This is a digital copy of a book that was preserved for generations on library 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.

PEBFACE. 



Tbe chief object of the Handbook for Korthem FraiiQe, 
which DOW appears for the fourth time and corresponds with 
the seventh French edition, Is to render the traveiler aa nearly 
as possible independent of the serrices of gnides, cotn'miflsten- 
nairas, 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 
acqnalntance with the country described, a great part of 
whfchhasbeenrepeatedty explored with the vievof assnring 
accnracy and freebneBB of information. The Editor begs to 
tender his grateful aoknowledgmentB to travellere who have 
sent him information for the benefit of the Handbook, and 
hopes they will oentinne to favour bim with audi communi- 
cations, especially when the result of their own experience, 

On the Haps and Plans the utmost care has been bestow- 
ed, and It is hoped that they will often be of material serrlco 
to the traveller, enabling blm at a glance to aecertun his 
bearings aud select the best routes. 

A short scconnt of the ordinary approaches to Northern 
France for English and American travellers will be found fn 
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 Vg Engl. M., or 8 kll. 
^ 5 M. [nearly] , See also p. sxiil. 

In the Handbook are enumerated both the first-clasB hotels 
and those of humbler pretension. The latter may often be 
selected by the 'voyageur en gargon' with little sacrifice of 
real comfort, and considerable aaving of expenditure. The 
asterisks indicate those hotels which the Editor has reason 
to believe to be provided with the comforts and coDveniences 
expected in up-to-date establishments, and also to be well- 
managed and reasonable in their scale of charges. Houses of 



a more modest character, when good of their clasa, are de- 
Bcribed aa 'good' or 'very fair'. At the aame time the Editor 
does not donbt that comfortable quarters may sometimea be 
found at hotels that are DnBtarred and even nsmentioned. 
Althongti prices generallj have an upward tendency, the 
average ehargea stated In the Handbook-will enable the tra- 
veller to form a fair estimate of his expenditure. 

To ttotel-proprietora, tradesmen, and others the Editor 
bega to intimate that a character for fair dealing and cour- 
tesy towards travellers fa the sole passport to his commen- 
datioD, and that advertisements of every form are strictly 
excluded flrom his Handbooks. Hotel • keepers are also 
warned against persons representing themsefves as agents 
for Baedeker's Handbooks.

Lanoiuob.' a slight icqaslntaDce with Fiancli is indispensabls 
foithoBBwbadeBiieto explore the more lemote districts of Northem 
France, bat t«UTist« who do not deiie(« from the beeUn tteck will 
generelly flod English spoken at the principal hotels and the nsuel 
resorts o( strangers. If, bowoTer, the; ate entirely ignorant of the 
French langaaga , the; most be prepared occasionally to suhmlt to 
the extortions practised by portsTS, cab-driTers, and others of a like 
class, which eten the dsta famished by tbe Handbook-r^wUl not 
always enable tbem to avoid. 

HonET. The decimal Monetary System of France is extremely 
conTenient in keeping acconnts. The Banqne de France issnei 
BanknoUi of 5000, lOOO, 600, 200, 100, and 50 francs, and these 
are the only banknotes cnrrent in tbe country. The French Qold 
coins are of the value of 100, 60, 20, 10, and 5 A'anca; SUoer coins 
of fi, 3, i, Y^, and '/s &anc; Bronit of 10, 5, 2, and 1 centime 
(100 centimes = I franc). 'Sou' is the old name, still in common 
Qse, for 6 centimes; thus, a 6-fianc piece Is soEoedmes called 'une 
place de cent sobs', 2 fr. = 40 sous, 1 fr. = 20 sons, Vi fi- ™ 
10 sons. Italian, Belgian, Swiss, and Itonmanlan gold coins are rs- 
ceWed at their full value, and the Austrian gold pieces of S and 16 
Clowns are worth exactly 10 and 20 fr. respectively. Belgian, Swiss, 
and Oieek silver coins (except Swiss coins with the aeatad figure of 
Helvetia] are alaocnrrent at i^U value; but Italian sUver coins, with 
the exception of the 5-lira pieces, shonld be refused. The stranger 
shonid also be on his guard agdnst connteifelt eilvei coins, and 
should refuse obsolete coins inch as those with heads of Louis Phi- 
lippe or ot Napoleon without the laurel wreath. The only foreign 
copper coins cnrrent in France are those of Italy and occasionally 
the English penny and haU|ienny, 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. The table at the beginning of the 
book shows the comparative value of the Flench, English, American,

EzFBNBEB. The expense of a tour InMortherDFraDcedepend* of 
coarse on the tastes and habits of the tttTdler) bat it may be stated 
generally that traveUlng in Frence Is D<rt more eipensive than in 
most other countries of Eoiope. ThesedestritLn of moderate reqaite- 
ments, who is tolerably profleient in the language and ayoids the 
beaten track as much as possible, may limit his eipenditure to 
10-12 fr. per diem, while those who prefer driving to walking, cbooee 
the dearest hotels, and employ the services of guidas and commis- 
sionnatres must be prepared to spend at least 20-30 ft. daily. Two 
or three gentlemen travelling together will be able to Journey more 
economically than a solitary tourist, bat the presence of ladies 
generally adds to the espenses of the party. 

Sbaboh. Host of the districts described in this Handbook may 
be viiited at any part of the year, but winter is, of course, the least 
pleasant season, while spring and antumn are on the whole prefer- 
able to snmmei, especially ishen a large proportion of the tra- 
veller's time is spent in the cities and larger towns. The bathing- 
season at the watering-places on the N. coast generallyl asts ftom 
June to September. Excursions in the elevated region of tbe 
Vosges are not possible, or at least pleasant, except in summer. 

PAssFonte are now dispensed with in France, but they are often 
asehll in proving the traveller's identity, procuring admission to 
museums on days when they are not open to the public, obtaining 
delivery of registered letters, etc. Pedestrians in a remote district 
will often find that a passport spares them much inconvenience 
and delay.

Sketching, photographing, or making notes near fortified places 
sometimes exposes innocent travellers to disagreeable luspleioaa or 
worse, and should therefore be avoided. 

Cns'T^u House. In order to prevent the risk of unpleasant de- 
tention at tbe 'doaane' or custom-house, travellers are strongly re- 
commended to avoid carrying with them any articles that are not 
absolutely necessary. Cigars, tobacco, and matches are chieSy sought 
for by the custom-house officers. Tbe duty on cigars amounts to 
about 13i.,0D tobacco to6-10s. per lb. Articles liable to duty should 
always be 'declared'. Books and newspapers occasionally give rise to

which border on the Alps or the Pyrenees, it still affords much 
attractive scenery in Normandy, Brittany, the vaUay of the Seine, 
the Yosges, and the Ardennes. On the other hand it is extremely 
rich in archiCectnral monuments of the greatest importance, con- 
taining an nnpiralleled leries of magnificent Qothic churches at

can always tell which side of a station bla train starts A:om. The

for intermediate stations are usually collected at the 'sortia'; those 
for termini, before the station is entered. Travellers wltMn France 
are allowed 30kilogrammea(66Engl.lbs.J of luggage free of charge; 
those who are bound for foreign coDntries are allowed 26 kilogr. only

Alsatian lines all luggage In the van must be paid for. In all cases 
the heavier Inggage mult be booked, and a ticket procured for itj 
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 vriU be kept in safe custody, several days usuaUy gratis). 
Where, however, a frontier has to be croeaed, the traveller should 
see his luggage cleared at the custom-house in person. At most of 
the railway-stations there is a eomigne, or left-luggage offlce, 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 coniignt, the 
employes vrill generally take care of luggage for a trifling fee. It Is 
usual to give the railway-porters (facleun) a few sous for their ser- 
vices. — It^erpreiai are found at most of the large stations.

