT, espenially the E. part near the Douane (PL D, 2], 
pieaentj a very buiy aoene. Boulogne stands next to MaTseilleB, La 
ilayre, and Bordeani among tha seaports of France. Its coQunoroial 
ImpDitanoe ia inoieasing, and in I8T9 extensive opeiationa weia 
hogua with the view of eiilaiging the port, but their uompletlon 
has been deterred owing to the lack of fnnds. Within the port new 
stone quays have been bnilt and the harbour deepened to enable 
vesaela to arrive and start at low water. The Batain 3 jJot, a large 
semidrcuUr basin on the left bank of tbe Liane, was oouatmcted by 
Napoleon to accommodate the Sotilla which waa to convey hii tioapi 
tn Euglsud (see p. 10% The BuilcJtn^ Slipi and the Batta-its defend- 
ing tha entranfie to the harbonr are both situated on the W. bank. * 
The West Fier stretches into the aei for a diatance of 765 yds. 

The Qart Maritime (PI. D, 2), on the quay of the FolkeHtone 
Eteamers (p. 7), is connected with the principal Railway aiation 
I PI. D, E, 4) by a sbort branch-line. On the right bank of the 
Liane, Immediately beyond the Pont Mar^tt (PI. E, 3), is a bronte 
statue, by Lafrance, of Ft(d(ric Sauvage (P1,E,3), wlvo was among 
the Hnt to use screw propellers for ateamboats. — Thence the Quai 
Qamleita leada to the N. to the HalU (PI. E, 3], in the smaU squue 
adjoining which is a etatne of Edward Jenner (1749-1823), the dis- 
coverer of vaccination, by Eug. Paul. 

The FUh MarkU Is lield e&rly in the monlne Id Ibe MalU (PI. B, 3). 
Tbe llsbenaen and tbeir rnmilies occupy a aepnnta qaailer ('la Baarrtere') 
on tbo W. Bids of the town, and form one-tenlU of tlie population. They 
imrtly adhere to lliB pictarasque costume of their inoeatDra, and thej differ 
Bomewbal in oharacter and customs from Ltie nther inhabltsnl; of the town. 

Farther along the busy quay is the Dauane (PI. D, 2), or custom 
bouse, near which is a largo salt-warehouse. 

The "Etablisstmtnt de Bairn, with its Garden and handsome 
Casino (PI. D, 1, 2), occupies the rest of the space between tbe 
E, Pier and the cliffs. The garden is open to visitors, but non- 
Bubsctlbere pay 20 o, for admlasion on concert-days (aubacilp., 
SOB p. 7). The beach is sandy and very hot in aommer. Tha 
Etablissement contatne a swimming-bath Cur use when the sea is 
too rough for bathing. ^ The foot of the cliffs, beyond the casino, 
is skirted by the BouUvard Sic, Btusc, named tn honour of tlis 
eminent critic (1819-56), who was born at Boiilogne.

stinct. — On the cliff is the ruined Tour cfOdre ('Turris ardens'; 
PI. D, 1), a Roman beacon-tower, built under Caligula in 40 A. D. 
— The modern Gothic church of 8t. Pierre-des-Marins (PI. E, 2), 
with a lofty spire, is in the style of the 14th century. 

We now retrace our steps to yisit the town. The Rue Victor 
Hugo (PI. E, 3), running almost parallel with the harbour, and its 
continuation, the Rue Nationale^ contain the principal shops. The 
Rue Adohphe Thiers, running parallel to the Rue Victor Hugo, begins 
at the Place Dalton (PI. F, 3), in which rises the church of 8t; 
Nicholas, of the 17-18th centuries. The Orande Rue ascends from 
this point to the Haute Ville. 

The Museum (PI. F, 3), in the Grande Rue, contains ethnograph- 
ical and historical collections, some Egyptian antiquities, and a few 
pictures (open in summer daily, except Tues., 11-4; in winter on 
Sun., Wed., Thurs., and Sat.). The Public Library, on the second 
floor, contains 55,000 vols, and 300 MSS. (open daily, except 
Frid., 10-4). 

At the top of the Grande Rue, on the left, is the Sous^PrSfecture 
(PI. F, 3), the pretty Square in front of which is adorned with a 
colossal bust of Henri II., by David, commemorating the restoration 
of the town to France by the English in the reign of that monarch 
(1650). In the Boulevard Mariette, farther on, is a bronze statue of 
Aug. Mariette (PI. G, 2), the eminent Egyptologist, who was a native 
of Boulogne (1821-81), by Jacquemart. A little to the N. is a public 
park known as Les Tintelleries (PI. F, 2), where concerts are given 
in summer. A monument in this park, by Thomas, commemorates 
the first successful balloon-voyage from France to England, achieved 
in 1886 by Fr.Lhoste. Close by is the Boulogne -Tintelleries Station 
(p. 6) on the line to Calais. 

The Haute Villb (PL E, G, 2, 3) is enclosed by ramparts, dating 
from the 13th cent., 4S0yds. long, 350yds. broad, and flanked with 
round turrets, 55 ft. high. Of its four gateways, the Port* dc« Danes, 
the Porte Oayole, and the Porte de Calais, are still extant, and the 
S.W. gate has also been re-opened for foot-passengers. — We enter 
by the Porte des Dunes, flanked by two massive round towers, within 
which, to the left, are situated the modem PoZais de Justice (PI. F, 3) 
and (a little farther on) the Hotel de Ville (PI. G, 3), erected in 1734 
on the site of an ancient castle, where the crusader Godfrey de Bouil- 
lon was born in 1065. 

In the Rue de Lille, which leads from the H6tel de Ville to the 
Porte de Calais, is the Cathedral of Notre-Dame (¥h G, 2), a building 
in the degraded Italian style, erected in 1827 -d6 on the site of a 
Gothic church which was" destroyed in 1793. The lantern sur- 
mounting the dome is crowned with a colossal statue of the Virgin, 
which forms the most conspicuous point in the whole town. Ex-

In the public gaiden at the end of this Place is the Musie d^ Ab- 
beville et du Ponthieu (open on Thurs., Sun., and holidays, 12 to 4 
or 5; at other times on application), containing natnral history 
collections, paintings, engravings, sculptures, etc. The Public Lib- 
rary, in an adjoining building, contains 38,000 vols, and 230 MSS. 
— The Eglise du 8t, Sipulcre, to the left from the Place St. Pierre, 
dates from the 15th century. 

The Rue Bouchex-de-Ferthes, the first on the left as we quit the 
Place de rAmiral-Gourbet by the Rue St. Gilles, is called after 
the learned geologist and antiquarian of that name (1788-1868), 
whose house , in this street, is now occupied by the small Musee 
BoucheT'de-PeriheSf consisting of a library and.collections of paint- 
ings, sculpture, furniture, porcelain, botanical specimens, flint axe- 
heads, and prehistoric implements in bone (adm. as to the preced- 
ing Mus^e; closed on Mon.). 

Xjl^e church of S -Qilles, at the end of the Rne St. Gilles, 
possesses a beautiful Flamboyant portal. No. 83 in this street is a 
handsome old house with caryatides, bas-reliefs, etc. 

The MonU de Oavbert, to the S. of Abbeville, were the site of an 
immense Roman camp, capable of accommodating 14 legions, no trace of 
which, however, now remains.

ville to Amiens, and skirts the ramparts on the S.E. side of the town, near 
St. Gilles. — ■ 8 M. St. Biquier (ffdtel de VAnge-Oabriel)^ an ancient town, 
was formerly highly celebrated for its abbey, which was founded towards 
the end of the 4th cent, and enjoyed the special favour of Dagobert, Oharle- 
magne, and Hugh Capet. It has, however, never recovered from its 
frequent destruction at the hands of Normans, Burgundians, French, Ger- 
mans, and English. In 1536 a determined attack on the town by the 
troops of Charles V. wa« "Ailorously repulsed, chiefly through the bravery 
of the women, who mingled with the soldiers on the walls, encouraging 
them to resist. One heroine, named Becqu^toille, is said to have captured 
a hostile flag with her own hands. The abbey was rebuilt after a fire 
in the 18th cent. ; it is now occupied by a seminary and is comparatively un- 
interesting. The adjoining *(7AtircA of St. Riquier is, however, a most notable 
example of Gothic architecture in the 15th and 16th centuries. The facade 
and W. tower are lavishly adorned with sculpture , though the soft nature 
of the stone has unfortunately withstood the ravages of the weather very 
poorly. The vaulting of the interior deserves special notice, as do also 
some of the statues, the fonts, the bas-reliefs on the walls, the choir-stalls, 
and the high-altar , with a large wooden statue of Christ by Girardon. 
The Salle de la Tr^sorerie is adorned with ten frescoes from the life of 
St. Biquier, with inscriptions in old French, and with a kind of Dance 
of Death, entitled 'the Three Dead and the Three Living'. The treasury 
is still rich.

near the theatre. 

Arrcaj formerly fortified, with 26,150 inhab., situated on the 
right bank of the Scarpe, the ancient capital of Artois^ is now the 
chief town of the DSpartement du PaS'-de^CalaiSy and the seat of a 
bishop. Its grain-trade is very considerable. 

Arras was the capital of the Gallic tribe of the Airebates, under the 
name of Nemetacum or Nemetocenna. It seems to have been famous for its 
woollen cloth as early as the 4th cent., the madder of which grows luxur- 
iantly in the neighbourhood, providing an excellent dye-material. In the 
middle ages the tapestry-hangings of Arras had a high reputation , and 
many of them are still preserved, especially in England, where the name 
of the town itself was used as their common name. The manufacture 
has long been extinct. The town followed the fortunes of the Pays d^Artois, 
of which it was the capital, passing by marriage from the house of France 
to Burgundy, Flanders, Bur^ndy again, Germany, and Spain. After 
the battle of Agincourt (141$ the English and French signed the treaty 
of peace at Arras. It was many times captured and recaptured in the 
wars between France and Burgundy and Germany, and in 1477 Louis XI. 
punished its repugnance to the French yoke with great severity, changing 
the name of the town to *Franchise\ The Peace of Arras, in 1482, 
marks an epoch in French history, determining the N. frontier of France 
at the expense of the feudal state of Burgundy. Arras was finally incor- 
porated with France in 1640. — Arras was the birthplace of Maximilicn 
Robespierre (i75S-94) and his younger brother Joseph (1763-94), and of 
Joseph Lebon, originally a cur^, who organized the ^Terror^ in Arras and 
distinguished himself by his cruelties. 

The Station^ in the new quarter that has sprung up since the de- 
molition of the fortifications, stands at one end of a broad thorough- 
fare traversing the town under various names (Rue Gambetta, Rue 
Emestale, Rue St. Anbert, etc.). On the left side of the Rue Gam- 
betta rises the pretty modern Tour des Ursutinea^ the spire of which 
was overthrown by a storm in 1876. The tower, which is in the 
Transition style, was built in imitation of the smaller tower of La 
Ste. Ghandelle, which formerly adorned the Petite Place. We reach 
the latter Place and the H6tel de Ville by the Rue St. Gery, which 
leads to the right a little farther on. 

The Petite Place and the neighbouring Orande Place are curious 
relics of the period of Spanish domination, in the 17th century. 
Both are surrounded with uniformly built houses, with arcades 
below, supported by monolithic sandstone columns, and curious 
gables above. No. 49, Grande Place, dates from the 14th century. 
Beneath the Grande Place and other parts of the town are huge sub- 
terranean magazines and cellars, originally quarries and known as 
'boves'. 

The *H6tel de Ville, built in the 16th cent, by Jacques Car on 
and restored in the 19th cent., is one of the handsomest in the N. 
of France, with a fine Gothic facade, rising \i^q.w ^^-^^wvtOcvfca. ^t

In the same building are preserved the Library (40,000 vols. ; 1100 MSS.) 
and the Archives D^tartementales. 

The Cathedral, at the N.E. angle of the abbey-bnlldings, was 
built in 1755-1833 to succeed the old abbey-church. It contains 
some good paintings, including a Descent ^om the Cross and an 
Entombment, attributed respectively to Rubens and Van Dyck (both 
in the ambulatory of the choir), and three small trlptychs and a 
fine Head of Christ in the N. transept. In the S. transept is a St. 
Bernard supplicating inspiration from heaven , by Yan Thulden. 
The high-altar is adorned with a bas-relief in gilded bronze. One 
of the chapels contains a Madonna by Corot, and two modern 
monuments of bishops. 

The first street to the left of the garden of St. Yaast crosses the 
busy Rue St. Aubert , near the Hdpital 8t, Jean fto the right), in 
front of which is a Statue of Abhi Halluin (1820-95), distinguished 
for his charity. The street leads on to the barracks, arsenal, etc. 
To the left, before the arsenal, the Rue de T Arsenal leads to the 
modem Romanesque church of Notre Dame dee Ardents, with a fine 
pulpit and the tomb of Mgr. Lequette, by Louis-Noel, — The streets 
running parallel with the barracks lead to the Boulevard Crespel 
and to the Promenades, with their fine trees. Beyond these is the 
Citadel, constructed by Vauban in 1670-74, sumamed *La Belle- 
Inutile*, and now partly dismantled. — In the Rue d' Amiens, beyond 
the barracks, is the elegant Oiapelle des Dames du 8t. Sacrement, 
a modem construction in the Flamboyant style, by Grigny. — The 
Rue d* Amiens leads hence back to the Rue St. Aubert ; the new 
boulevards next the promenades bring us direct to the station. 

A branch -railway runs from Arras to (22V2 M.) Doullens (p. 24). —

the strong eaatle of Guinea. The house for Francis (near Ardres) was a 
building rather great than costly, as being erected with such materials as 
could be gotten in haste; his nrst intention being to lodge in a rich 
pavilion or cloth of gold, until the wind threw it down.^

About 3Vs M. to the 8. of Fruges, and as far to the N.W. of the sta- 
tion of Blangy-sur-Temoise (p. 11), lies Aginoourt or Azincourt, famous 
for the victory won by Henry V. over the French, on Oct. 25th, 1415. Tt« 
English troops numbered about 9000; the French not less than 50,000. 
The following description of the battle is taken from Mr. J. B. Green's 
'History of the English People'. When Henry V.'s *weary and half-starved 
force succeeded in crossing the Somme, it found sixty thousand Frenchmen 
encamped on the field of Agincourt right across its line of march. Their 
position, flanked on either side by woods, but with a front so narrow 
that the dense masses were drawn up thirty men deep, though strong for 
purposes of defence, was ill-suited for attack; and the French leaders, 
warned by the experience of Cr^cy and Poitiers, resolved to await the 
English advance. Henry on the other hand had no choice between attack 
and unconditional surrender. . . The English archers . . . with a great shout 
sprang forward to the attack. The sight of their advance aroused the 
iiery pride of the French; the wise resolve of their leaders was forgotten, 
and me dense mass of men-at-arms plunged heavily forward through 
miry ground on the English front. But at the first sign of movement 
Henry had halted his line, and fixing in the ground the sharpened stakes 
with which each man was furnished his archers poured their fatal arrow - 
flights into the hostile ranks. The carnage was terrible, for though the 
desperate charges of the French knighthood at last drove the English 
archers to the neighbouring woods, from the skirt of these woods they 
were still able to pour their shot into the enemy's flanks, while Henry 
with the men-at-arms around him flung himself on the French line. . . . 
The enemy was at last broken, and the defeat of the main body of the 
French was followed by the rout of their reserve. The triumph was more 
complete, as the odds were even greater than at Grdcy. Eleven thousand 
Frenchmen lay dead on the field, and more than a hundred princes and 
great lords were among the fallen'. 