Issued on Sat and on the O'es of great festivals are avattable for

festivals are New Year's Day, Easter Monday, Ascension Day, Whit-

Circular Tour Tickets CBUleli de Voyages CiTctdairet') are of 
two kinds, vit. 'h itmiTaires fixes' (routes arranged by the railway 
compauy), and 'Q itmiraires facuUatifa' (routes arranged to meet 
the wishes of individual tcavellers). The former will afl«o be found 
convenient as they are issued at reduced fares, with liberal arrange- 
ments as to breaking the journey, but they are not usually granted 
to third-class passengers. The latter, (bough Issjied for all three 
classes, are now subject to a variety of conditions which practically 
cancel the ostensible advantages, eicept in the case of journeys of 
considerable leug(h. Tourists, before purchasini; one of these 'facul- 
tatif ticked, should carefully study the explanatory sections in the 
'Indicateui', or apply for information to a tourist-agent or other 
authority. Holders of such (ic)<e(B must present themselves at the 
ticket-office of the original starting-place and of every station where 
the journey is broken and apply for an ordinary ticket in addition.

OjolinK is a popular amuBoment in France, and the cyolial's 
wants are BTorywhere fairly woil provided for. CyolletB entering 
France with their machines must obtain from the customs-agent a 
cycle-permit (60 c.}, which must be catried on the person and pro- 
dnned whenavet required. If, however, the oyclisf remains roora than 
three oonaecntive months In France, he muel apply for an offldat 
metal badge, to be Sxed on the iteering-poat. These badges ar« 
delivered (iree on payment of the neceesary feet and the annnal tai 
(6 fr.}. Each cyde most have a badge for each seat, and mutt, 
moreover, be fnrnlthed with a lamp and a bell or horn. Motor-cycles 
pay double tax.

owing to the absence oCpolice restrictions and to the excellent roads. 
On enlerihg the country .the duty on motw-cara must be depoaited

Other places the inns geneially letain theii primitiTe piovinciel 
characteiiatics , which might prove lathei an attraction than other- 
wise were it not for the shunef ul defectivenege of the eaDltar; ar- 
rangements. The beds, however, are generally clean, and the cniaine 
tolerable. It is tberefoTe advisable to freqnent none but the leadias 
hotele in places oft the beaten track of tourists, and to avoid being 
misled by the appellation of OraDd-H6tel', which is often appHed to 
the most ordiaaiy inne. Soap is seldom or never provided. 

The charges of provincial hotels are usually somewhat lower than 
at Paris, but at many of the largest modem establishments the tariff 
is drawn up on q^uite a Parisian scale. Lights are not generally 
charged for, and attendance is often included in the price of the 
bedroom. It is prudedt, though not absolntsly necessary, to enquire 
the charges iu advance. The following are the average charges: 
room I'/r^ fi^M breakfast or 'premier dejeuner', consisting of 'caftf 
an lait', with bread and butter, l-l'/i St.; luncheon or 'second 
diJJeaner', taken about li ajn., 2-3 ft. ; dinner, usually about 6 p.m^ 
2V;-4 b. Wine, beer, or cider (the ordinary beverage of Normandy 
and Brittany} is generally included in the diarge for dinner, eice{>t 
in a few towns in the notth-west. Beer is not oflen met with at 
table d'hSte except in the second-class hotels of such towns as Bou- 
logne and Le Havre. The second dejeuner will probably be regarded 
as superfluous by most English and American travellers, especially 
LIS it occupies a considerable time during the best part of the day. 
A slight luncheon at a caff, which may be had at any hour, will be 
found far more convenient and expeditions. Attendance on the table 
d'h6te is not compulsory, bnt the charge for rooms is often raised if 
meals are not taken in the house, and the visitor will scarcely obtain 
so good a dinner in a restaurant for the same price. In many hoteU 
visitors are received 'en pension' at a charge of 6-7 tr. pet day and 
upwards fpremier d^euner extra). The usual fee foi attendance at 
hotels is 1 fr. per day, if no charge is made in the bill; if service 
is charged, 60 c. a day in addition is generally expected. 

When the traveller remains for a week or more at a hotel, it is 
advisatile to pay, or at least call for the account, every two or three 
days, in order that erroneous Insertions may be at once detected.

X. HiitorioU Bketob. 

Keroringiuia. The. histoiy of Fiance, piopeily so called, be- 
gins at the end of the flftb century of the Chiietian eta, when 
Clovis]. (481-511), son o( Oiilderic, liing of the RipuaiUn Franks 
of Toamai, eipelled the Bomans from Noithein Gaul (oa. 406), em- 
braced Christianity, and united all the Franks under his sway. The 
MtToviTigian Cjiruiat;!, which he fonnded and which took its name 
ilom Mtrovtus, the father of Cbildeiic, rapidly degenerated. The 
Prankish state was seieial times divided among different princes 
of tbe line, and this gave rise to long civil wars and finally to a 
deadly rivalry between Aultraaia, the kingdom of the E. Franks, 
and Neuitria, that of the W. Franks. Tbe family of Pepin, heads of 
the 'Leudes' or great vassals of Austrseia and hereditary 'Mayors of 
the Palace', first of Austcasia, and afterwards also of Neustria and 
Burgundy, look advantage of this state of atTairs to selie for them- 
selves tbe supreme power, after Charles Martel had saved the country 
ftom the Saracenic invasion by the great victory of Poitiers (732), 

Carolingi&na. The first king of this dynasty was PRFrN tiie 
Shokt (It Brep, wbo assumed the crown in 762. His son — 

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

Lours I. [Ee Dibonnairt; 814-840], his realms were divided by 
the Treaty of Verdun (843) between Louii tbe German, who be- 
came Kl[^g of Germany; Lothaire, who got ItaJy, Buignndy, and 
Lotharingia or Lorraine; and — 

Chablbs II, THE Bald (le Cftouue; 840-877), wbo ruled over 
France. He and his three successors, Lottis II. thr Stahhebbe (U 
Bigue; 877-879), Louis III. (879-882), and Cabloman (879-884), 
proved themselves weak and incapable rulers, able neitbei to protect 
their kingdom from the inroads of the Normans nor their regal power 
from eDCTOachments at the hands of the feudal nobles. 

Chablbs III. thb Fat ((e ffros,- 884-867), son of Louis the 
German and himself Emperor of Germany, succeeded Carloman in 
884, but left the care of defending Paris against the Kormans to 
Count Odo or Eudes, Duke of France and Count of Paris, in whose 
favour be was deposed in 887. Odo was the ancestor of the Capetian 
family (see p. iiv). '^Ti.'

Army. Tho whole of Frince la djTided into twenty ftfliiiartf 
Segioni (Rigiom de Corps d'Arm^e},' each under a general of divi- 
rian, wbile Paris has a sepaiate miiitary goTeTmnent. 

Military service is eompuliory on e'ery Frenchman, not declared 
unfit, betveeo the ages of 20 and 45. The Army is divided iota an 
Active Army and a Territorial Army, each with its Keeerve. On 
a peace-footing the former consists of 572,000 men and the latter 
of 800,000 men, forming a Wt»l of 1,372,000. On a war-footing 
these two armies combined rise to a total of 4,000,000. The total 
sum expended on the French army in 1901 amounted to 27,730,000^ 

Natt. For naval piSposos France is divided into five Priftclures 
MajUima, the seats of which are Cherbourg, Brest, Lorient, Rophe- 
' fort, and Toulon. The fleet conalste of about 600 war veMeta in 
commission, including 48 ironclads, 66 cruisers, 236 torpedo-boats, 
and 20 transports. These are manned by about 43,000 men and 
2000 officers. In 1901 France eipended on her navy 13,130,000(. 

JirsTrcE. -Each cantoQ contains a Jnatice dt Paix or Jaitlce of 
thtPtact; each arrondisBement a Tribunal of tht First Initanct; and 
each department i Ctmr d'Anista, or criminal court. Above these 
are 26 Court d'Appet, or courts of appeal, in the principal towns, and 
the Cow de Cassation, or supreme court of appeal, at Puis. There 
are also Commercial, MUitary, and Naval Coarii in places where 
such tribunals have been found desirable.

I and thirteen years. In the budget s mm of about 9,000, OOOt. 
e aet down for the Minletei of Public Instruction, nearly two-thirds 
being allotted to elementBty educstion. 

The Higher Edueatlan is entrusted to sixteen VnivtrHUei, 
which until 1696 were linown as 'aoad^mieg uniierEitaires'. Two 
of these uniiersities (those of Paris and Bordeau*) have the tit fac- 
ulties of theology, law, medicine, science, andlettersi three (Lyons, 
Nancjf, Lille) haVe four faculties, eight have three, two have two, 
and two (Marseilles and Kouen) have one faculty only. There are 
also 'Facultris' o! Frottilant Tktclogy at Parts and Hontauban, and 
fiomon Catholic Imtitutes at Paris, Angers, Lyons, and Lille. 

Secondary Edtieation is ioiparCed by about 110 Lyciei and 290 
CoUigeiCommunaux, including aSlyc^ea and 23 aolleges for girls. 
In addition to tlieee tliere still exist a large nnmber of private 
colleges. 

There are altogether 70,288 Elemtntary Schools. ■ 

The educational work of each department is presided over by an 
Inipecltur d'Acadlmit, and each arrondissement has an Ituptctevr 
(j'/nif ruction Primairc 

In addition to llie aboTe-mentioned schools and coUegea are 
numerous Technical and Special Instilvtioni . 

BBuaioN. All religions are equal by law, and three sects, cii. 
BomanCathoUci, Prolettanlt, and Jtun, receive grants from gOTern- 
ment. The overwhelming m^oiity of the inhabitants of France 
proper or aboDt 38 millious out of 39 millions, are reckoned as Roman 
Catholics. The hierarchy of the Roman Catholic church embraces 
17 Ardibiihopt and 67 Biihops, whose sees are generally (not always) 
coextensive with the departments. The sees of the archbishops are 
at Ail, Albt, Auch, Avignon, Basanfon, Bordeani, Bourges, Cambrai, 
Chambtfry, Lyons, Paris, Rhelms, Rennes, Rouen, Sens, Toulouse, 
and Tonrs, The regular clergy number shout 66,1)00. 

The ProUitanti, who number about 600,000, are divided into 
Lulharani uii Calviniits , both governed by PiesbyteHal Councils 
or Gonsistotiea, several of which together may Term themselves Inlo 
a Synod. The Lutherans possess in addition a General Synod, or 
supreme oouncil. 

The nnmber of Jews in France does not exceed 77,000. 

XII. Maps. 
The best maps of France have hitherto been the Cartel de t'Elal- 
MajoT, or Ordnance Maps of the War Onice. One series of these is 
on a scale of 1 80,000, and includes 273 sheeU, each 2"/ift. long and 
I'/if'-f^de, while another, reduced from the above. Is on a scale of 
1 : 320,000 and consists of 33 sheets (1 for 16 of the others) or 11 
for France proper. These may be had either engraved on steel (3fr. 
per sheet) or lithographed (60 c). The engraved maps are con- . 



mtainonei regioni, but the litbogcaphs 
UBS and ue more i^oqaently bronght up 
ot date. The larger BOate map is also Utaed In quanei sbeeli (1 b. 
engiavadi 30 c. lithographed), whlnh aie intended altimately to 
iupersede the larger sheelB. 

As, howevei, theae maps were eiecuted entirely in black and 
were, besides, becoming antiquated, the War Offlce has undertaken 
two new EerisB, which aie printed in five coloursj one on a scale of 
1 : 60,000 (not now sold to the piibUc) and one on > scale of 
1 ; 200,000. The sheets of the laUer (l>/2 fr. each) aie 26i/, in. long 
and 16 in. wide, and each corresponds to foul of the first-men' 
tioned map. 

Other mapi {all in several colours) are those iseued by the Min- 
istry of the Interior in 1891-04 (1 : 100,000; 80 c per sheet), by the 
Ministry of Publio Works (1;200,000; 40 c. per sheet), Bhowingthe 
elevatlonB, and by the Dtfp6t dee FortUcationa (1 ; 500,000; V% fr. 
per sheet). 

All these maps may be obtained in the chief tourist-reaoTta, but 
It is advisablB to procure them In advance. The following shops in 
Paris hsTe always a fall supply on hand: Berrirt, Rue du Bae i; 
Bittdoin, Sua et Passage Daupbine 30.

The ohnwh of Solre-DoTHc (PI. C, 4), approached by the street 
of the same name leading to the E. from tiie Place d'Aimes, was 
almost completely rebuilt during the Unglish occupation of the 
town, and it has undergone considerable renovation aince 1866. 
The building on the left is a rcBorvoii; the spire is unpleaeing.