Beyond three small stations we reach (59V2 M.) Anvin, the 
junction of the line to Boulogne (p. 11), where the narrow-gauge 
line ends. 62 V2 M. Wavrans.

being 181 ft., the latter 210 ft. in height, hut like the central spire 
they are too small for the edifice. The principal W. Portal, one of 
the finest parts of the bnilding, was completed towards the end of 
the 14th century. 

The *Fa9adb contains three lofty recessed porches, richly adorned 
with reliefs and statues. In the tympanum above the door of tiie central 
porch is a relief of the Last Judgment; 150 statues in the vaulting 
represent tbe celestial hierarchy, wMle the large statues on each side are 
the Apostles and other holy personages. The doors of this central porch 
are separated by the ''Beau Dieu cTAmiens'', an admirable figure of the 
Saviour, holding the Gospels in his left hand and bestowing a blessing 
with his right, while he tramples under foot a lion and a dragon. At the 
sides are the Wise and the Foolish Virgins, and beneath is a double row of 
medallions representing the virtues and the vices, different handicrafts, etc. 
— The right porch is ornamented in a similar way, above the doors, the 
Entombment and the Assumption of the Virgin, beneath , a figure of the 
Virgin, and still lower, Adam and Eve ; at the sides, the Annunciation, the 
Visitation, and the Presentation, the Queen of Sheba, Solomon, the Magi, etc. 
The medallions below represent scenes from the life of the Virgin. — 
The left porch is dedicated to St. Firmin, the apostle of Picardy. In the 
tympanum, the Invention and Glorification of the relics of the saint ^ between 
the doors, a figure of St. Firmin; at the sides, other saints of the district. 
The medallions represent the signs of the zodiac and employments suitable 
for each season. — The portals are surmounted by beautiful gables , on 
the central one of which is a figure of St. Michael. Above are a handsome 
gallery, a row of niches containing twenty-two colossal statues of kings of 
Judah, a magnificent rose-window 38 ft. in diameter, and (at the top) a 
gallery connecting the towers. 

The beautiful *Side Portals are also adorned with numerous fine 
statues. The rose-window above the porch of the S. transept represents a 
'wheel of fortune'. The N. porch is simpler than the others; and this side 
of the church is partly masked by the bishop''s palace and other buildings. 

The *Imtbbiob consists of nave, transept, aisles, and choir, all flanked 
with chapels. The fine nave rises to the very unusual height of 147 ft., being 
surpassed in this respect by the cathedral of Beauvais alone. The vaulting 
is borne by 126 remarkably bold columns, tapering towards the top, so 
that the vaulting seems actually wider than the pavement below. The 
traveller should not neglect to visit the Tri/orium^ which commands a 
good survey of the interior of the church, and ascend thence to the ex- 
ternal galleries and the tower. 

The *MoHumeHti of the two bishops who founded the church, one on 
each side of the nave, are fine works in bronze of the 13th century. The 
wrought-iron screens (18th cent.) of the choir and chapels are worth notice. 
At the entrance to liie choir are large marble statues of St. Vincent de 
Paul and S. Carlo Borromeo, erected in 1755. 

The JSiffh Reliefs in the S. transept, representing scenes from the life 
of St. James the Great, date from the beginning of the 16th century. Above 
are small modem marble bas-reliefs , with the names of members of the 
Gonfr^rie de Kotre Dame du Puy, a society founded for the encouragement 
of literature and art. 

The similar Reliefs in the 1^. transept, of the same period, represent 
the expulsion of the money-changers and other events in the history of 
the Temple at JerusiJem. Adjacent is a stone trough, the former font, which 
appears to date from the ilth century. The tombs of Bishop Sabatier 
(fSth cent.) and Cardinal Hdmard de Denonville (16th cent.) are also in 
this transept. 

The exterior of the choir-screen is adorned with coloured and gilded 
*H%gh Reli^ti representing, on the X. side, the history of John the 6a.'^-V5k%\...

The belfry rises immediately behind the Hdtel de ViUe (PI. E, 3), 
lately enlarged and almost entirely rebuilt. The peace of Amiens

pelled to surrender in a few days (comp. p. 26). 

To the W., before the citadel is reached, lies the Jardin des Planfes 
(PI. £, 2), with a natural history collection.

BeauoaU^ an ancient manufacturing town on the ThSrainj with 
19,900 inhab., is the capital of the D^partem^nt de VOUe and the 
seat of a bishop. Carpets, woollen cloths, military cloth, gold and 
silver lace, buttons, and brushes are among the chief manufactures. 

Beauyais oceuples the site of the ancient capital of the Bellovaci^ sub- 
dued by Offsar. Christianity was introduced here about the middle of the 
3rd cent, by 8t. Luoian, who met a martyr^s death in the neighbourhood. 
Fortified in 1190 by Philip Augustus, the town was able to defy the attack 
of Edward III. in 1346 ; but about 1420 it was placed in the hands of the 
Bngliih by ita bishop, Pierre Cauchon, who afterwards appeared at Rouen 
as the condemner 01^ .loan of Arc. In its gallant resistance to Gharles the 
Bold and his army of 80,000 men in 1472 the women of Beauvais especially 
distinguished themselves by their courage, and one of them, Jeanne Laind 
or *Haohett6* by name, captured with her own hands a hostile banner, 
now preserved in the H6tel de Ville. The event is still annually celebrated 
on the Sun. nearest St. Peter's day (June 26th). 

In coming from the station, we cross the spacious boulevards, 
and keep straight on by the Avenue de la Rtfpublique and the Rue 
de la Manufacture. A little to the left is the Manufactory of Tap- 
estry^ founded in 1664, i.e. only two years after the state-factory 
of Qobelins at Paris, of which it is the only branch. Visitors are 
admitted to the small museum and the workshops (more interest- 
ing) daily, except holidays, 8-12 and 1.30-6 p.m. ; on Sun., however, 

the looms are not working. 

The Beauvais establishment chiefly makes tapestry for furniture, adorned 
with landscapes, flowers, ornamental designs, animals, and pastoral scenes, 
but no historical or mythological subjects. Beauvais tapestry difl^ers from

a Clock of the 16tb cent., which plays sacred music, and two Tapestries 
(16th cent.), probably made at Beauvais. representing the fabulous origin 
of France, from Bonsard''s *La Franciade . Another tapestry of this series, 
one of 1460, and ^ght other of the 17th cent., after Baphaers cartoons, 
are displayed in the transepts. In the left choir-chapel is a modern * Astro- 
nomical Clocks 89 ft. high, 19 ft. broad, and 9 ft. deep ; it is composed of 
90,000 pieces, has 53 dials, and gives 80 distinct indications (apply to the 
sacristan, 1 fr.; on Sat. & Sun. 50 c). 

To the W. of the cathedral is apportion of the original church, 
known as the Ba96€ (Euvre, a Romano-Byzantine structure, referred 
to the 8th or even the 6th century. It contains tapestry of the 15- 
17th centuries. 

The OaUway^ flanked by two towers, resembling pepper-boxes, 
on the S.W. of the Place de la Cath^drale', belongs to the Palais de 
Justice, formerly the bishop's palace. It dates from the 14th cent., 
the palace itself from the 16th, though the foundations of the latter 
are Gallo- Roman work, at one time forming part of the town-walls. 
The fine restored Romanesque tower at the back is now partly 
concealed by trees. — The ancient building, with remains of all old 
Gothic cloister, behind the Basse (Euvre is now occupied by a small 
Musie (open free on Sun. & holidays, 12-4, to strangers on other 
days also^. 

The Mus^e chiefly contains Gallo-Boman'antiquities, with a few paint- 
ings, natural history specimens, and (in the cloister and*garden) some inter- 
esting architeotoral fragments and sculptures. In the second room are a 
Bearded Mercury (stele), a richly carved wooden altar (17th cent.), several 
lieads of statues, wood-carvings, chests, and numerous small antiquities. 

A little to theN. of the cathedral is the Bishop's Palace (1878-82), 
rich in works of art. 

Several quaint Old Houses are to be found in the streets near 
the cathedral ; e.g. in the Rue St. Laurent (Nos. 26 and 27), diverg- 
ing to the W. from the Rue de I'Eyech^, and in the Rue Philippe- 
de-Beaumanoir and Rue St. Paul, on the other side'of the churcli. 
Farther on, adjoining a savings-bank, is a Gothic house, opposite 
which is a comer-turret with a leaden figure of St. Michael, of the 
Gothic period. A few yards farther on we reach the Place Ernest- 
Gerard and the Theatre^ to the left from which lie the Place de THotel- 
de-Ville and St. Etienne. 

A good view of the town is obtained from the Square du Riservoir^ a 
promenade on a hill, 5-7 min. walk from the station, on the other side 
of the Thdrain. — About !/« M. to the N. of the station is a large tree- 
shaded space known as the Jeu de Pawne^ where a band plays in summer 
from 8 to 4 p.m. and tennis-matches take place. The Lycle farther on ad- 
joins a hill on which once lay a Roman amphitheatre. 

The church of the suburb oi Marissel^ to theN.E., has a Romanesque 
tower, a choir of the 12th cent., a nave and portal of the 16th, and a 
magnificent wooden altar-piece of the same date.

being annually visited by numeroiia English , na well as Frenr.b 
rsmilies, Csptuted and destroyed BOTeiaJ tlmeE daring the wars, 
between England and France and afterwards in the rellgloiis wars. 
Dieppe Buffered severely from the plagce in 1668 &nd 1670, and ini 
1694 the citadel and town were reduced to luias by the EngUsb 
fleet returning from an unsuccesBful attack on Brest (p. 219). 

The Gare Maritime (Pi. E, 2} and the Steamboat Quays are oa 
the N. side of the old Avant Port or outer harhonr. To the S.W., 
beyond the Bnisinj Duquesne and Birigny, lies (he Central Stalinti 
(VI, C, 3) ; and to the E., between the Basain Dnqnesne and the 
Enbnrb of Le PolUl (PL E, 3j , inhabited by Eoilora and fishermen 
Haid la be of Venetian origin, are several basina opened In 1887. 
To tbe N. of the Gare Maritime extends the old Vieux Chenal, or 
harbour-entrance; a good view may be obtained from the W. pier, 
iln the opposite clilTa riaea the modern Gotbioehnrcb of IVDira-Dame- 
df-Bfm-8<coun (Pi. F, '2). The Quai Henri IV, on whioh stands 
the CoUige (PL D, 2}, built In the 18th cent. , leads to the W. from 
the Oare Maritime. At ill W. end is tbePoMsonnene, or Fah^Market 
(Pl.D, 2), which presents a busy and animated scene in the morning. 

Along the.N. side of the town, between the sea and the Kue 
Agnado, in wbluh are the prini^ipal hotels, stretohea La Plage (PI. C, 
U, E, 1), a handsome marine park or promenade, ^/g M. long. The 
tall chimneys seen in the Rue Aguado belong to the ext ~ 

Aaeeo Maavfactory' (Pi. 9). 

At llie W. Bilremily of the Plage ia the Caiino or EtnbUasemetit 
<le Bainl (PI. C, 1^, a handsome brii^k and glaas structure replete 
■with every convenience and in'-luding a small theatre (adm., see

used as dressing-rooms, ftom which the bathers descend into th 
uater, accompanied by n gvide-iaifoeur, if necessary. In line westhe 
the scene is very amusing, and novel withal to the English vlsitoi

On a predpitous wbito cliff at the W. eitremity of the Plage rises 
the picturesquB CaalU (Fl.B, 1, 3) , with its msssive walls, towere, 
and bastions, arented in 1436 «a a defenre against the Engliah. lu 

11694, however, it va unable to resist the cannonade of the English 
flaet is- 30)- The castle is now used aa harracka, and visitors are 
not allowed to pass through it to the fine points of liew on the 
adjoining clifFs. These, however, may be reached by other loates, 
We regain the town by the Rue de la Earce, which is continued 
to the E., to the Quai Henri IV, by the Grande Kue. 
The church of St. Eemy (PI. B ; C, 2). not far from the castle, 
in a mixed style of the 16th and 17th cent., contains huge round 
columns, of which those in the choir have elaborately caived cap- 
itals. In the Lady Chapel, and at the entrance to the sacristy, on the 
left of the choir, are some good Eculptures. The organ-caee dates 
from the 18th ceot. ; the stained glass (by Luason) is modern. 
The chorch of SI. JacsuM (PI. 4; C, D, 3), a little farther on, 
U an interesting florid Gothic edifice, dating from the IS'lbth cent, 
and possessing all that 'lace-like beauty of detail and elaborate 
tlnUb, which charms in spite of soberer reason, that tells Qs It is 
not in stone that such vagaries should be attempted' (Fergusaon), 
The 11th cent, porta] la flanked with turrets, adorned with statues 
in niches ; the W. tower dates fVom the 16th century. The Inteiior 
is fine. The bossea of the vauUs of the choir and several of tiie 
chapels are si^ulptured; and the churi'h also contains other rich 
carved work in the Pointed and Uenalssance styles , surh as the 
balustrade of the choir , the ecreen of the flrst chapel on the right 
(enclosing a modem Holy Sepulchre], the screens of some of the 
other chapels, and the flue arches to the left of the choir. The chief 
attraction of the Interior is. however, the Lady Chapel, riohly 
adorned with sculptures and modern stained glass by Lusson, re- 
prflseniing the Death and Coronation of the Virgin, the Vision of 
Pope Pius v., the Triumpli of Don Juan after Lepanto, the Captare 
^m of Le Pallet by Louie XI. in 1443, and the ptocessloa which

men, under the Due de Mayenne. The imposing ruin of the 
Chdteau is a favourite resort of visitors from Dieppe. Founded 
in the 11th cent, on the border of Normandy by a Seigneur 
d' Arques, this castle changed hands frequently during the wars 
which raged in this district ; the English held it from 1419 until 
1449, when it finally passed to France. The castle, which did not 
become a ruin till the 18th cent., is now public property and always 
open to visitors. Although occupying a secure position on the 
summit of a hill, this stronghold was farther protected by a moat 
and two walls , the first of which is flanked by four massive towers 
of brick and stone, built by Francis I. The donjon is perhaps the 
most ancient part. — The Church of Arques , a handsome Gothic 
building of the 16th cent., contains a fine Renaissance rood-loft, old

Rouen, formerly the capital of Normandy , now that of the De- 
partment of the Seine-Irhf^rieurej and the seat of an archbishop, 
with 118,220 Inhab., is a very important cotton - manufacturing 
place, sometimes not very aptly called the Manchester of France. 
It is the richest of French cities in mediaeval architecture, though 
the construction within the last forty years of handsome streets like 
those of Paris has swept away most of the quaint old houses, that 
abounded In the former crooked and picturesque but not very healthy 
streets. The old walls of the town, which bade defiance to Henry V. 
of England in 1415 and to Henri IV of France in 1592, have been 
converted into boulevards planted with trees. 