St. PiEaBB-i/te' Calais is the industrial and oommeicial part of 
Calais. Its prosperity ts due chiefly to its eitensive manufacture 
of tulle and lace, an industry which was introduced fcom Notting-

The Hartour, eapecially the E. part near the Douone (PI. D, 3), 
preaenta a very busy scene. Boulogne stands nest to Maiseilles, Le 
Havre, and Botdeaui among the seaports of Fiance. Its commercial 
importance Is iDcieaslng, and in 1879 eitenaive operationa were 
begun with the view of enlarging the port, bnt their completion 
has been deferred owing to the lack of funds. Tlthln the port new 
atone qnaya have been built and the harbour deepened to enable 
vessels to arrive and start at low water. The Bauin H flat, a large 
aemlciroalai baain on the left bank of the Ltane, waa conawucted by 
Napoleon to aocommodste the flotilla which was to convey his troopg 
to England (aee p. 10). tbt Building Btipi and the Baiitria defend- 
ing the entrance to Uie harbour are both situated on the W. bank. 
The Wtil Pier stretches into the aea for a diatance.of 765 yds.

Farther along tbe busy quay is the Douane (PI. D, 2), or cusUiin 
honse, near which Is a large salt-warehouee. 

The *Etablis3fmtnt dt Bain!, with its Qarden and handsome 
CcMi'no (PI. D, 1, 2), occupies the rest of the space between the 
E. Pier and the difts. The garden U open to visitors, but iion- 
iubscrlbers pay 20 c. for admission on concert-days (aubscrip., 
sea p. 7). The beach is sandy and very extensive. Tbe Etablisse- 
ment contains a awimmlng-bath for use when tbe sea la too rough 
for bathing. — The foot of the cltlTs, beyond the casino, is skirted 
by tbe Bouleoard Bit. Beuve, named in bonoar of the eminent critic 
(1804-69), who was born at Boulogne. 

Tbe Eujl Pier, or JeUt dt I'Kit [PI. B, C, 1, 2), which eitenda 
B&O.yda. into the sea, is a favourite promenade, especially at full 
tide, when tbe sleameia enter or leave the port, and on summer eien- 
inge. In clear weather the South Foreland lights are visible; tbe 
TevDlving white and ted light to the H. at Cap Gris-Nei ia very di- 
stinct, — On the cliff is the mined Tour tfOdre {'Tnrris ardene' ; 
Fl. D, 1), a Itoman beacon-tower, built under Caligula in 40 A.D. 
— The modem Qotbic church of Bt. FifTre'da-Marini (PI. E, 2), 
with a lofty spire, is in the style of tbe 14th century. 

We now retrace onr steps to visit tbe lawn. Tbe Rve Victor 
Hugo (PI. E, S) and its continuation, tbe Sue Nationale, contain 
the principal shops. Tbe Rue Adolphe Thiers, parallel to the Rue 
Victor Hugo, begins at the Place Dalton (PI. F, 3), in which rises 
the church of St. Jficftoias (17- 18th cent ). This square is the chief 
tcamway-centre. The Qrandt Rue ascends from tbla point to the 
Haute Tille. 

The Mtttevm (Fl. F, 3), in the Grande Kue, contains ethnograph- 
ical, historical, and nataral history collections, some Egyptian an- 
tiquities, and a few pictures, mostly of tbe modern French school 
(open iu summer dally, except Tues., 11-4; in winter on Sun., 
Wed., Thurs., and Sat,). The Public Librarij, on the second floor, 
oonlains 66,000 vols, and 306 MSS. (open daily, except Frid., 10-4).

colossal bnst of Hend 11., by Danid, commemorating the restoration 
of tbe town to France by the English in the reign of that monarch 
(1650). In tbe Boulevard Marletlt, farther on, is a bronze statue of

erected in 1734 on the site of an ancient castle, where the cruaader 
Godfrey de Bouillon was bom in 1065. 

In the Rue de Lilla, which leads from the Hfitel de Vllle to the 
Porte de Calais, is the CfturcA of Notre-Dame (PI. Q, 2), a building 
in the degraded Italian style, erected in 1837-66 on the site of • 
Gotblo church which was destroyed in 1793. The Untem sur- 
mounting the dome is crowned with a colossal statue of the Virgin, 
which forms the most conspicuous point in the whole town. Ex- 
tensive Tiew, comprising the 'doues', the plateau traversed by the 
railway 1o Calais, in the foregroand Napoleon's Column, and in the 
distance, in clear weather, the white cliffs of the English coast, 
Tbe entrance to the staircase is by a door to the right, in the interloi 
of tbe church (adm. 1 tr. ; custodian at the S. portal).

Tbe Chateau (PI. G, 2), in which Louis Napoleon was aonfined 
after the attempted insurrection of 1840, is the anoient citadel of 
Boulogne, and dates from tbe 13th century. It is now converted 
into barracks and an artillery depot (no admission). — The Cemetery 
of the Haute Ville (beyond PI. G, 2) contains the graves of Sir 
Harris Nieolai, Ba$ii Uontague, and numerous other Englishmen.

St. Omer Is an industrial and commercial town with 20,867 in- 
hah., and a fortress until recently, situated in a maish)' district on 
the Ai, which joins the Canal de Nenf-Fosstf near the station. 

Founded in the Tlbcenl.bjBt.Andomsrc or Onier,BiBhop of Tl^ronaniie 
(p. 11), tie town long formed part of Flanderi, andwaa often besieged, pil- 
luged, and borot. li, however, snccCBSfnllj resisted two itiacks by IbB

St. Omer like Bonlogce, win made the seat of n liishop in 1B5B, in place 
families reside' at St. Omat, for purposes of edncation and relrencLmenl. 
Leaving the station, we turn lo the left, cross the Canal de 
Neut-FOEsfi, and enter the town by the Rue de I'Arsenal, on the 
site of the former Porte de Lyzel. A little fvther on we pass the 
arsenal and a square with a bronie statue of Jacjueitne Roiini, 
a heroine of 1710, resembling Jeanne Hachette of Beauvais |^p. 3i). 
Farther on are the ruins of Si. Berlin, tie sole relic of the powerful 
abbey founded In 640 by 8t. Bettin, a mont of Luienil. TheiB 
consist of a huge toner, 190 ft. high, and nine arches, which be- 
longed to a church begun In 1326 and flnished In 1520, on a site 
previously occupied by two earlier churches. Childerlc 111. died in 
this abbey after Ibl, and Thomas Socket aho found a temporary 
asylum here on hla way to Pontigny in 1164, 

The long Rue St. Benin lends hence to the eentie of the town, 
passing, on the left, the CoUigt St. Bertin, and, farther on, the Cotte 
MUilary Hospital, a building erected after various fires (tlie last in 
1826) on the site of a college fonndad in 1592 by English Jesnita 
for tiie training of the Roman Catholic youth of Great Britain. 
Dr. Alban Butler [d. 1773), author of 'Livea of the Saints', was 
director of thU institution, and Daniel O'Connell was one of Its 
most famous popils. On the right, beyond the Soat-Prifteturt, is

so that lodging Id the tovn is not reoommended, more especially as 
the odonis emitted by the harbour at low water and the dose con-

attempt has been made to create a visitors' quarter on the top of the

speculation has hitherto failed and the streets remain unbnilt. 

The only noteworthy edifices in the old town are the MUl dt

Houit dating from the Benaiesance period (higher up, to the right,

atiuctora replete with every convenience and including a small 
theatre (adm., see p. 39). The terrace in front is reserred for sub- 
scribers; below it are the dressing-cabins. In One weather the scene 
is very amusing. 

The site of the casino was occupied Dntil the end of the llth

the exertions of M, Frosmont, who Is here commemorated by a 
handsome fountain. 

On a precipitous white cliff at the W, eitremlty ofthe Plage rises 
t he Casll e (Fl. B, 1, 2), with its maesive walls, towers, and bastions, 
efeiHSaih 1436 as a defence against the English. In 1694, howeier, 
it was unable to resist the cannonade of the English Heet (p. 39). 
The castle is now used as harrachs, and visilors are not allowed to 
pass through it to the flne points of view on the adjoining clitfs.

We regain the town by the Rue do la Barre, whlob is continued 
to the E., to the Quai Henri IV, by the Grande Rue. 

The chnrch o f a Remy (PI. 6; C, 2), not far from the castle, 
in a mixed style m the IRh and 17th cent., contains hu^e^jound

It is the richest of French cities in medisval architecture, though 
the coostruction within the last forty ye&rs of handsome streets liiie 
those of Facie has swept away most of the quaint old hoasce, that 
abounded in the foriuec croaked and picturesque liut not very healthy 
streets. The old walls of the town, which bade deiance to Henry V. 
of England in U15 and to Henri IV of Franca ia 1692, have been 
converted into boulevards planted with trees. — Comp. Theod, An-

Lt Havre, lormwly cahtid Havrt-de-OrSct, from « chapel of 
NotiB'Diime-de-Qrice founded by Louia XII. in 1509, is a iiand- 
soms town with broad streets, but it contains few special points 
of interest. Ita situation at the mouth of the Seine fa eitremely 
advantageous, and, next to Maieeilles, it Is the most important sea' 
port in France (130,19li inhab.). The buildings and tbe commerelal 
prosperity of the town, wbicb Is mainly derived from its ship-bailding 
yaida and sugaT-teflneries, are of very recent origin. 

The Importance of Le Havre dates from the relfn of Francis 1., wbo 
fbrtlfled it In ISIS and endeavoured to make it a harbour of the first rank, 
thencB to carry ant his naval schemes against Engiand. Inlfilfi he assembled 
here 176 a^l, the atUek of nbicb on <he Isle of Wight was, however. 
repulsed. Is 1663 La Havre was occupied by English troops for a sburt 
Uma. Under Btehelien and Colheri the prosperity of tbe town rapidly 
IncreatBd, and In 1691 the English UbbI mada a determined bnt nnsuccesf 
tul attack on the new rival of Sngliah commerce. In 1796 Admiral BIr 

ot the citadel, wu taken prisoner by the French.

Fecamp U a town with ID, 381 inbab., situated, like nostoftbe 
other towTiB and villagea on this coast, in a small valley ranning 
inland from the sea. Tbe S. end of the town is about I1/4 M. from 
tbe little harbour at the N. eitrBmity of tbe Talley. 

According to Ihe legend tbe name It derioed from Flnas Caudal, 'field 
of the Fig-tree', from the fact tbat the >ea vaibed u|t on the coaat here the 

Blood (dee below], lis poa^tloo on the BogLiah channel and its posscAfiion 

of Hormandf and in the waia between J£nfiland and Franca. Us ancient 

onlT one of the famous monaaterlea arNormaod; thai stood to tbe^.E. of 
the Ecins. 

The Chnreh of St. Etiermt, to the left of the station, dates from 
tbelStboentury. The S. portal is fine; the W. tower is modern. The 
tnterior is embeUtshed with modern stained glass and painting. 

From the Place Tblere, the centre of the town, we follow the Rue 
Alexandre Legros to the abbey. Tbe Abbey Church, a most interest' 
Ing relic of the ll-16tli oeni, conceals an interior of great beauty 
■nd grace under a somewhat unattractive exterior. The central tower 
is, however, stately ttaongh simple, and 00 the S. side is a fine 
portal of the I4th century. 

IBIIBIOE. In lie JVoM, whicl is remarkable for itg great length, we 
notice lie modern carved oak pulpit, with iH numerona carved auiuettei! 

by n tastcleaa canopy, the other embellished with bns-reliefa which 
may be inspected from the ambuUtory. II is surrounded with a handaome 
railing. The two pillars in front of llio choir are adorned with slalues 
and hlgh-rEliefs In elaborate riames. The S. transept contains a curious 

Eroup of panted statues, representing the Desib of the Vliglo, eiecated 
J a monk in Olid- Adjacent are some smaller groups of Hgurea engaged 
In prayer and a ciborium of the 15lh century. — The Apiidal Chapaii are 

the 8rd chapel to the right is a flne frieic, formed of 18 high-reliefs of 
tbe lltb cent., representing scenes from tbe lives of Christ and the Vi^n. 
, The llh and 6lh chapels contain theaotblctombsof abbots ofF^camp, In 
tbe Bth or Zady CJlapcI are line stained glass of the ll-ldlh cent., bas-reliefs 
on tbe altar, and some beautiful wood-carving. The 7(h chapel has a 
t6th cent. door. ~ Behind the high-altar is a machle ciborium of (he 
16th cent., reputed to conti^n some of the 'Precious Blood' (see above), 
and still attrscta numerous pllgHma. In the ambulatory Is a line burial- 
Dbaoher In the Benaiasance Kyle. The H. transept contains a Calvary, a 
some carvings of scenes from the life of Christ, and an 
Ji of 1667. 

The remains of the abbey, adjoining the N. side of the church, 
are now occupied by the mttl de VilU, buUt in tbe 17th century. 
The Muiee Municipal in the interior, containing a gallery of modem 
pictures, is open on Sun., Mon., Thurs., A Sat,, 12-6 (%i in wtn-

No. 108 in ae long street leading from the Place Thiers to the 
beach is the distillery of Bln/dictint, a well-fcoown Uqueui-, first 
made by the Benedictine monks. The handeome building, with > 
Eenaissance tower, was reboilt after a fire in 1892. Visitors are

ships drawing 20 ft. at all statee of the tide. Fecamp is one of the

Etrttat, one of the moat fashionable watering-places on the N. 
coBBt of France, is a small town, with 1944 inhab., situated, like 
most of its neighbours, at the foot of lofty cliffs, here 300 ft. high. 
It ie surrounded with pretty villas and attractive country-houses, 
but It possesBcs no harbour. Elretat is especially affected by artist' 



>nd lIlerKTy men, who are attracted by its pktare«qae aad cuiioas 
•itaation, bat tbe$« have bronght in their train enongb of the heh- 
lonable vorld to render tbe cost of living bere coneidersbl; bigher 
then at lesi pretentioue but equally comibrtable vaterlng-placM on 
tbe same coaet. 