Ronen is the Rotomagus of the Romans. The Kormans, under Hasting 
(some say Ogier the Dane), penetrated thus far in 841, in their first in- 
vasion of France; and returning in 876 under Rollo. made themselves masters 
of the district and established a duchy here in 912. This was the nucleus 
of the duchy of Kormandy, which sent forth William the Conqueror in 
1066. The last Duke of Kormandy was King John of England, who mur- 
^ed his nephew, Arthur of Brittany, in the castle of Rouen, and was 
dispossessed by Philip Augustus in 1204. Rouen was retaken by the Eng- 
^■A in 1419, and retained until 1449. In 1431 it was the scene of the con- 
^Qmnation and burning of Joan of Arc (see p. 60). The town suffered 
*^erely in the later religious wars ; Catholics and Calvinists alternately 
2^d the tipper hand and rivalled each other in cruelty. In 1692 the 
^^Wnsaden suecessfully resisted Henri IV ; but they opened tho^vc ^^^\ft.% *v>^

yuara later, for the Cour 4t iEchigvier, the supreme tribunal (Parle- 
nieut) of N'ormandy, and its facade is very richly ornamented. The 
aesiies are now held here. The iaTish decorations of the interior 
ate almost entirely modern. The Sallt dea Aasiiei has a fine cassatled

^Cathedral) or Notre-Dame (PI. D, 3), one of the grandest 
Gothic edifices in Normandy, although remarkably unsymmetrical 
in plan. The principal parts date from 1270-80. The central portal 
(if the* W,FaQade was erected hy Cardinal d'Amhoise, the favourite 
minister of Louis XII., at the heginning of the 16th cent. , and is 
profusely decorated in the florid style. The sculptures over the 
chief entrance, of no great merit, represent the Genealogy of Christ, 
-with the Beheading of John the Baptist on the left, and the Virgin 
and saints on the right. The two unfinished towers of the facade are 
of unequal height. The *Tour de Beurre^ the loftier and more 
beautiful , 252 ft in height, derives its name from having been 
erected with the money paid for indulgences to eat butter during 
Lent. The other, the TourSt Romain, is 245ft. high; with the ex- 
ception of the highest story, it dates from the 12th cent, and is thus 
the oldest part of the whole building. The beautiful Central Tower, 
over the transept, is surmounted by an incongruous iron spire (since 
a fire in 1822), which reaches the height of 465 ft. 

The two side-portals, dating from the 15th cent., are df great 
interest, especially that on the N., called the ^Portail des lkbraire9 
from the book-stalls that once occupied the court The seilptures 
on the tympanum (unfinished) represent the Resurrection and the 
Last Judgment, those on the archlvolt, saints and an|els, the 
others, grotesque subjects. The S. portal is known as the Portail de 
la Calende, from a brotherhood that used to assemble here on the 
'Calends' or first day of each month. The sculptures above the en- 
trance represent scenes from the Passion ; the others correspond to 
those of ike N. portal. 

The IvnuoB of the church (447 ft. in length; transept 177 ft. in length; 
nave and aisles 106ft. in width; 92 ft. in height) is in the early-Pointed 
style, and possesses three fine rose-windows in the nave and transepts. 
The choir has doable aisles, and the transepts are divided into middle 
and side aisles by columns and arches of the same design as those in the 
nave. The axis of the church slopes a little towards the £. end. 'Above 
the pillars and arches of the nave runs another line of both in place of 
a triforium} above this again are two galleries one above the other; and 
higher yet, and crowning all, is seen the clerestory with its windows, so 
that there are five horizontal divisions in the walls of the nave, which 
Las no parallel in England.* (Winkler^s ^French Cathedrals"). Part of the 
Atained glass dates from the 13th century. The first chapel on the right, 
in the Tour de Beurre, contains a large altar-piece, representing the Cru- 
cifixion and the Martyrdom of St. Stephen, and also several monuments of 
the 19th and 14th centuries. The last chapel on the S. side of the nave 
contains the tomb of Rollo (d. 927), first Duke of Kormandy, and the cor- 
reiponding ehapel on the K. side that of his son William Longtu-Epif. 
(d. 949). From the K. transept a beautiful Gothic staircase, with open 
tracery, afceads to the chapter-library (p. 62). The modern pulpit in the 
nave and the organ-case (it-tSth cent.) sbould be noticed. 

In front of the Choir is a poor rood-loft of the 18th century., __ 

screeaa of the ehapels are closed except during service (apiply to the 
saertataat fee). In the 8. ambulatory is an ancient mutilated figure in lime- 
atone, 7 ft. In height, of Richard Cotur-de-Uon (d. 1199), discovered V&.^SSS^\

The Mtinicipai Library (adm. daily, 10-6], in tlio Imildlng at Mib 
back of tlie Masdc, contains 132,000 printod liookg, 3B00 MSS., STIX) 
niBdals and coins, and about MOO portraits of eminent Notmans. 

At ttie angle of the Mus^e a^oining the Kae Tbiers is ths Jtfon-

Behind St. Laurent is the chuich of St. Oodard (Fl. U,2), daUng 
partly from the IBth oentiiry. The na?e and aisles of this clmreh are 
oT BQcal size and iinviulted; the foTiner tenclnateE in an apse of 
three sides. Most of the fine stained glass is either modem or 
restOTed. The chapels to the right and left of the choir each contain 
a good window of the 16lh century. The cboit itself la decorated 
with mural psintinga by Le HiJnalT, and eontaina a gilded canopj'. 

If the afternoon is advauced, visitors ahonld go direct ftoin Uii)

1 M. aboie Roaeni is a fsTourite leeort for the sake of the vIbit, the 
cihuroh, and the montinient to Joan of Am. The expedition is best 
made by meane of the steamer and (lable-Taitwa; [sea above), 'which 
lands traTBlleiB near the Dhurnh and the monument. The road, by 
which we may return, passes to the right of the chnroh. 

The Cburch ar BonflB(;o<iBS, a pilgrim-resort, bnllt in 1840-42 
in the pointed style of the 13th font., with oiodem stained gUai in 
a contemporary stylo, is richly decorated in the interior with poly- 
i^hrome palntingi. The gilded bronze altar, the statues in the sanctn- 
ary, the ehoir-fltallB, pavement, pnlpit, and organ are noteworthy. 

The MoNUUGNT or Joan of Arc, perhaps more i eommereial 
apecnlation [adm. 26 c; closed 12-1.30) than a work of patrlotlBm, 
consists mainly of three elegant little Renaissance buildings, by 
Llsch, connected by * platform. The principal chapel, with a dome 
Bunnonnted by t. St. Miehatl, encloses a statue at Joan of Are, hy 
Itarrias ; the other two have statues of SS. Catharint and Jtfonrarcl 
(by Pdpln and Verlot), whose yoicea are supposed to have flrtt in- 
spired Joan. 

The 'Vic'u! from the platform embraces the city , the oourae of 
the rtverformany miles above ami below Rouen, and in the distance 
the verdant hills of Normandy.

14 M. Blbeuf (Cfrand H6tel^ Place de rH6tel-de-Ville), a cloth-manu- 
facturing town with 20,640 inhab., on the left bank of the Seine. The 
churches of JSi. Jeon^ near the Place de la Mairie, and Bt. ICtienne, about 
>/4 M. to the 8.W., both dating from the Renaissance period, contain good 
stained glass of the 14-16th centuries. The Oare d'Elbeuf-St-Aubin (p. 42)

d'Anet^ i K. to the 8.E., was built in 1648-1652 for Diana of Poitiers by 
Philibert Delorme at the command of Henry II. Only a few remains of 
the original building are preserved, including the portal, one wing forming 
the present chftteau, and the chapel, which still retains some sculptures

Ffeamp is a, town with 14,650 Inhali., eiCaated. like mosl of tlie 
otber towns and viUages on thle coast, in B BmaJI Tslley rumiiDg 
inland from the sea. The S. end of the town is about 1'/* M, from 
the little harbour st the N. estremity of the valley. According to 
Ihe legend the name ie derived from Firua Campus. 'Bold of the 
Ag-tree'. from Che fact that the sea washed up on the coast here tb« 
trunk of a fig-tree in which Joseph of Arimathea had placed the 
Freclona Blood (see below). Ita position on the English channel 
■nd its possession of a tolerable harbour gave Fecamp i certain im- 
portance in the early history of Normandy and in the wars between 
England and France; and its ancient Benedictine abbey lent it 
another elaliu to consideration. 

The C^tircft of St. Etiennr. which is seen to the left of the sta- 
tion, dates from the 16th century. The S. portal ip fine \ the W. tower 
is nioderp. The Interior has undergone restoration, and has been 
embeUished with modem stained glass and paintings. 

From the Place Thiers, which occupies the centre of the town, 
we foHow the Hue Alexandre Legros to the abbey. The monastery of 
Ffcimp, founded by Duke Riuhard the Fearless about 990, is the 
only one of the famous monastedes nf Normandy that stood to the 
N.K of the Seine. The Abbey ChuTch, a most interesting relic of 
the ll-1Gth cent,, conceals an interior of great beaoty and gnxo 
under a loroewhat nnattractiye exterior. The central tower la, how- 
ever, stately thongh simple, and on the S. side Is a Sne portal of 
the 14th century.

The remaine of the abbey, adjoining the N. side of the charch,

some SaiU do Abbfg, approaahed by a fine staircase, and Che Afuice, 
which contains a small collection ol sculptures, furniture, curios- 
ities, and works of art, some dating from the ancient abbey. 

The Bathing Eslabliiilttnent Is situated on the broad shingly 
beacb, at some distance from the harbour and also from the casino, 
which stands near the cli(F, to the left. In front of the beach are a 
terrace and a narri age-road, and above are situated several pretty 
chalets for summer- visitors. The adjoining roads are , however, 
unattractive and the surroundings are somewhat bleak and bare. — 
The Harbour, much improved since 1880, admits ships drawing 
20 ft, at alt states of the tide, FS<iamp is one of the chief stations 
in Fiance for deep-sea dshing-boats, and it also carries on trade in

there are almost no other walks in the neighbourhood. At low wa-

College of E^glisll Benedictines (Rue St. Benoit), founded in 1660 for the 
education of English priests, still has about 100 students. In 1610 an Eng- 
lish translation of the Old Testament for Boman Catholics was published 
at Douai; and the English Roman Catholic version of the Scriptures, in- 
cluding ihe New Testament translated at Rheims in 1582, is generally 
known as the Douai or Douay Bible. — Douai is the birthplace of Jean 
de Bologne or de Douai (1624-1602), the sculptor, and of Jean Bellegambe 
(d. ca. 1540), the painter, sumamed ^Haitre des Couleurs\ 

The street leading to the W. from the station brings us to the 
handsome Place Camot, the principal promenade, near which is the 
Mus^e (p. 76). Thence the Rue St. Jacques runs S.W. to the 
Place d'Armes (see below). 

The church of St. Pierre, to the right, halfway between the two 
'Places', rebuilt in the 18th cent., is remarkable only for its huge 
tower, dating from the 16th cent., and occupying the whole breadth 
of the facade. It contains several paintings of the French school. 

— Near this church , Rue du Clocher-St-Pierre 19 , is the Maison 
des Remy, a handsome Renaissance house of the 17th century. 

The church of Notre-Dame, near the fortifications , to the S.E., 
reached directly by the street to the S. of St. Pierre, contains the 
celebrated * Altar-piece ofAnchin, painted in 1620 by J. Bellegambe 
(see above). Visitors are admitted to the sacristy, where the paint- 
ing hangs, before 12.30 and after 2 p.m. 

The work consists of nine oaken panels, representing, on the outside, 
Christ enthroned between the Madonna, the donor (who is presented by 
his patron , St. Charlemagne), and some monks of Anchin , headed by 
St. Benedict \ on the five interior panels the Trinity is seen surrounded by 
members of the Church Triumphant (254 figures). — At the entrance to the 
sacristy is a curious mystical representation of the Virgin, of the 15th century. 

In the garden in front of the church is a bronze statue of Marce- 
Une Desbordes •'Valmore (1786-1859), the poetess, by Houssin, and 
on the far side the Hospital (17th cent.), with a sculptured pediment 
by Bra. — Farther on is the Porte de Valenciennes, dating from the 
15th cent., whence we return by the Rue de Valenciennes to the 
centre of the town and the Place d^Armes, 

The •H6tbl db Villb, in this square, the most notable edifice 
in the town, is a fine monument of Gothic architecture, partly of 
the 15th century. Above it rises a five-storied Belfry, 130 ft. high, 
the upper part of which is crenelated and flanked with turrets, and 
surmounted by a spire with a lion bearing the banner of Flanders. 
The interior court, the fine Gothic chapel, the Salle des Fetes, the 
Salle de la Rotonde, and the Salon Blanc may be inspected. 

The Rue de la Mairie leads hence to the Place Thiers, with the 
monument to the Illustrations de Douai^ or famous natives of Douai. 

— No. 20, and several other houses in the Rue des Foulons, to the 
left of the Place, are quaint specimens of mediaeval architecture. 