The Bailway Station, beyond wbicb is tbe Grand-Val (see below), 
IB at soma distance from the beach. On the way to the latter we 
pass the Romanesque Church. The Btach is protected from the Eea 
by a sort of ambankment of shingle ; and a terrace, with the Cotbio, 
hae been conetructed. The batbtng-establishcnent is to tbe right; 
Qie left part of the beach Is used by the flsbermen for hanling np 
their boats, and for their 'Ciloges', i.e. old boa ta turned upside down 
4ad need as huts for storing nets, etc. 

The aiffi at Etretat are among the most interesting on this coast. 
Both the Falaiit d'Amont (lo the right) and (he Falaise d'Aval (to 
tbeleft)arepi«lc«dbyPorlet,woinby tba action of the sea, and the 
aame cause baa produced yarious curious pyramidal and needle- like 
formationa. The ascent is arduoos, especially in warm weather, bnt 
there are almost no other walks in tbe neighbourhood. At low wa- 
ter the cUDs may be reached by the beach , thongb the path to the 
Falaise d'Avsl by this route Is faiigDing. It ie batter to arrange to 
return by the beach, if tbe tide will permit. 

The Falaitc d'Amont is ascended by a long flight of steps , be- 
ginning on tbe beach. On the summit are a modem cbapel and a 
aignsl-posL Near the Utter a plctaresque bat rough path, to the 
left, leads down to a short tunnel, at tbe other end of which is an 
iron ladder (Impassable by ladies) descending to tbe beach. 

To reach the top of tbe Paliiiit SAval ws pass behind the H6tel 
Blanqnet and folloff fltst the Hue de la Valette and then the lele- 
giaph'Wires. The aspect of the cliffs, stretching as far W. as the 
Gap d'Aiitifer, Is highly plcturesi^ne. A small grotto at the (op of 
one of the needle-rocks nearest to Etretat is dignified with the name 
of the 'Ohambre des DemoiseUes'. Another ea-vern below, near the 
'porte', which we pass if we return by the foot of the cliffs, is called 
the "Trou t TUomme', In about 15-20 min, after leaving Etretat 
we Teach another rocky gateway, known as tbe Afortneporle, whence 
■ zigzag stairvray descends to the beach. Many people will prefer 
to come thus far in order lo bathe at liberty, instead of paying for 
one of the atifling bathing-boxes at the Oaslno. 

In tbe.Orand-Val, the valley to the right of the railway. Is the 
Pamlt , a promenade to which admission is gained by payment. 
Farther on are the Frottatant Chaptl (service in summer at 10 a.m.) 
and the new FuUia Qardens.

bronze statue, by Carpeaui, of Atiloinf Wrdttaa (1684-1721), the 
painter. The fonr Bgnree surrounding il represent Italian comedy. 
— In the same sqnate rises the church of 5t. Glry, a Gothic edlHca 
partly dating ftom the 13th cent,, though the elegant tower is 
modem. The fine wood-carvinga in the choir (partly 16-17th cent.) 
illustrate the life of St. Herbert, the founder of the Preemonstra- 
lensian order. In a straight line front this point is the handsome 
PUsct d'Armea; the timber dwellings here date ftom the period of 
the Spanish occupation (ITth cent.). — The *H6ul dt VUU, in tbis 
Place, is tbe most Interesting building in Valenciennes. It dates 
from the 17th cent., with the exception of the imposing facade,

the flnt clias, widi a ciudel said to be Tauban's masterpiece, and 
is BllQated in a well irrigated and fertile plain on the DeUlt, a nafi' 
gable river vlth which numerous canals are connected. In 1851 the 
population numbered 76,000 eoula, but since the extension of the 
fortiflcatlons in 1853 numerous handsome streets and squares have 
sprung up, particularly on the 3. side of the town. The Musfe (p. 90)

FiDm the Etatioii the handBome Bue FaiSherbe leads stcaigbt 
to the Grand Theatre (PI. F, 3], whence the Rue det ManneUen 
Tnne to the left to tlie Qrnnde Place, the centre of the old town. 

The Bosne (PI, F, 3), a brick and stoue ediflce, with shops on 
tbe groundflaor, v&a begun under the SpunUh dominion in 1652. 
The court (apply to the coTicierge if closed) la surrounded by arcaded 
galleries and contains a bronze Etatue of Hiapoleon I. by Lemaire 
(1854). The Column in the centre of tbe Place commemoratea the 
gallant defence of the town against tbe Auetrians in 1793. On tbe 
Bide of tbe Place next theSuedesManneliersiises the Orand' Qarde, 
built in ni7, and now occupied by the military staff. 

The HAtel de Tills (PI. F, 4) wis erected in 1847-59 in the 
Renaissance style, tbough the S. wing dates ftom Louis XVs reign. 
It occapies the site of a palace of tbe dukes of Burgundy and con- 
tains the Biiliolhiijut Communale (nearly 100,000 vols.; open on 
Week-days 9 a,m.-10 p.m., San. 9-1) and a Mmfe of Engranmgt 
and Copies (open Sun., Wed., & Frid., 10-4). 

RetQrnIng to the Grande Place, we follow the Sue Nalianate 
(PI. E, 0, 4, 6), to tbe left, to visit the new town. To the tight of 
tbe church of 8t. Stephen (18th cent.) and the Military Hospital 
(1605), once respectively a chapel and a college of the Jesuits, is 
tiie Sqtiart Jtintiea, with a monument to Deirousseaui (d. 1892), a 
Lllte poet. The Bne Nationals now intersects the Boulevard de la 
Libertfi (see below) and leads to the Place de Strasbourg (PI. D, E, 
4), in which is a Monument to A, Testetin, organizer of the national 
defence in the H, of France in 1870-71. Farther on is the church of 
the Saeri-Caurf a new and elegant structure in the Gothic style, of 
which the tower is not yet completed. 

The handsome BovUcard de la Llberti (Pl.D, E, F, 3-5), which 
forms the boundary between the old town and tbe new quarters built 
in the Parisian style, begins at the Esplanade (p. 96) on the N.W.. 
and leads to the S.E. to the extensive Place de ia Ripublique (P!. 
E, 6), in which rises an •Ejturjlrian Staltit of General Faidhtrie, 
by MerciS. To the N.W. of the Place rises tbe spacious Prifecturt 
(PI. E, 4, 6), dating from 1865-70, to the W., the HStel dei PoUet, 
and to the S.E., the Palais det Beaux-Art), near which is the Frm' 
iaini Vallon. 

The Falaii das Beauz-Arti [PI. F, 5), a striking edifice, designed 
by Bfrard and Delmas, was opened in 1892, hut represents only 
aboat one-half of tbe original plan. The collections which it con- 
tains are among the most important in France, the 'Pietnre QaJlerj 
being especially rich in examples of the Flemish and Dntch schools. 
The other collections include drawings, sculpture, antiquities, and 
9 of ethnography and industrial and decorative art. The

Stdan, a town with 19,360 inhah., formerly strongly forti- 
fied, is famous for the battle and capitulation of Sept. Isl and 
2nd, 1870 Caae p. 129). Of no g^at antiquity, the town at one 
time belonged to the Dukes of BonlUon (p. 130), and the revolt of one 
of these noblemen in 1691 led to the siege and capture of Sedan by 
Henri IV, Sedan is well and regularly built, and carries on a pros- 
perous mannikatare of fine cloth; but it ts uninteresting to the 
stranger. Within recent years the fortifications have been removed, 
and their place largely taken by handsome bouses. 