On the other side of the Scarpe, beyond the Place Thiers, is the 
Jardin dts Plantes, a pleasant promenade, in which is a Mus6e Com- 
mereial (adm. Thurs. and Sun., 12 to 4 or 6), Tck \X!l<6\^1\.^1.^^X^s. 
Jardin des Plantes is the church of St. Jacques, Wife Vw\.ftx«i%\S.\\%^^»^-

U-Bon [PL E, 5, 6), in wliioh riEes a Monument to Ptatevr [1822- 
90), by A. GordhTiDlai, eTertedin 1896. At the end of the Place 1b { 
tbe cbntch o( SI. Michel (PI. E, B), in & modani Romanesque stylBi | 
«Uh an interior decorated with paintinga from the lita of tie S! ' 
The bailding to the left is tbe Pataia dc Facuttei (PI. F, 5), acc< 
Tiiodating the fnoulHes of medicine, law, anrl literature of the Utii- I 
VBrsily of Lille. Farther ou, to the rigbt, are the Imtitvt Indvilriel 
and the Jnltiful da Sclenea NalUTtlUt; to tbe left, the liomaneEque 
Protatant Cfiwrcft, the Vniiieriity Library, the Synagogue, etu. 

The Rne Jean-Birt leads E. past these modern buildings and 
joins tbe end ot tbe Boulevard de )a Libertis, opposite the Eeole Na- 
llonaU da Arti el Millers (PI. G, 5), & monumental edifice, complet- 
ed Iti 1898. Adjoining, in thEBoplBYird LodSs XIV, is the /nrtid- ' 
PaiUuT, reaemhllng that in Paris. 

The BoulevudPaptn, tunning to the N, before tbe Ecole, brings 
us te the Parte de Forie [PI. F, 6), formerly included in the old 
TartiflcationG. Thegate was built in 1685-95 in tbe form of a triumphal 
arch in coromemoriUon of the union of French Flanders with France. 
Tbe SCTlpturea were restored and the formerly plain inner fftjaila 
emIielUahed in 1890-9o. ___^_^ 

The Hut dt Parii [PI. F, 4, 5] leads hence, to the N., to tbe centre 
of the old town, passing close to St. Maurice {^see bcio") and neu 
tbe rsilw ay-station. To the E. from the Porto de Paris are the Square 
Iluanlt, with the old Hottl du Oinie, snd the old Hdpital of St. Sa- 
veuT (PI. 0, 6). Near tbe liller are tbe ruins of the chnieh of 
St. Sauyenr, burned in 1896, and the Nohu Tour, a keep of tht! 
15th cent,, iujared by the same lire. 

The church of 'St. Maurice (PL P, 1), to which the Kue St. Sau- 
teiir audits continuations lead, ia built in tbe Flamboyant atyle and 
has been recently restored. Above the W. portui, which has been 
rebnllt, rises a fine stone open-work spire. When the W. door ia 
closed, visitors enter by a door to the tight of the choir. T-Tie interior 
is dlsttngnished by the width of the nave and the double aisles, which 
■re all of tbe same height, by the lightness of its columns, and by 
it* richness of etracl. The modern high-altar is in the Qolbic style. 

The Rue Eiquennoiie (PI. E, 3). running N.W. from the Grande 
Place and continued by tbe broad Hue Royale, prolongs the main 
•itary of tratfle in the <jd town.

toNamwr. ST. QUENTIN. 15, Route, 105 

Spaniarda , with their Engliah. Qerman , and Flemiali auxiliaries, under 
the Duke of Savoy, sign^ly defeated the French under Coligny and the 
Constable Montmorency near St. Quentin. The battle was fought on St. 
I^awrence^s day, and it was in gratitude for this victory that Philip II. 
vowed the erection of the Escurial. On the 19th Jan., 1871, the French 
*Arm^e du Kord* under Faidherbe was defeated near St. Quentin by the 
Prussians under General Goeben. 

Quitting the Station (VI, B, 6), we cross the Somme and the Canal 
de St. Qnentin and enter the town. In front of us is the Place duHuit- 
Octobre (PI. B, 4), embellished with a handsome Monument, by Bar- 
rias, symbolizing the snccessftU defence of the town against the first 
attack of the Germans on Oct. 8th, 1870. 

The Rne dlsle leads thence to the Place de rH6tel-de-yilIe, in 
which rises the *Monument of the Siege of 7557, with sculptures by 
C. Theunissen (1897). On the N. side of the Place is the *H6tel de 
Ville (PI. B, 3j, a fine Gothic building of the 14th and 16th cent, 
resembling the Belgian town-halls of the same period. The facade 
consists of an arcade of seven pointed arches, above which are nine 
fine windows in the Flamboyant style, separated by niches originally 
intended for statnes and surmounted by a tasteful balustrade and 
three gables ornamented with rosettes. The chief point of interest 
in the interior is the Salle du Conseil, the roof of which rests upon 
two circular wooden vaults. The large and elaborate chimney-piece 
presents a curious mixture of the Gothic and the Renaissance styles. 

The *Church of St, Quentin (PI. B, 0, 3), a little to the E. of 
the H6tel de Ville, is a fine example of French Gothic of the 12-16th 
cent., but is unfortunately much masked by other buildings. It has 
double transepts, and the nave is 370 ft. long and 130 ft. high. The 
W. portal, which was formerly adorned with statues, is one of the 
oldest parts of the church. 

Intxriob. The nave, completed in 145G, the W. transept, and the 
choir are embellished with splendid stained glass and a gracefm triforium. 
Many of the chapels date from the 14-l5th cent., and, like the choir, are 
adurned with polychrome painting. Beside the 1st chapel on the right is 
a Tree of Jesse in stone (loth cent.) and in the chapel is a small 16th cent, 
altar-piece. In the 2nd chapel is a fresco of the Idth cent, (restored), and 
some of the others contain interesting sculptures. The ''Choir Screen is 
embellished with bas-reliefs (restored in the 19th cent.) referring to the 
history of St. Quentin and his fellow-martyrs, SS. Victoricus and Gentianus, 
all of whom are buried in the crypt. 

In front of the church rises the statue, by Langlet, of Quentin 
Delatour (1704-88), the famous drawer in crayons, who was born at 
St. Quentin. — Another native of St. Quentin, Henri Martin^ the 
historian (1810-83), is commemorated by a statue in ttont of the 
LyeSe (PL B. 2), a handsome building at the end of the Rue du Palais- 
de- Justice. 

At No. 22, Rue Antoine - L^cuyer , to the right from Martin's 
statue, is the Musie lAeuyer (PI. B, 2), containing a rich collection 
of antiquities and works of art, including a series of cia^QTAV] 
Delatour (see above). The Musfie is open fre^ ouT\iUia. &^T3iXi.^*V^

to Namur. LAON. i5. BouU. 109 

— Laon WM the birthplace of the Abh^ Marquette, who discovered the 
HiBBisflippi in 1078, and of Marshal S^rarier (see below). 

The carriage-road ascends in carves to the left from the end of 
the avenne opposite the /Station (PI. D, 1); hnt pedestrians may 
mount directly to the (1/4 hr.) beginning of the town, by means of a 
stairway with 263 steps, interrupted occasionally by inclined planes. 
A little farther on we turn to the left into the Rue du Bourg, which 
leads to the cathedral. 

On the right side of the street is the public Library (open daily 
1 to 4 or 5, except Sun..& holidays'), a short distance beyond which 
is the Place de rH6tel-de-Ville (PI. 0, 1), embellished with a bronze 
Statue of Marshal SSrurier (1742-1819), by Doublemard. 

The Rue da Bourg, continued by the Rue GhUelaine, leads to the 

church of *NoTaB-DAMB (PI. D,2), still called the Cathedralj though 

the bishopric of Laon was suppressed at the Revolution. A church 

existed on this flue site at the beginning of the 12th cent., but it was 

burned down in 1112, and the present building, one of the most 

interesting churches in the N. of France, dates Arom the 12-14th 

centuries. It has been thoroughly restored by E. Boeswilwald (d. 1896). 

The length of the church (outside measurement) is 397 ft, the breadth 

across the nave is 67 ft, across the transepts 178 ft. ; the vaulting is 

78 ft. high. The characteristic feature of this church is its fine group 

of lofty towers and spires. The ^Fa^ade^ a masterpiece of pure Gothic, 

is flanked by two bold and graceful towers, 180 ft high, which 

were originally surmounted by spires. The lower part of these 

towers is square, the upper octagonal, while above the buttresses at 

the angles rise belfries of two stories, adorned on the second story 

with figures of oxen, in memory of the animals who dragged the 

stones from the plain to the site of the building. It was originally 

intended to erect two similar towers at each end of the transepts, 

but only two of these have been completed (190 ft high). The 

square lantern-tower above the crossing, 130 ft. high, is now crowned 

by a low pyramidal roof instead of the original tall spire. 

The Interiob vies in interest with the exterior. The transepts are also 
divided into nave and aisles, which, like those of the nave itself, are 
separated by substantial cylindrical columns, from the capitals of which (all 
sculptured differently) slender columns rise to the vaulting. The aisles 
are furnished with lofty galleries beneath the triforium; the chapels at 
the sides were added in the 18-14th cent., but the screens at the entrances, 
filled into the arcades of the former windows, date from the 16-17tti cent- 
uries. At the end of each transept is an andent chapel of two stories. 
The E. end of the choir, pierced by a rose-window and three other win- 
dows, is square, as in English cathedrals, a form which frequently recurs 
in the churches of this diocese and is said to be due to the influence of 
an Englishmui who held the see in the early part of the 12th century. 
There are rose-windows also above the W. and N. portals, but not above 
the 8. portal. The stained glass in the rose-windows and in the windows 
on the 8. aide is good. The carved wooden pulpit dates from the Renaissance. 

The PdSaiB de Justice (PL D, 2), to the left of the choir, [was 
formerly the bishop's palace (13th cent). It reta\iv% te^^ t^xhwv^v^ 
)f a Gothic eloiflter.

antiquities discoTsred in the nelgbhourhaod (mosaic of Orpbeus ami 
the animals, of the 2nd cent. A.D.), small bronzes, antique vasee, 
and some ancient and modern paintings. The mathle BtalQe of 
Gahrielle d'Eatr^ea (d, 1500}, mistress of Henri [V, is noteworthy. 
From the Prfuncnades to the 8. of the Mnsfle a charming •View 
Is ohtained of the opposite side of the hill of Laon, entirely diffeceiil 
from that commanded by the station. The hill here, with Its steep 
sides, encloses a V-shaped Taliey or ravine, partly wooded and 
partly covered vrith gardens and vineyards, which is known as tlio 
^ce dt St Vincent (PI. B, C, 2). The 13th cent. Gothic gatBw»y 
seen here (Porte d'Ardon ; PI. D, 2) is a relic of the early fortiflo»- 
lions. Farther to the W. is the Frlfeeture (PI. C, D, 2), in the formn 
Abbayu St. Jean. A street leads hence to the Place de rH6tel-de' 
Villa, near which is the Parle dea Chenitelltf (PI. 0, 2), another 
13th cent, gateway (restored in 1895). Other interesting old bnild- 
ings are to be seen in different parts of the lown.

the town, an ancient collegiate church in the Transition style, with two 
transeptal towers, built in the 13th century. In the interior, to the 
right of tbe entrance, ia a tomb in black marbla, with a recumbent 
statue, erroneously described as that of a Sire de Coucy (p. 104). The 
white marble tomb opposite bos a fine statue representing the widow 
ofone of the Sires de Coney, wbo died as an abbess in 1333. A oliapel 
on the S. side of the nave, with a atone screen of tbe Kenaissance 
period, contains an Ecce Homo of the 18th centary. The modern 
pulpit and the ancient ehoir-Etalls deserve notice. 

In the neighbourhood is the Lycf.efVl.'S, 2), a modem building. 
Outside the town on (Ma side, at the S. end of the heights forming

A DiLiOBNCE (l^/i fir.)pUea from Bevin to Roeroi (Sdtel du Commerce) ^ 
. .jrtifled town wltn 2190 inhab., situated on a plateau about 1300 ft. 
above the lea-leyel, 8 M. to the W. It is noted for a brilliant victory 



won by Cond^ over theSpaaiards in 1648, but contains nothing of interest. 
— An omnibuB plies also from Bocroi to Le Tremblois (p. 100). 

The railway erosies the Meuse once more and traverses the isth- 
mus of Revin. A subterranean canal about 1000 yds. long also 
crosses the isthmus, cutting off the circuit of 3 M. made by the river. 

180 M. Fnmaj (H6tel de la Qare), a town with 6280 inhab., is 
situated about 3/4 M. to the N.E. of the station (omn. 25 c), on an 
Of al-shaped peninsula. It contains several important iron-works, 
and in the neighbourhood are the largest slate -quarries in the 
valley. The Church is a handsome modern Gothic erection. 

Beyond Fumay the train enters a tunnel, 600 yds. long, from 
wbleh it emerges on the bank of the river near the town. 183 M. 
ffaybeSf also with slate-quarries. 187 M. Vireux-Molhain is the 
junction of a line to Gharleroi vi& Mariembourg (p. 111). In the dis- 
tance, to the left, appears the picturesque ruined Chdteau des Hierges. 
-*- 189 M. Aubrives. A little farther on the river makes another 
iMnd, ent off by the railway and a partly subterranean canal. We 
appzoaob Qiv et by a tunnel below the citadel. 

194 M. Oivet (Buffet; Grand Hotel d' Angleterre^ new, R. 2-4, 
B. 11/4, dfl. or D. 3^2 &• i^^cl. wine; Mont-d'Or; Ancre)^ with 
7100 inhab., is situated on both banks of the Meuse, about ^2 M. 
to the light of the station. The fortifications were demolished in 
1892^ with the exception of the citadel of Charlemont^ perched on a 
roek 700 ft. bigh, on the W. side, and so called because founded by 
Chailes Y. Givet became French at the close of the 17th century. 
The composer Mihul fl 763-1817) was bom here, and a statue was 
erected to him in 1892 near the station. The best view of the 
piotnresque town is obtained from the bridge uniting it with Oivet^ 
Notre^Dame, the suburb on the right bank. The citadel, which 
commands another fine view, is reached by a rough path ascending 
ftom the S.R. side of the town, or by a carriage-road from the sta- 
tlon, crossing the line and ascending to the N. 

At Fromelennes^ 2V2 M. to the E., is the Trou de Nichet^ a curious 
cavern accessible to visitors. — From Givet an omnibus (1 fr.) plies daily 
to (8 M .) Beauraing, whence a visit may be paid to JBeui-eur-Lesse and the 
grotioea at Rothefert (see p. 114). 