From the station the Avenue PhUoppoteaui, crossing tbe Meuse 
and traversing a new suburb, leads to the Place d'Alsace-Lonaine, 
at the S. aitcemity of the town, in which are situated the War 
Momimmt fur IS70, tbe Cottigt, and the Etabliutmtnt Craisii, 
aabraciug an asylum and a small Mus^e (adm. on application). 
Thenca tbe Avenue dn CoU»ge leads to the Place d'Armes, in 
which rises the Parish Chunk. Beyond the chtirch is the Donjoa, 
of the 15tb cent., tbe only relic of the ancient CasiU. The Place 
Turenne, farther on, is embellished with a bronze statue of Manluil 
TuTtnnt, erected in 1823. Tlie marshal (1611-76), bom at Sedan, 
was tha ion of Henri de La Tonr-d'Auvergne, Viscount of Sedan and 
Dnke of Bouillon, an ambitious noble who took part In many plots 
against Cardinal Rlehelien, and was Anally forced to purchase his 
life by yielding up to Loois XIU. the barony of Sedan. — Crossing 



to Mctt. SEDAN. jg. Itoult. lay 

tie Mense, »e ag»in enter a new quarter, beyond which are the via- 
duct uid BubDTb or Torcy. From Torcy the Rue Widehncouit leads 
back to the station. 

The best point from which to visit the battlefield of Sedan is tbo 
Tillage olBcueilUs, about 3 H. to the S.E. (cab, Sl/s'^f^-'t tramway 
from the Place Turenne, 10 or 30 c. ; atatian, see p. 130). The road 
leads to the S. from the Place Nassau, at tlie end of the Avenue 
Philip pots aui. 

The BKtUfl of Badac, funghi Sept. lei, 1870, raged moal llercely in tlie 
neighbuurlioddofBueillea. Uar^hal MacKahon, acting under ocdera from 
Paris dictated b^ political ralhec tliiD milltaT; cenlldeTalions, and endeav- 
onrlng to march rrom the camp it Cb^tons (p. W) to the leKcr of Ba-

to 10 a.m. Baiellles and La Honcelle were llie cbief points of attack. 
Step b; slen the flgbtlng nas foreed farther to tbe "S., to Didgny and 01- 
vonno, uniil flnally, about 2 p.m., tbe rigbl wing of the Saions, who

from theW., effected a junction at 111;. and tlie ring of Heel was cloied

lantry of the cavalrr, wbo dasbed Ibemselves .igainBt the solid German 
lines in one desperile cbarge after another, could turn the tide of battle. 
When a Qerman battery opened iire upon Ibe town from tbe helcbts of 
Frdnois (p. l^S), there was nothing for It but surrender. Napoleon 111., 
who was at Sedan, Ihoufb not in command, delivered his sword to Ibe 
EIng of Prusslai and 83,000 men ancluding 1 marshal, 39 generals, and 
3230 other ofllcerB), with 10,000 horses, 1000 cannons, TO mitrailleuses, and 
an enormous quantity of stores fell into tbe hands of the victors. The Oer- 
mani are said to have lost 8000 men and tbo French 17,000. Tbe victory 

up there the French army of llO.DOo'men, wbo baJ no tim'e to recover 
from the disorganiiition of tbeir previous retreat. The Qerman allack 
was ^ded by Ike doable change of command in the French camp. Mae- 
Uahon was wounded early In Ihe day, and was succeeded by Dncrot, 
who was In turn replaced by Da Wimpffen. 

Near the beginning of the village of Bazeiltes, lo tbe left of the 
road, is the email tavern A laDetnilreCaf louche. The name recalls 
the fact that thla was the last French position in tbe village, 
desperately defended by tbe marines nnder Martin des PailKrea 
against Von der Tann'i Bavsriana. The inn, wMeh was the only 
house in the whole Tillage not burned down, now contains a small 
Afuieum of relies ot the battle (fee), and one of the rooms on the 
first floor is still preserved In the same state as is depicted Sn A. 
de NeaviUe's painting of 'The Last Cartridge', the scene of whith 
Is laid In the house which has borrowed Its name. 

The street to the right of the road leads into the village, pairing

with fine stsiaed glue of the 13t1i century. The finest part of tie 
churoh Is, however, tbe beautiful FUmboyaDt Cloiittts, tti the N. of 
the DATe, dating from the 16th century. Theie sie enclosed on both 
Bides by six double arcades resting on very light and graceful columns 
and sejiaratedfFom each other by email truncated columns. The clois- 
ters give OD a small sqnaie, thioagh which we may reach the chaicb 
of St. Etienne, vii the Rue Lafayette (right). Rue Miehitel (left), 
and Rue LioiivUle (right). 

•St. EUennt, the former Cathedral, is noteworthy for Its size 
and its harmonious proportions, and still more for its bemtiltil W. 
front, which is Qanked by two light and graceful towers, terminating 
in oclAgonal lanterns. The choir and transepts (both with fine stained 
glass), date from the 13th, the facade from the 15th, and the nave 
from the 14th and J6th centuries. The •Cioislera which adjoin thieflne 
church on the 8. were built in the 13'14tb cant, and are larger and 
of an even more perfect style tbaii those of St. Qengoult. They form 
a rectangle, 75 yds. long and 55 yds. broad, and consist of 22 sections 
with four arches, each with foar small clustered columns and two 
small isolated columns, besides the archway to the court. — The 
Chaftl entered from the cloisters contains a large altar-piece, ulth 
figures in full relief, representing the Adoration of the Shepherds. 

The large and imposing H&tel de Ville, formerly the bishop's 
palace, bnilt in 1740, contains the public library and a small museum.

from Che 15th. — The tunnel (to the left], 550 yds. long, by which 
the canal is carried beneath the town, and the bridge (to the right) 
by which it crosses the Moselle, near the railway- bridge, are strik- 
ing examples of engineering skill. The scenery at this point Is, per- 
haps, the most beautiful on the entire journey.

is distinguished In consequence by the harmony of its style and 
proportions. The Tarioua chapels were added at various dates. The

CherbouTg, a town with 42,938 inhab. and a factreBS of the flrtt 
class, is the third navai ttarhonr of France. It owes its impoTtince 
tfl its aitnation at the N. eitremltj' of the peninsula of the Cotentin 
(p. 159), in a hay embraced between Cap LSvi on the E., and Gap 
de la Hague on the W., and directly facing the coaet of England,

Flaaili. in mi, tbe Engliib fleet under Lord Bone landed a force Here 
nnder Qeaeral Bligh, wlio deitroyed the foitffi cations snd burnt the Bhlp- 
pinc and all the nsTal itorei, thoagh he left tbe town and Iti Inbahltantl 
nnmoleBted. In April, 1311, the Dae de Berrl landed here, and In Aug., 
1630, Oharlei X., the ex-kinf, embarked at Cherbourg for England. 