Givet is the last French station. The railway still follows the 
valley of the Meuse. The line to Doische (p. Ill) diverges to the 
left. — The Belgian custom-house is at (199 M.) Heer-Agimont

Verdun, a strongly fortified town with 22,150 inhab., is situatod 
on the Meuse, which divides at this point into several branches. 

Verdon, the Roman Vwodunum. hol^ an imoortant place in earlv Europ- 
ean history, fbr by the Treaty of verdan in 8u the possessions of Charle- 
mi^e were divide among his three grandsons, Lothaire, Lewis the Ger- 
man, and Oharles the Bald (p. xxv), and the French and German members 
of the empire were never again united. The town was early the seat of 
a bishop, and remained a free imperial town until 1662, when it was ta- 
ken by the Freneh, although it was not formally united to France until 
the Peace of Westphalia in 1648, by which Austria gave up the three fam- 
ous bishoprics of Verdun , Toul , and Metz. Verdun was bombarded by 
the Prussians in 1792, and, having surrendered after a few hours, the in- 
habitants accorded an amicable reception to the conquerors, to whom a 
party of young girls made an offering of the bonbons Cdragdes^ for which 
Verdun is notod. The Bevolutionists recovered the town after the battle 
of Valmy, and sent three of these innocent maidens to the scaffold. The 
town was again bombarded by the Germans in 1870, and taken after a gal- 
lant resistance of three weeks. 

The Avenue de la Gare and its prolongations intersect the wholo 
town from N. to S. Beyond the Porte St. Paul are the Palais de 
Justice, on the right, and the large new Colt^ge^ on the left. The 
first street diverging to the left leads to the Forte Chauss^e, a gate- 
way with two crenelated towers (now a military prison), part of 
whleh dates from the 15th centnry. Beyond it is a bridge across the 
Mense. — The main street, to which we return, leads to another 
bridge across the main channel of the river. On the leffc bank is 
the Place Ste. Croix, embellished in 1855 with a bronze statue, by 
Lemaire, of General Chevert (1696-1769), a native of the town, 
distinguished for his capture and defence of Prague (1741-42). — 
The lithlie Library (open Thurs. & Sun., 2-4), on the Quai de la 
Gom^die, to the left before the bridge, contains 35,000 vols, and 
numerous valuable MSS. — In the court of the Hdtel de Ville (17th 
cent.) are four cannons presented to the town by the French Govern- 
ment in memory of its gallant resistance in 1870. The building 
contains a small Muaie (adm. free on Sun.; on Thurs., 1-4, ^2 ^^^O- 
The custodian lives at Rue des Hauts-Flns 7. The attractive Pro- 
menade de la Digue skirts the Mouse. 

The Cathedral, in the upper part of the town, dates from the 
ll-12th cent, but has been much altered in the 14th and 17th, 
especially in the interior. The aisles are now divided f^om the nave 
by semicircular arches. The space beneath the organ in the W. apso 
is occupied by a chapel, and there are also lateral chapels, of which 
the first to the right has line windows, designed by Dldron, and art- 
istic iron railings. The high-altar is placed beneath a gilded canopy, 
resting on marble columns. In the S. transept are a relief d&tlu^ 
from f 666 and a marble statue of Notie Dame di^ N«^^\\?Dk«

army to M^zidres. The railway crosses the river, and immediately 
to the right is seen the Chdteau de BelUime, where Napoleon 111 . 
tnirendered his sword, and where the capitulation of Sedan was 
ligned on Sept. 2nd, 1870. The captured army were detained as 
prisoners for three days on the Peninsula of Iges, formed here hy 
^e Mouse. The bombardment of Sedan was begun by a battery 
posted on the heights of FrSnoia^ to the right. The German army 
took up its position in that direction and still farther to the E., while 
tiie French posted themselves on the heights immediately surround- 
ing Sedan. By the end of the day the French position had been 
turned by the Germans, who had made themselves masters of the 
hnis commanding it on the N.

Sedan, a town with 20,163 inliab., formerly strongly forti- 
fied, is famous for the battle and capitulation of Sept. Ist and 
2nd, 1870 (see p. 130). Of no great antiquity, the town at one 
time belonged to the Dukes of Bouillon (p. 131), and the revolt of one 
of these noblemen in 1591 led to the siege and capture of Sedan by 
Henri IV. Sedan is well and regularly built, and carries on a pros- 
perous manufacture of fine cloth; but it is uninteresting to the 
stranger. Within recent years the appearance of the town has under- 
gone a remarkable change. The fortifications have been removed, 
and their place is largely taken by handsome houses. 

From the station, which has been brought farther to the S.E., 
near the Mouse, the Avenue Philoppoteaux, crossing the river and 
traversing the new suburb, leads to the Place d' Alsace-Lorraine, 
at the S. extremity of the town, in which are situated the War 
Monument for 1870, the ColUge, and the Etahlissement Crusayy 
embracing an asylum and a small Mus^e (adm. on application). 
Thence the Avenue du College leads to the Place d'Armes, in 
which rises the Parish Church. Beyond the church is the Donjon, 
of the 15ih cent, the only relic of the ancient Castle. The Avenue du 
GoUdgeis continued by the Rue Gamhetta or Grande Rue, which ends 
at the Place Turenne, embellished with a bronze statue, by Goix, of 
Mofthal Tuirenne, erected in 1823. The marshal (1611-75), bom 
at Sedan, was the son of Henri de la Tour-d'Auvergne, Yiscount of 
Sedan and Duke of Bouillon, an ambitious nobl^ "^lYiO \ac»>s. ^^tX> Vc^

Among the specialties of Nancj are Embroidery, Macaroons, and Art- 
istic PotUry and OUus, 

Nancy, the capital of the Departement de Meurthe'Ct- Moselle, 
and the seat of a bishop, formerly the capital of Lorraine and the 
seat of the dnkes, of whom Stanislaus Lesczinski (d. 1766), ex.- 
king of Poland, was the last, is situated on the Meurthe, and con- 
tains 96,300 inhabitants. It was greatly embellished by Leopold 
[d. 1720), predecessor of Stanislaus, and is one of the best-built 
towns in France. The surrounding vineyards contribute much to the 
beauty of the situation. The University of Nancy has risen in im- 
portance since the annexation of Strassburg to Germany, and its Ecole 
Forestihre, or school of forestry, is the only establishment of the kind 
in France. Until quite recently the British Government regularly 

sent pupils to this school under the charge of an officer. 

After taking Nancy in 1475 and losing it again in the following year, 
Charles the Bold, Duke of Burgundy, was defeated and slain beneath its 
walls by the Duke of Lorraine and the Swiss on Jan. 5th, 1477 (new style). 
Nancy was one of the first pl&ces in which the Bevolutionary spirit was 
shown by the troops in 1790, and Carlyle gives a vivid account in his 
^French Revolution'' of the uprising of *Ch&teau-Vieux^ and its suppression by 
Bouille. In 1870 the town was occupied by the Germans without resist- 
ance. — Among the famous natives of Kancy are Callot (1593-1635), Syhsutre 
(d. 1691), and St. Urbain (d. 1758), the engravers; ffiri (1701-63), the ar- 
chitect; Domda«fe (1777-1843), the agriculturalist; i/ar«Aa/2)rotto/ (1774-1847)-, 
Isahey (1767-1855), the painter, and GrandvilU (or Girard; 1803-47), the 
caricaturist (p. 150). 

The Place Thiers (PI. A, B, 4), in front of the station, is adorned 
with a statue of Thiers (1797-1877), President of the French Re- 
public, by Guilbert, erected in 1879. The town is entered by the 
Porte Stanislas, one of the seven handsome gates of Nancy. Farther 
on, to the left, are the Place Camot and (3ours Leopold (p. 151). 
To the right, in a small square in front of the Lycie, is a Statue 
ofDombade (see above) by David d' Angers. The former Vniversite, 
to the left of the square, now contains a Public Library, with 
86,000 vols, and 5000 MSS. (open daily, except Sun. and holidays, 
9-12 in summer, 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. in winter). The Rue Stanislas 
leads hence to the square of that name, crossing the Rue St. Dizier, 
the busiest in the town. 

The *Flace Stanislas (PI. G, 3, 4), the finest point in the town, 
t^th a bronze Statue of Stanislaus Lesczinski, by Jacquot, erected in 
1831, is suirounded with handsome edifices by H^r^, and adorned 
^ih tasteftil iron railings of the 18th cent., and two monumental 
buntains. To the E. rises the Episcopal Palace, to xXife '^ . xXi.^ 
theatre, to the N. (at a little distance) the Porte Ilov«Xe ^^. V^^^^ ^^^

S. transept is a line example of flowing tracery, with the pecnliarllf 
of haying all llie raullions of the same tliickness. 

The cathedral is adjoined by some remains of Golbic Ctoiiitri,

dmartment of the Manche^ is picturesquely situated on a slope on the 
x^t bank of the Yire, It derives its name from St. Laudus, one of its 
early bishops. The town was fortified by Charlemagne, and was taken 
wreral times by the Normans and English. The stained glass in the 
cathedral was presented by Louis XI., in memory of a successful repulse 
of the Bretons by the town in 1467. The chief object of interest is the 
Chnrch of Jfotft-Dctme, formerly the cathedral, built in the 14th and restored 
in the 17th century. It has two handsome towers \ and outside the choir 
is a fine Gothic stone pulpit. The Bdtel de Ville (a modern structure), the 
Palaie de Jtutice^ and the Frifecture are situated in a square near the 
cathedral. In the vestibule of the first, to the right, is the *Torigni 
Karble\ an antique pedestal with an important inscription. — In the Rue

f)f Ager Constantinus, Many of the followers of William the Con-

those of humble villages In the Cotentin. The hedges here give quite

VieitoTS are permitted to land oji the Digue (hoats, see p. 162), 
which ia fortiied with four forts and twelve batteries. The ewur- 
slon is one of the plessanteet at Cherbourg, i,nd vtaitora enjoy ta 
oppoHmnity of viewing at ctose quaitete eome of the men-of-vii 
whieh are usually lying in the roads. The view from the broitmler 
to the W. of the rentral fort is finer than that from the E. The 
channels at the ends of the Digue are commanded by forls on the 
mainland, as well as by detached torts on tslols. The defonees of 
the town are completed by a chsin of detached forts on the ant' 
ronnding heights. 

The Nayai, H«hbolb, or Dockyard (PI. B, C, 1, 3, 3), U stconglj 
defended on the landward eide by a epeuial line of redoubts and i 
diteh, which practically render it quite separate from the rest of 
the town to the S.W. It is entered by way of the Rue de I'Abbaj*, 
beyond a barrack. Foreigners are admitted only with an ordgr tnn 
the minister of marine. The visit takes about ii/^ hour. ^ 

Louis XIV., with the aid of Vanban, first conceived the idok al , 
establishing a naval harbour at Cherbourg, in opposition to Porti- 
month, about 80 M. distant. Tlie works were, liowever, soon slxit- 
doned ; and nothing was done until Kapoleon I. took up the pnjtel ' 
with vigour. Its completion was reserved for Napoleon IQ., wlw 
opened the port in presence of Queen Victoria tn 1368, exactly 
100 years after the last English attack on the town. The bsibaot 
a[id its buildings cover an area of 54 acres, and conipriss tbrM 
principal baatiis hewn in the Solid rock, sevefal smaller basins, wall 
equipped worlisbops, magazines, and slarehonEes of every sort, tuA 
innumerable sheds, barracks, and other military and naval establisb- 
meats. The three chief basins (the .4>,-anl-Port, Arriirr'Banin, mil 
Baaiin A Flol) have a minimum depth of 30 ft. at low water ani) 
can easily accommodate 40 ships of the line at one time. 

Between the Baesin k Flot and the sea is situated the Diftf- 
(ion dt I'ArliUcTie (PI. B, 1), with an eKiensive Absenal, perhaps 
the most interesting point in the dockyard for the ordinary Tisilor. 
It contains about BO,{H)0 weapons (20,000 muskets), artistically ar- 
ranged ill geometrical patterns and in the shape of portieos, palai 
trees, baskets, etc. Visitors are generally conducted over one or moie 
of the Men-af-War lying In the harlionr; but as these are ncnilly 
iliamantled, (bey are not so interesting as when lying outside In iht

The Clmrch af La TriniU (PI. D, 3, 4), on tha S. aide of the

the Rue St. Jean runs to the right, ending at the BooleTard St. 
Pierre. — On the rigiit sida of ths Rue St. Jean rises the handsome 
late-Gothie church ot St. Jean (PI. D, 4), with an elegant but uii- 
Anished lower. 'I'lie cliurcli is anfortnnately much hidden by the 
adjoining honsas, and its flna portal baa bean disHgured by an un-

*St. Pierre I PI. U, S), in the boulevard of the same name, is a 
most iDtereetini: example of Oothic arohitectare, though dating from 
vsrions epochs from the 13th to the 16tli centnry. The chapels and 
the turret ol the 'Ajisr, both vary elaborately decorated, were added 
in the Renaisaance period. The most striking feature ia the 'Tll^etr 
(266 ft.), to tbe right of the main portal, a m.ulerpieoe of the bold 
and graceful style of art which prevailed at the beginning of the 14th 
century. The apire is pierced, and iia base is surrounded by eight 
small turrets. There is a portal in the side of the tower, but the 
church has no transepts. Ttie cburch is now under restoration.

asms-pSRoii. 

On an eminance beyond the emaSi aiiuare in front of t]i« mtin 
poctsi of St. Piecie are eiCaated Cha remains of tlie Cattle (PL C,D,2), 
begun by WiUiam tlie Gonquetor and flnlBbed by Hency I., and 
Eeveral times altered. It is now used aa barracks, and preseat« few 
points of interest. Tbe castle was held by the English after the reil 
of the town was taken [see p.187), but in 1J59 the garrison of 4000 
men was compelled to surrender to Dnnols. — In the Ru8 de Unnlc 
are some ii"aln' oW honsea (Nos. 17, 31, 371. 

The street leading to the left from the church, as we relnrn from 
the uastle, rnns to the E. extremity of the town, passing the former 
church of 8l. GlUea (PI. E, 3], which is built iti the transition style 
from Gothio to Renaissance. 

A little farther on is "La Triniti (PI. E, F, 2|, the ohnrch of tho 
Abbaye-aut-Damei, founded in 10B6 by Matilda, wife of WlUIun the 
Cojiqaeror, while the latter at the same time founded the church of 
the Abbaye-ani-Hommes (p, 160). These acts of beneBcence vers 
intendedaaaneipistionoflheslnwhitli the pious founders had com- 
mitted ill marrying within the forbidden degrees of consanguinity. 
La Trinity, with the eiception of one ohapel, on the right of the 
choir, in the Transition style, is Narman-Bomanesque ; it has under- 
gone a thoroujih restoration in modern times. Two square lower* ri«a 
on the W. fs^tde and another from the transepts ; all three, long de- 
prived of their spires, were provided with balustrades in the ISlh 
century. The majestic simplicity of the interior is no less striking 
than the dignity of the exterior. Small g&tleries surmount the aisles, 
and there Is an interesting crypt beneath the choir. The choir, whleh 
is reserved for the nuns who manage the Hotel-Dieu (see below], 
is closed to the public; but it and the crypt are shown to vlelton 
to the hospital. It contains tlio modest tomb of the foundress. 

The BBIet'Dieu or Hoipllal (I'l. F, 2), adjoining the church, if 
Katablished in the former nunnery, rebuilt iu the 18lh venturf. The 
nuns of La Triniti! were generally daughters of noble familiae and 
enjoyed eoneiderabie privileges. The abbess was known as Madame 
de Caen. Visitors, generally admitted on application, are expected 
(0 make a contribution to the poor-box. The eitearive park ooln- 
mands attractive views. 

As we retrace oar steps to St. Pierre, we have a view of th* 

disUnt towers of St. Etienne (see p. 160). Beyond St. Pierre we 

follow tbe Rue St, Pierre (Pi. C, 3), Nos. B2 and 51 iti whioh (mat 

'ie beginning) sru quaint houses with vood-carring. Farther on,

The Kne Frolde, skirting the charcli, leads to the UniveriUi

dating from last century, but recently mtinh enlarged, contains 
a Ffatural History Museum [adm. Snn., 12-4^ ■-'I'l the etbnograpli- 
icsl collections of Dnmont d'DrvillB (p. 193). In front of it, in the 
Kue Pastenr, are brorii^e BlatDes of MaUierbe (p. 167), by tbe elder 
Dintan, and Laplaet (1749-1827; a native ofCalvadoB), tbe math- 
ematician, by Barre. — Near tbe Dni*eraitS are the modem 
Gothic Benedictine Chureh, atCanhad to a conTcnt, and the Frome- 
nade St. JuUen. — At the W, end of the Rue Pafteut 1b the Place 
.St. Sauvear, in which is another church of SI. Savt-eur CP1.B,2, 3), 
dating from the 12th, 14th, and 16th cent., now a corn -market. On 
iho fight side of tbe square risee the Palali de Jusike (18th eent.)„ 
In the centre is a bronze statue, by L. Itouhet, of Elie de Beaamont- 
(1798-1874), the geologist, a native of tbe department 

The Kue Ecnyere, continuing the Rue de St. Pierre to the W. 
from tbe PalaiE de Jnsdce, leads to — 

*St. Etienne or St. Bteplitn [Pi. A, B, 3), the cliurch of tbe Ab- 
baye-auz-Hommea, founded by William the Conqueror at the Bame 
date as La Trinity (p. 168). St. Etienne is in the same style as Lr 
'i'rinite, though larger, but its unity of style was destroyed by alter- 
ations in the 12th cent., when the choir was rebuilt in the Pointed 
style. It is difQcutt to obtain a satisfactory tIew of the ohurch, on 
account of the buildings which hem it in. The W. facade, with two 
elegant towers of the 12th cvut., 295 ft. high, is remarkably plain; 
and the interior also, like tharof La TrinitS, is distinguished by it*, 
dignified Blmpllclty. The aisles here too are provided with galleries;' 
the S. aisle is adjoined by a Gothic chapel added in the 14th ceiituryi 
The transepts are shallow and have no doorways. A lanteru-towet 
of the 17l:h cent, replaces the pyramidal spire, 400 ft. high, which 
formerly surmouiited the crossing. A black marble slab In front of 
tbe high-allar marks the tomb of William the Conqneror |_d. 1087) ; 
but the bones of the monarch were rudely scattered by llie Hugne- 
nots In 1562, and again In 1793, so that the tomb is now empty. 
The sacristy, itself an Interesting specimen of architecture, contains 
an ancient portrait of the Conqueror. Other noteworthy features are 
the cholr-stalis, the carved cloclc-caee in the N. transept, tbe pulpit, 
and the organ- case, supported by colossal figures.

Trouville, pleiisantly sLCoBted at the moath or tlie Toujuej, is 
DOW the most frequented watering-place un the coast uf Notmaudy. 
The season lasts from ,Taly to October anil is at Its height in Angtist, 
wliea living here Ie extremely expensive. Forty years ago Trouville 
was a htiinble llghing- village with a smaU harbour ; now it has 6360 
Inhab., and the bi^ach and ailjacent slopes are covered with hand- 
some villas and couiitrj'-houBes. 

Tha tailway-slation is aitnated on (he left bank of the river, be- 
tween Deanviilo and Tronvillc. We cross a bridge to reacli the 
latter. The Haibaur is much used by Qshitig-boits and also carries 
on some trade In timber. The charch on Che hill (o the right ol' the 
harbonr, Notre-Daini-dcf' Vietoircs, is a modern erection. The Fisli 
Harkel, near the end of the quay, presents an interesting spectacle 
when the lishing-boats come in. Thence the important Roe dea 
Bains leads to Notre-Damc-d(-Bons~Sec(yuri, another small modern 
church, with a flno facade and a KeDaissance Cower. Beyond the 
flah-market rises the Butel de Vilie, in the style of LouSfl XIII., to 
Che left of whicb is the Place de la Cahotte [ferry, see p. 173). 

'i'he 'Btach (Plage/ of Trouville, stretching from the harbour ID 
the Hotel dee Koches Noires, a distance of about ^/g M., is one of the 
flnest in France and daring most of the day in the season thronged 
with holiday-makers and bathers in faEhionable and attractive coa- 
tames. It ia bordered for nearly its entire length by a broad paved 
or hoarded promenade, and beUad ia a row of pleasant villaa. tc has 
been epigram malically described aa the 'Suraraer Boulevard of Paris'. 

The Caiina, known also aa the Salon, a large edillce of brick and 
stone, rising on a terrace overlooking the beach, offers all the altrac' 
tions common to fashionable InEtiCntlons of Che sort. Theatrical pei^ 
rnrmances take place twice a week, and a grand ball is usually given 
on Sundays. — Another small Qiiino Was opcued in 1892 on th» 
Promenade Pitr, at the other end of the beach ; adw. to pier M o,, 
gratis to passengers hy tlie steamer to 1,e tlavre, ivMch starts hera 
at low-tide.

a half-flUed canvas. The beach is distinctly inferior to the heach at 

Tronville, and at low water the tide recedes too far. The Terrasse 

skirts a number of fine houses, situated somewhat far apart. — 

From the beach a tramway runs to TourgSville-les-Sablons (10 c.) 

and BinerviUe (20 c), about halfway to ViUers-sur-Mer (see below). 

During one week in August Deauville is the scene of a highly 

fashionable race-meeting.

Bitasted at Bt. Andri-d^Hihertot. The road intersects the picturesque Forest 
of Touquet and passes (5 M.) St. Oatien and OVa M.) St. Benoit-d Ilibertot. 
The station of Quetteville (p. 172) lies 2V2 M. to the N.W. of the chateau. 
About 3V« M. to the N.E. of Trouville, by the Honfleur road, is the 
watering-place of Villerville (omnibus 1 fr.; private carr. according to 
bargain). The road ascends a steep hill, passing the fine Chdteau Cordier 
and several pretty villas. l'/4 M. Uennequeville. — Villerville {Hdlel de 
Ptai$; dtt Bairn; de la Plage; etc.) is a picturesquely-situated bathing- 
place of more humble pretentions than Trouville or Deauville. It has a 
small Casino and is surrounded by attractive country-houses. 

From Trouville to Le Havre^ see p. 61 ; to Honfleur^ see p. 173. 

The Railway to Cabourg diverges to the right from that from 
Lisieux to Paris. On the right lies the race-course of Deauville. —

yillers-sur-Mer is a picturesquely situated sea-bathing place 
resembling Trouville. The environs are undulating and prettily 
hooded; the shingly beach, 1 M. from the station, is very extensive 
and flanked by tasteful villas. At one end is a small Casino (adm. 
^ ^r.). The church, on the cliff, has been partly rebuilt in the Gothic 
!*yle of the 13th cent, and is embellished with stained glass by 
^amel-Marette. — Interesting excursion to (37o M.] Houlgate

memorates the OTent; and the names of his companions, so far as 
linown, hace been inscribed inside the porch of the CbuffA, which 
dates from the 14th and 16th centuries. The timber Markti Bvild-

Lion-8ur-Mer is the leading watering-place on the W. coast of 
Calvados, though it is even less pretentious than Houlgate or Ca- 
bourg and has no casino. The whole coast to the W. of Caen, though 
a little shingly, is very suitable for bathing, and at places it rises in 
cliffs of some height. At certain points the end of the season is apt 
to be accelerated by the smell of the sea-weed cast up in large 
quantities by the sea, which though used as manure by the peasants, 
is seldom wholly carted away before it begins to decay. There are 
few distractions at these watering-places beyond those offered by the 
sea and the beach. The bathing-boxes are large enough to be let

The niOEt conspicuous building is the fine Gothic 'Cathedral, 
dating in great part from the 13th cent., with two W. towers, and 
a beautiful central •Tower of great boldness, which forms a flno 
lantern in the interior. Mr. Ruskin, in his 'Lectures on ArchiteC' 
tare', singles out the W. towers of this church as showing one of the 
earliest eiamples (if not the very earliest) of the fully developed spiro, 
and points out 'the complete domesliciii/ of the woili ; the evident 
treatment of the church spire merely as a magiitllcd house-roof. The 
tower should be ascended both for the sake of inspecting it and for 
the sake of the view from the top, whioh embraces St. Malo and the 
island of Jersey. In the interior the chief points of interest in- 
clude the tritorium and the beantiful rose-windows in the nave, the 
dontile ambolatory in the choir, with its coupled rolumns, the 
Gothic hl^b-altar of the 18th cent,, and souie Gothii^ bss-reliefs in the

The Church of St. Pierre, a. Gothic ediflco of the 13-l&th cant., 
also shows traces of the handiwork of Che Mfte'zeaus. Only one of 
its two towers has been finished (in the 16th cent.); and Ihe eitertoc' 
generally has been mnrh injured by the ilight of time. The Lady 
Uhapel and tbe chapels of the aisles contain some good old stained 
glass, restored in modern times. The former has also a flno organ- 
case, designed in 1614 by Clfment MftiTzcau, the constructor of th9 
breakwater at La iiochelle.

The "CuiFBi-LB BoTALa, or ChapeUe St. Louis, is a handsome and ' 
highly interesting erection, in spite of the medley of irchiCectnrsl 
styles wlilch it presents. It wea begun in 1310 hy the Dowager

Crsngfeired hither from their temporary tomljs at Wey^ridge in Eng- 
land. The priDcipal part of tlie chapel, and the fitst built, is the 
rotunda, 80 ft. high, crowned by a dome 43 ft. In diameter. The 
nave, tlie apse, and the transepts, whirh were afterwards added so 
aa to form a Greeli cross, are all very short. The strange appearance of 
tho pile is hoigblened by four balustrades which run round the out- 
side of the dome, one above the other. On either side of the maiu 
entrance is an octagonal turret, in open stone-worh; and the porUd '

Park Cve 



lofiMMM. MAINTENON. 28, RouU. 195 

The CStdUau or Palais National, reached by the Rue Nationale 
and Hie avenues in the park heyond the ornamental water, consists 
of a number of incongruous buildings, surrounding an old crenelated 
tower. Neither exterior nor interior is of any special interest. 

The great attraction of Bamhouillet is the ^Parha of the chateau, 
which surpass the gardens of Versailles in size, variety, and natural 
beauty, and contain many charming and secluded walks. In front 
of the chateau is a Parterre, adjoined by the Small Park, The sheet 
of water in the latter is diversifled by several islets (boat 50 c. per 
hr. for each pers.). To the right beyond this lake is the Pare An- 
glais, which we reach most directly by skirting the left margin of 
the lake and passing through a magnificent avenue of Louisiana 
cypresses, said to be unique in Europe. The English Park contains 
streams of water, a chalet, and a hermitage. To the right of this 
park, to the N.E. of the lake, is a Dairy constructed by Louis XVI., 
with a temple and an artificial grotto. Beyondy at the top'of the 
avenue, is a Farm, where Napoleon I. kept the first merino sheep 
brought from Spain to France. To the right, between the Pare 
Anglais and the N. part of the town, lies the Oreat Park,] which 
covers 3000 acres and contains numerous avenues of noble trees. — 
To the N. of the town extends the Forest of Rambouillet. 

At (38 M.) Epernon, a small and ancient town, to the right, an 
obelisk has been erected to its defenders in 1870. 

43 M. Kaintenon (St. Pierre ; de la Oare), a small town on the 
£ure, to the right of the railway, possesses a handsome chsiteau of 
the 16-17th cent., from which Fran^oise d'Aubign^, widow of the 
IM>et Scarron, took the title of Marquise de Maintenon on her mar- 
riage to Louis XIV. in 1684, at the age of forty-nine. To the right, 
beyond the station, are the ruins of the huge Aqueduct begun by 
Louis XIV. to conduct the waters of the Eure to his gardens at Ver- 
sailles. Upwards of 30,000 men, chiefly soldiers, were employed on 
this work from 1684 to 1688, but it was then discontinued owing to 
the great mortality among the labourers. Louis XV. used part of 
the materials to construct a chfiteau for Mme. de Pompadour, which, 
however, has disappeared. — Branch-lines hence to Dreux (see 
p. 182) and to Auneau (p. 267). 

Beyond Maintenon the train crosses the valley of the Voise by 
a lofty viaduct and ascends the valley of the Eure. 4872 ^' Jouy;

worship of a 'maiden who should bear a child'. The oldest part of 
llie haildlng is the crypt, a relic of an earlier church destroyed t>r

(nhen about 1120, amid great popular enthusiasm, tbe deioU 
pcasauts foiling themselves to carts and draj^ging materials for llil 
towers ; but a great part of the church was again deelroyed by fln 
In 1194, and tbe cathedral in ite present form probably dates malnll 
from the flrst half of the 13th century. The principal tower vu

bloclis of stone employed in its construction, the simplioitf of in 
design, and the grandeur of ita conception cotnbiiie to invest iMi 
cathedral with an air of the most impresslre dignity. 

The luge *W. Fasade, which is somewhat severe in general 
uspect, is pierced by three doorways lavishly adorned with scnlp- 
Lures, representing scenes in the life of Jesut Christ, with statiiet 
and statuettes of Prophets, the Elders of the Apocalypse, and oAer 
Uiblical characters. Above the doors are three pointed windows 
surmounted by a handsome tose-window, above which again rant 
an arcade irith sixteen large statues. Over the arcade Hsbb a gaUd, 
containing a figure of the Virgin between two sngeh and bmlnt

The 'Side Portal!, which are nmeh more elaborately decorated

by porches of the 14th century. The scalptures on Ihu N. portnl 
represent scenes from the life of the Virgin, and those on the S. the 
Last Judgment. The noble style oS the large slataes, the wonderful 
eipcessiieness of the ^talnedes, the variety and life of the bas' 
reliefs, snd the finish of the mouldings combine to range these 
portals among the most splendid eiiamples of monumental sculp- 
lure. Theotherparts of the exterior of (he ehnrch are also conspicu- 
ous for the orfglnallly of their conoeptioo and the richness of

^ytx Mayeime. For 600 years it has been the centre of an active 
mnmfaotiire of linen, now chiefly producing tickings. The marble 
found in the neighbourhood is sawn or made into lime here. Laval 
was taken by Talbot in 1428, and changed hands several times 
during the wars of the League and La Yend^e. 

The ancient part of the town, rising in tiers on the right bank 
of the river and dominated by the cathedral and the castle , pre- 
sents a very picturesque aspect as seen from the railway-viaduct 
(see p. 206) or from the bridge. Its streets, however, are narrow and 
iiregnlar. To reach it we follow the Rue de la Gare and the Rue de 
la Paix, crossing the river by the Font-Neuf. Beyond the bridge 
we reach the Place de rHotel-de-Ville, embellished with a bronze 
statue, by David d' Angers, of Ambroise Pari^ styled the ^Father of 
French Surgery^ who was bom near Laval about 1610. 

Thence the Rue de rH6tel-de-yille leads to the left to the Castle, 
which consists of two parts, the *01d' and the *New'. The Old Castle, 
a sombre-looking edifice now transformed into a prison, is seen to 
most advantage from the Rue du Yal-de-Mayenne, near the river. 
Visitors are admitted (on application at the Prefecture , Rue des 
Trois- Croix) to the court, to the interesting donjon (12th cent.), 
-with its fine timber-roof, and to the chapel (11th cent.). The New 
CaatU dates partly from the Renaissance period and is now the 
court-house. 

The Cathedral, an unimposing and irregular building of the 
12tb and 16th cent., was finally freed firom the neighbouring build- 
ings in 1889. The Romanesque W. portal is modem ; bat the S. 
portal, with its unfinished tower, also Romanesque, and the Renais- 
sance N. portal are ancient. The interior is more interesting^than 
the exterior. The oldest part is the transept (12th cent.). The 
choir (16th cent.) has five radiating chapels. 

To the S.W. of the cathedral stands the Porte Beucheresse, one 
of the old town-gates, in the Gothic style, flanked by two towers. — 
The Rue Marmoreau descends hence to the Place de Herc^, in which 
are the CfaUrU de VIndustrie (18th cent.) and the Musie des Beaux 
Arts, built in 1891-96 and containing a small collection of paint- 
ings, by FUmdrin, Isahey, LenepveUj Meissonier, etc. 

In ^e Place de la Biblioth^que, between the cathedral and the 
Place de rH6tel-de-yille, stands the Museum, containing the public 
library and a small archaeological collection. — To the left, in the 
Rue Joinville, which begins at the Place de rH6tel-de-yille, is the 
church of Notre-'Dame, a stmcture of the 14-16th cent., containing 
several line marble altars of the 17th century. 

Bolow the Pont Neuf is the Pont Vieux, or Pont de Mayenne, a 
Gothic structure of the 14th cent., Y2 ^* ^^om which \% ^^ \^^%Nxr

da Ville and the theatre. The HSUl d« VilU, rebuilt by Gabriel, the 
architect of Lonis XV., after the great flee of 1720 (p. 208), is in 
tbe form of a semicircle between two paTlliona and is eurmoonted 
by a tower ending in a bnlboiis dome. The TlifatYe (PI. B, C, S), 
dating from 1836, is also in a eemiGircnlai form, but presents its 
conTBi side to the Place. The facade is sunnonnted by flgorBa of

containing a canopied higk-altar, a handsome pulpit, a bas-iellef of 
the marriage of the Virgin (altar on the S.), statues of SS. Peter 
and PanI, good modern stained gUss, a few old paintings, and other 

A little farther on rises the Cathedral (PI. A, 3), a building of

19tb century. The fai;.adeiE in the classical style. The interior, which 
i« scarcely ecclesiastical in style, is richly adorned with paintings by 
Le HiSnaff and Job^-Duval. The last chapel in the 5. aiale contains 
a fine altar-piece, in carved and painted weod, oiecuted in the 
16th century. In the N. arm of the transept is a monnment, by 
Valentin, erected in 1889 to Cardinal St. Marc (1803-78). 

In the lane opposite the cathedral rises the Porte Mordclaise 
(CI. A, 3], an Interesting relic of the medlieyal fortifications of the 
town (16tb cent.), surrounded by old bansee. Through thla gate the 
Drikea of Brittany and Bishops of Rennes made their formal entries

(1112-1888), .»a tsmeoB^i (ITBa-lBH). 

The (slIwiy-Btation Is situated in the suburb of Roa^eg, n«u 
the hubonr, between St. Halo and St. SenaD, and about '/g H. ttoa 
DAi^h. To reach the former, we turn first to the rlgbt, mi Iban to 
tho leftj between a wet dock and the inner reservoir. The ttMOwij 
route (6 min. longer) traverFes the SHfon, sn 6mh«nkinent 220 yds, 
long and abont 150 ft broad, which connects the look on vhiob Ihe 
town stands with the mainland. 

The SorAour (recently completed), In a shallow bay be(we«ii 
St. Malo and St. Saryan, consists mainly of an outer basin, a lidil 
harbonr, two vet docks, and an Inner reeenoir. St. Malo it At 
tweliih port in France in point of importance ; it Imports timber tnd 
coal, exports provisions of all kinds to England, and lakes a considvi- 
ahle share in the Newfoundland uod-flsbery. 

At the end of the Sillon next the town, to the right, is (kg 
modeit Caiino (see p. 223), in front of which is a bronze Slahit tf 
VbaUmihriand, hy KQllet. 

Opposite rises the Casllt, dating from tho 14-i5th cent., dov 
used as barracks, it consists mainlT of four towers, one of whUfc 
may he ascended for the sake of the view. An almost equallf 
extensive and more Taried view may, however, be en.|oyed fran 
the *flamparls,' which date mainly from the llitb century. Tirtwts 
should Dot omit (o make the circuit of the town on the rsmpartt, 
both for the sake of en,lDylng tbe curious appearauie of the town, 
and also for the view of the bay, which is finest when the tide \t 
full. . The bay is dotted with fortified islets, one of which, tht 
Qrand-Hcy, 550 yds. from the town, contains (be simple tomb ti 
Chateaubriand (d. 1848), St. Malo is remarkable for tbe greal 
height to which the tide rises. Oidiaary tides rise from 23 to 26 ft, 
spring-tides 48 fL above low-water mark; and at low water an Im- 
mense tract U uncovered, so that it Is possible to walk dryahod u 
IbejGrand-liey. 

The town Is hemmed^in on all sides by the ramparta, and mui 
of Its streets 'are s(eep,t narrow, and tortuous. From the small ftatt 
Outtambriand, in front of tbe castle, we ascend to the oontie of ihe 
town by the Rue St'Thomas or the Rue St. Vincent (opposite the 
gateway), and then turn to tbe left. 

The Parish 0iurcAL formerly the cathedral, is built mainly iii 

the Gothic (16th cent.) and Rflnalssance style*, but some parts date 

from the Transition period, and the elegant spire la modern. Tba

i9t. Servan, fottnerly only a sabnrb of St. Halo, is now a Ecparate 
but uninteresting town with 1'2,!M0 inhabitants. It may be reached 
from St. Malo by the road paesing the Etation, oi (better) by the 
Pont RouZant at the mouth of the harbour. This bridge (fares, see 
p. 224) moves upon raiU laid at the bottom of tbe sea, and is drawn 
from side to side of the harbour-mouth by means of a stationary 
steam-engine on the St. Servan side. The ptattonn for passengerH 
is 40 ft. above tbe tails. The handsome modern Maitie or H6tei de 
VUle (tramway, p. 323) is at the top of the Grande Rue. To the S. 
is the Church of Ste. Crow, built in the 18-19tb cent, and contain- 
ing a handsome modern pulpit in carved stone and some mnral 
paintings by Duveau. Besides sharing the harbour of 8t. Malo, 
^t. Seivan has two small harbours at the mouth of the Bance, the 
Port de Solidor and the Pari St. Fire, between which rises the 14th 
f.ent. Tour de SoUdur (visitors admitted ; view). These harbonrs are 
separated from the bay at Les Salilombj a rocky promontory, crown- 
ed by a fort on the site of an ancient town called Ateth. The small 
Bathing Establishment of .St. Ser'an , with its casino, ia situated on 
ihe bay of Les Sablons, on the side next St. Malo. There is another, 
even less pretentious, outside the town, near the Ranee.

i<diBiiable specimen of 13th cent, architecture, 92 ft. long, with de- 
piMsed vaulting and a triple row of columns, and the ^Refectory, one

the Almonry and the Cellar (1203), which are known as the Mont-

This is a very agreeable excursion, though the beauties of the Ranee 
Ao act, perhaps, quite justify their local reputation. The banks are pictur- 
Mque, but hardly bold enough in comparison with the breadth of the 
>treui, except in the neighbourhood of Dinan, and the general effect wants 
Tftriety. It is, therefore, hardly advisable both to go and come by the river, 
ttpedally as the interval allowed by the steamer is not long enough for 
^ proper inspection of the interesting town of Dinan, and as part of the 
'Btvn-joumey is made after dark. The steamers also are often late. 

The steamer touches at Dinar d (p. 226). We have a fine retro- 
spect of St. Male, and then (to the left) of St. Servan, with the 
Tour de Solidor, the roadstead, etc. On the Rocher de Blzeux, between 
St. Servan and the Pointe de la Yicomt^ (p. 226), rises a colossal 
ftguie of the Virgin (40 ft. high), by Caravaniez. Farther on, to 
^e il^t, appear La Ridiardais^ the Pointe de Cancaval^ and Mont

Quitting the station, we follow the Rue Thiers to a cross-stre* 
To the left diverges the fine promenade known as the GraTidi-Fotfe 
and farther on, lieyond the little Place de Fretagne, the PetUi-Fos'' 
diverges to the right. On both sidee considerable remains of tl

Witory, etc). — The street to the left leads to the Place Duguesclin, 
embeUished with a poor modem statue of the Conn^table Duguesclin, 
wLo recaptured the town from the English in 1359. The Place 
ooeapies the site of the field in which he defeated in single combat 
ID English knight, named by the Breton chroniclers ^Sir Thomas of 
Cantorbtfry'. — Farther on, to the right, is the CastU^ now a prison, 
the donjon of which (112 ft. in height) is usually shown to visitors 
on application. It is partly built into the ancient walls and belongs 
to the same epoch (l4th cent.). The exterior of this ancient pile is 
host viewed from the Petits-Fosses, a little farther on. 

The Rue du Ghslteau leads to the most picturesque parts of the 
town, skirting the base of steep rocks, till it reaches tlie banks of 
the Ranee , the wooded channel of which offers various attractive 
▼lews. The river is spanned by an imposing stone * Viaduct, 270 yds. 
long and 130 ft. high. — Thence we ascend direct to the centre of the 
town, the narrow streets of which contain many quaint old houses. 

The church of St. Sauveur, in the neighbourhood, to the left, is 
* curious edifice, the right side of which is Romanesque, the left 
Gothic. The Romanesque portal is unfortunately in very bad pre- 
servation. The right wall is adorned on the exterior with arcades 
and mouldings, and a tasteful Gothic chapel was added at the third 
hay in the 15th century. There is but one aisle, consisting of the 
Gothic part of the W. arm. The choir is also Gothic. The holy- 
vater basin, supported by Caryatides, to the left of the entrance, 
dates from the 12th century. In the N. transept is a stone marking 
the spot where the heart of Bcrtrand Duguesclin is buried; and in 
one of the choir-chapels, on the same side, are two tasteful Gothic 
wedences. On the other side is a modern tomb in granite. — The 
cemetery of this church is now a Public Garden. 

The narrow street opposite the left transept is continued by the 
Rue Oroix-Quart to the old Rue du Jerzuat, leading to the Porte du 
Jentwi, one of the most curious parts of the old town, Gothic out- 
ride and Romanesque within. A little to the left is the Porte St. Malo^ 
a similar but less interesting structure. 

The street leading to the S. from the Porte St. Male debouches 
in the Rue de I'Horloge, near the 16th cent. Tour de I'Horloge. 
farther on, a little to the left, is the Place des Cordeliers, beyond 
vhich is the Grande Rue, leading back to the Hotel de Ville. 

8t. Malo, to the right, near the latter, is a large church of the 
*^h cent., the W. arm of which was rebuilt in 1855-65. In the 
"^terior is a large modern painting by Archenault, representing 
(^ihiiit triumphing over Death and Sin. The handsome high-altar 
has bas-reliefe from the life of St. Malo, and a statue of that saint, 
oy S&vary. In the central choir-chapel is a tomb of the 15th cent. ; 
*• Wy-water basin dates from the same period, and the ^ul^it \s>

with tbe Loire. Farther on, in the Place du Commerce, stands the 
Eicftunjre (Tl. D, 3), buUt in 1792-1812, To the left la the small 
He Feydtau. We neit reach the Qan de la Bourse (PI. D, 9), 
already mentioned, and the Quai dc la Foait, ekiitlng the harhour, 
to which we may return after visiting tlie Interior of the town. The 
Edict of Nantes is said to ha^e been signed in the Maison dc» Tou- 
rtlle.- (No. 5). No. 17 also deserves iltention. 

llie Rut Jean-Jacquta Eawiau (PI. D, 3), which leaves the 
quay between the Exchange and the Gare de la Bonrse, leads to 
the Plact Grailin (PI. D, 3), the centre of the town. In it slanda 
the Grand Thidtrc, built in 1788, but eeveral times restored since 
(hen , with a Ciorinthian colonnade surmonnted by the figures of 
eight Muses. The vestibule contains statues of Oornellle and Molicre 
by Molkneeht and the anditotium has a fine ceiling, painted by 
ftippolyte Berteaui in 1881. 

To the S.W. of the Place OTuHn extends the Conn de la Hi- 
pabliqae or Cambronne (PI. C, D, 3), a promenade embellished with 
a bronze alatna of Ocneral Cambranne (1770-1842;), a native of the 
environs of Nantes, erected in 1848. On the pedestal is inatrlbed the 
answer he is said to have given at Waterloo: 'The guard dies, but never 
surrenders'. The statue was executed by .lean Dehay, a native artist. 

A little to the N. of the Coura Carabtonne, in the Roe Voltaire, 
stands the Ecok dei Sdfncci (PI. C, 3), erected In 1821 , and med 
llrst as a mint and then as a court of justice. Ita handsome facade, 
in the dasBlcal style, with a sculptured pediment, is turned towards 
the Place de la Monniie. Besides the law-courts it now contains 
an important Xasenm of HaturSimistoTy (PI. C, 3), open to the

Spanish Dominican, St. Vincent Forriei, born at Valentia in 1357, 
who died at Vannesin 1418. Hia tomb is In the N. transept. Several

Good anchorage may he obtained in the Bay of Quiberon, which 

ii munorable fbr the naval battle fought in 56 B.C. between the 
Amins under young Decimus Brutus and the Veneti (p. 254), a 
seaftring people, whose large and strong ships, equipped with 
.diain-cables and leathern sails, used to visit Britain. The Yeneti, 
bowever, were eonquered, their 220 ships destroyed, and the people 
sold into slavery by Osesar, who had watched the battle from the 
shore. The harbour of Quiberon is at Port Maria, where there are 
also sardine-curing factories. Port Haliguen lies about ^j^ M. dis- 
tant, on the £. coast of the peninsula. 

A steamboat leaves Port Maria or Port Haliguen twice or thrice a day 
in sunmer for Belle-Ile-eii-lKer (10 M., in V4-ilir.; fares 2Vs, 2 fr.), the 
l«^est island belonging to Brittany, 11 M. long and 2V2-6 M. broad. The 
cidef town is Le Palaia (H6iel du Commerce ; de France)^ with 4981 inhab. 
<LBd a double line of fortifloation , one modem and one dating from the 
16-I7th centuries. The inhabitants are engaged in the sardine-fishery and 
in the preparation of potted fish. There is also a reformatory on the 
island. The coast is in many places picturesque, with remarkable grot- 
toes; the most Interesting spots may be visited in about Vz day by carriage 
(8>i2fr.), which should be secured in advance. 

Plouliamel (Httel des Menhirs) is surrounded, like Carnac, by 
-Ancient Stone Monuments^ most of which lie to the W. of the village, 
scattered on either side of the road. The principal monuments are 
®^y found. The Dolmen de Kergavat lies to the left of the road to 
Oainac; the Dolmen ofRunesto and the Dolmens of Mani-Kerioned 
* little to the N.E., to the left and right respectively of the road to 
Aniay. The Menhirs of Vieux-Moulin lie on the other side of the 
'Railway, on the road to Belz, and the large Dolmen of Crucuno 
U M. from the road and i^j^ M. from the station. Still farther along 
*he road, li/4 M. from the road to Crucuno, are the Lines ofErdeven^ 
insisting of 1030 menhirs resembling those at Carnac (see below). 

Oamao (H6tel des Voyageurs), i^/4 M. to the S.E. of Plouharnel, 
^ perhaps even more celebrated for its ancient remains. The 
Museum here (50 c.) owes its origin to Mr. Miln (d. 1881), a Scot- 
ch antiquary, who made important excavations and discoveries in 
^ neighbourhood. To the left of the road from Carnac to Loc- 
^ariaquer rises the Mont 8t, Michel ^ a 'galgal' or tumulus, 65 ft. 
^h and 260 ft. in diameter, consisting chiefly of blocks of stone 
J^eaped up over a dolmen. Fine view from the top, including the

^Uy 12-16,000), arranged on a moor in the form of a quincunx,

It WAS fouiideil, under the name of t' Orient, in the 17tb nent. by the 
powerful Compi);niB des Indes Orientalee, who eetsblished tbeir 
ship-bnilding yards here. When the company collapsed after the 
eaptnie of liengsl by (be British in 1753, (be donkyards and works 
wore puteiiaBed by tba stale. 

The town is well built but uninte resting. The Rue Victor-Maaae, 
diTBTging to the right from tbe proIoogaUon of the Cours Chazelle, 
leads to the Plaee iTAhaee-LorTaitte, tbe principal square. The Rua 
dee Fontaines, quitting tbe latter a( its left angle, coudBcts as to two 
smaUer squares, in one of which is the Chvrrk of St. Ionia (18lh 
cent.} and in the other a bronze ^lalue ofBhson, a youog naval lieu- 
teuant wbo blew up his ship in 1827 to prexent it falling into the 
bands of Greek pirates. To the left of St. Louis is a emal] Mvnicipal 
Muitum (open on Sun. and Thurs., 12 to 4 or 5; straagere admitted 
on other days also). The CoursdelaBose, totheriBhloftbechiirch,

3 'Statue of VktOT tSiml (1SI22-S4), the composer. The Rue du 
Port leads from this statue to tbe dockyard. 

To visit (he Dnckyini, wl(h the exception of the part near the 
Place d'Atmes, which is always open, foreigners require a apeoial 
permit fVom tbe Ministry of Marine, At the entrance is a Signal 
Tourer, 125 ft. in height. The arsenal is interesting, though not so 
important as tbat of Brest. There are also workshops at Caudan, on 
the left bank of the Srorff, which is crossed by a floating bridge. 

The CommfTcial Barbour lies at the S. end of tbe dockyard, 
between tbe town proper and a new suburb. It includes a dry dock 
ind a floating- dock. Tbe trade is chiefly connected with the re- 
qniiements of the dockyard. 

Tbe Boadsltad, beyond the two harbours, is formed by a dtup

The'CathedTBlof Ste. Cioix(Pl.E, 3), tboDghitsfatadeiEint-

ly tbe Hngaenots in 1567, it was practically rebuilt between 1601 
nd 1829, the greater part in a BDcccssfol eiioogh repiodoctiou of tbe 
ite-QotMc manner, while the florid facade, designed by Gabriel, 
rehitect to Louis XV., attains a certain amoont of dignity in spile 
fits bastard style. The latter is flanked by two towers, 285ft. higb, 
litbont spites, between which are three portals, surmounted by 
3Be-windows and an open gallery. Tbe lowers are carried np tbiee 
lories higbet, the first stage i[i each having spiral staircases at the 
Dmeis and statuea, the next two, light arcades \ both lowers termiii- 
te in open crown-shaped galleries. Between tbe towers Is seen 
le gtacBAil central spire, rebuilt in 1850. Tbe cburcb is 485 ft. in

the TourairUj the chief town of the Dipartement d7n(2r<-e<-Xoire, the 
headquarters of the IXth Army Corps, and the seat of an archbishop, 
is situated in a fertile plain on the left bank of the Loire and extends 
with its suburbs as far as the right bank of the Cher, nearly 2 M. 
f^om the Loire. The agreeable situation and mild climate of Tours 
have induced large numbers of English and other foreigners to take 
up their abode here. 

Tours, a town of the Gallic tribe of the Turones or Turoni, joined tho 
league under Vercingetorix against Gsesar in B. G. 52. It was afterwards 
transferred from the K. to the 8. bank of the Loire, and known under 
the BoBBan emperors as Oaeearodtmum and Qater) Urhe Turomim. It be- 
came the capital of the Third Lugdunensis in 874 A. D. From the invasion 
of tha Fmnkt until the 11th cent, the town was the capital of a line oC 
counts, whose descendant, Henry II., united TtmraVtve NvWfak. \Ni'& '^x^s^^^^

The CHATEAtF of Chlnon consists in leolity of three dlstlnut 
les : the Choteia de St. Georges, ths Chiteua da Milien, and the 
lean du Condray, The plateau an vhieh the ruins stand is now 
omenade, open to the puhlic in summer on Sim. and bolidajs, 
a 12 till dusk. Visitors at other times ring Che hell. The ChSUau 
U. Georgta, of which only the foundations of the onter wall le- 
n, was built by Henry II. of England (see p. 38J). The ChiUiai 
Milieu was built in the 11th and Euhs«quent ceoc. on the alte of 
Roman fort. It has frequently been restored. The principal fea- 
ii aie the Pavilion de TBerloge, at the entrance i the QrandLogis, 
be hall of which (insciriptioti) Joan of Arr was presented to Char- 
VII.; and the donjon, the part in best pieserration. The Cliateau 
Coudray, connected with the preceding by a bridge spanning a 
P moat, includes a fine tower and chapel of the 13th oenL (tu 

left), and two round towers. Tbe castle couimands a beautifnl 
w of Chinon and the valley of the Vienne. 

Near the base of the ascent to the chateau is the church of 
Stephen, ■ building of the 16tb cent., with a tasteful W. portal, a 
le naiB, a modern Itone pulpit, some good modem stained glass 

Lobin), and a noticeable altar-plene. The cope of St, Hesine 
es from the 10th or lllb >>entury. The present chaich of St. 
phen was finished by Pliilippe de Comines, who was governor of 
inon under Louis XI, In the prolongation of the Rue tit. Etienne 

two Romaneeque and Oolbic lowers and otbet remains of the 
iicli of St. Meame. Adjacent is a tasteful modern Gothic Oiapel, 

The Rue St. Maurice, running from the Place de rUotel-de-VlUe 
:he other aide of the town, contains several curious old houses. It 
i>e9 its name from the Churdi of 8l. Afiiuricf, an ediBce of (be 
h, 16tb, and 16th cent., with a partly Romanesque («wer and 
!e and fine vaulting. It contains a Urge fresco, by Grandin, and 
etal paintings, incluiling a Madonna attributed to i^aaaoferratn 

the last pillar to the right).

on, to the right, eontsins same picturesque Hoveo of th> Itenii*-

The castle of Loflhes was surrounded by a wall and moit, 
ll/t M. in length, most of which still remains, enclosiag, at it vue, 
a miciature town. Tbe first turning to the left leads to tlia otJ 
collegiate Cnxmati of St. Oias, a unique building dating ftoia the 
10-i2tb centuries. The W. arm COtlBlatS mainly of a porch, W 
monnted bf a towei, and two square bays, covered by two haft 
pyramidal structures in atono; tbe tower above the crosiing %u 
also a pyramidal toof. Tbe carving around the W, door it ttri 
beautiful. In the porch in front of this doorway is a holy-mln 
basin, formed of an ancient altar, shaped like tbe stump of a oelBBB 
Slid embelliihed t/iSt sculpture. Inside tbe ns^e are heavy pointfj 
arcbes in tbe Southern style, resembling those at Souilluc and d*tjii| 
from 987-lQlO. An interesting feature is that the Noriuan lonnd- 
nroh style (12lh (lent.) has been built ovec and upon these eatUtr 
arches (Ferguason). The flrst choir-stalls (16th cent.) and the dboi- 
iuDi (17th cent.) should be noticed.

Aeattraeied the attention of Charles VII. of France | and it wai very 
iHftlj her patriotic inflnenco that innpired that monareh to carry on hU 
ftraggle against the Engliflh. She left a large sum of money to the monkn 
of Lochea, and was buried in the ehurch of St. Oars. The monks, allegint; 
leninles aa to her past life, requested permission from Louis XL, himself 
koinle to Agnes, to remove her remains. The king agreed on condition 
Alt they also surrendered her endowments ^ but the condition was not 
ueepted by the monks. The tomb was removed, liowcver, under I^mioXVI. 
Opened in 1798, it is now empty. 

One of the oldest parts of the Chateau Royal contains the beau- 
tiful Oratory of Anne of Brittany, wife of Charles VIII. and of 

Louis xn. 

The*DoNJOic, or Kbbp, at the other end of the enclosure, to reach 
which we turn to the right at the church, is still the most interesting 
part of the castle. The attendant who accompanies the visitor ex- 
plains the various points of interest. To the left of the entrance rises 
the donjon proper, a rectangular tower of the 12th cent., 80 ft. long, 
45ft. broad, and 180 ft. high, of which nothing now remains but 
the four walls. Adjacent, to the left, is a similar tower, but smaller 
and in worse preservation. To the right of the donjon is the Mar- 
fe'ef, which contains the dungeon in which Ludovico Sforza, *il Moro', 
Ihke of Milan, was confined for nine years (d. 1610). The walls 
bear various curious inscriptions by him and other prisoners. Far- 
ther to the right is the Tour Ronde or Tour Neuve, built by J^ouisXI. 
This tower contained the famous iron cages in which Cardinal de 
ia Ralue (p. 229), their inventor, Philippe de Cominos, the historian, 
and others, were confined. 

Ou quitting the castle-enclosure, wo turn to the right, to obtain 

> view of it from the outside. We may then return to the Place do 

l&Tour, by the lower street, which passes in sight of the Porte des 

^dellera, a town-gate dating from the ir)th century. 

On the other bank of the Indre, farther up, lies BeaulUu, with an in- 
tereitine abbey-ehurch in the Romanesque style, partly in ruins and partly 
'^ored in the 10th century.

Facthor on Id the earn e direction is La Madeleine (PI. B, 2), a 
cbDrch in the Transition style of the 12th cent., enlarged in tbe 
16lh cent., which well desarves a visit. Its chief claim to attention 
is a magnificent '/food Screen, executed by GioTdnni Gualdo at the 
beginning of tbe 16tb cent., looking almost as if it were hung be- 
tween two pillars, with ornamentation of extraordinary richneas and 
delicany. This church also possessea some line stained-glass windows 
of the ICtb cent., onenf which, in the chapel at the end of the choir, 
represents the creation of the world in very naive fashion. We ■

per day. They are divided into three claaaes: the thermo-mineral, 
the alkaline, and Ihe ferruginous. The Qrst belong to the sodio- 
sulphated waters, but they contain a very small qnantlty of mineral 
inBTedienls and owe their efficacy mainly to their thermal qualities, 
The alkaline springs seem to owe theii oily nature to the pretence 
of silicate of alumina. The waters are chleQy used externally, but 
a fev springs are need for drinking. The waters are effieticious