The town, moat of which is modern, well-built, and clean, is 
eomparatirely uninteresting. On quitting tbe station (PI. E, 6), the 
visitor finds himBelf at tie E. end of tbe town, and at tbe S. end of 
the Commercial Barbour, which is situated at the mouth of the 
IHvettt and the Trotehte. This harbour, of quite secondary import- 
ance to the naval port (aoe p. 162), comprisea two basins and an 
entrance-channel, 660 yds. long, Sanked by granite breakwaters. 
Large qoantitles of butter, eggs, and poultry are exported hence to 
England. 

Tbe RotnsTBAS of Oherbonrg, which lies in Icont of the two 
ports, has a total euperfldes of 4 sq. M., but as certain parts of it 
are too shallow for large ships at low water, the total available 
anchorage is about one-fifth of that, or about 600 acres. Though 
sheltered on three sides, this roadstead is naturally exposed to the 
fall force of gales from the N., and Vauban, the great military en- 
gineer, seemed almost to be flying in the face of natare when he 
proposed to establish a naval port here. The efforts to protect the 
anchorage by means of a 'digue' or breakwater, placed about V/2 M.

ing a eloping face to tbe eea on each side. On tbis base rests a mass 
of masonry, 30 ft. bigb and 30 ft. tbick, rendered practically mouoUthic 
by tbe use of hydranllc cement. Tbe works cost upward of 2,680,0001. 
ViEllorE are permitted to land on tbe Qigae (boats, see p. 161], 
wbicb Is fottlfied with four forts and twelve batteries. Tbs excur- 
sion is one of tbe pleasantest at Cherbourg, and vlBitors enjoy an 
opportunity of viewing at close qaartere some of tbe men-of-war 
whieb are usually lying in tbe toads. Tbe view from tbe breakwater

channels at tbe ends of tbe Digue are commanded by forts on tbe 
mainland, as well as by detached forts on islets. Tbe defences of 
the town are completed by a chain of detached forts on the sur- 
rounding heights. 

The HAViLHiKBouR, oti>ocli/ard(Pl. B, C, 1,2, 3), is strongly 
defended on the landward side by a special line of redoubts and a 
ditch, wbicb practically render it quite separate from tbe rest of 
the town to tbe 3.W. It Is entered by way of the Kue de I'Abbaye, 
beyond tbe Colonial Munument (PI. D, 3). Foreigners are admitted 
only Tith an order from the minister of marine. Tbe visit tabes

On the S. side of the town is the noteworthy modern church of 
Wol«-Dam(-ifti-Vo(u(Pl.D, 5), in the liomanesque style, with two 
towers and spires at the W. end. It replaces an earlier chnrch of 
the 12th cent., built In fulfilment of a solemn vow taken by Queen 
Matilda of England during a storm. 

In the pretty PaUie Qarden (PI. F, 6), to the E. of the station,

IVoucilb-rar-tfcr, pleMantly sitiuted >t the mouth of the Toti- 
fuel, is one of the most frequented WBtering-pUce» on the coast of 
Normandf. The season Usta from July to Octoher and is at its height 
in August, when living here is eitremely expensive. Fifty years ago 
TrouviUe vii a hnuible fishing-village with a small hiibour; now 
it has 6137 inhab., and the heach and adjacent slopes are covered 
with handsome villas and country-houses. 

The BaUiBcy Station (PI. C, 5] is situated on the left bank of 
the river, between Deauville and TrouviUe. We cross a bridge to 
reach the tatter. The Harbovr (PI. B, G, 3-5) is mnch used by 
fishing-boats and also carries on lome trade in timiier. The church 
on the hill to the right of the hetboar, Notrt-Dame'dta-Vietoirts 
(Pi. 6 ; C, 4), is a modern erection. The FUh Market (PI. 8 ; C, 4), 
near the end of the quay, preseoU an interesting spectacle when 
the flshing-hoats coma in. Thence the important Rue des Bains 
leads to Nolre-Dame-de-Bom-SteouTS (PI. 6; C, 3), another email 
modem church, with s fine facade and a Renaissance tower. Beyond 
the ftah-market rUes the HSUi dt Vilit (PI. 4 ; C, 3), in the style of 
Louis Xin, to the left of which is the Place de la Cahotte (ferry, . 
seep.lTl). 

The *Bea(A (flagt) of Trouville (PI. B, C, % 3), stretching from 
the harbour to the Hotel des Koches Noires, a distance of about 
2/3 M., is one of the finest in France and during most of the day in 
the season thronged with holiday-makers and bathers in fashionable 
and attractive costumes. It is bordered for nearly its entire length 
by a broad paved or boarded promenade. It has been pithily des- 
cribed as the 'Sammer Boulevard of Paris'. 

The Casino ff 1. 1 ; C, 3), known also as the Salon, \ large edifice 
on a terrace overlooking the beach, rebuilt after its coriDagratioii in 
1903, offers all the attractions common to fashionable institutions 
of the sort. Theatrical performances take place thrice a week, and 
a grand ball U usually given on Saturdays. — Another small Cttfjno 
was opened in 1892 ou the Prominade Pier (PI. C, D, 1), at the other 
end of the beach ; adm. to pier 10 c, gratis to passengers by the

DeavoiUt, which shares the railway-station with Trouvill*, may

plan was never carried out and the town presents the appearance of

Lion-sar-Mer is tbe leading watering-place on the W, coast of 
Calvados, though it is less pretentious than Boulgate or Cabourg 
and has no casino. The whole coast to the W. of Caen, though a 
little ahbgly, is very suitable for bathing, and at places it rises in 
ciiffs of some height. At certain poijits the end of the season is apt 
to he accelerated by tbe smell of the sea-weed cost 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 ate 
few distractions at these watering-places beyond those offered by tbe 
sea and the beach. The batbing-boies are large enough to be let

Avrancht*, one of the oldest towns In Normandy, with 7384 in- 
hab., is pletnTeeqaely sitoited on a hill on the left bank o( tbe 8(t, 
commanding an eiquisila and justly famed 'View of the Bay of St, 
Michel. The direct footpatJi to the town aicenda to the right from 
the Gtation, but carriages muat make a detour to the left. 

Tbe name of the town is deiived from tbe AbrincaUH, wbo are men- 
llooed br PllDT. Tbe Cimlai Abiincatvm was one of tbe imporiant c[liea 
in tbe SEcond Lupdunfniin In Ihe Olbcenlurj. Thebisbopricot Arranchea 
was probably founded in (be etb oenlury. From 1431 ItU lUO the town 
wu occupied bj tbe KnelEflb, AvrancbeB suffered severely at tbe bands of 
tbe HuguenolB) >nd in 1691 il BlubboniJy resisted the Iruops of HEnri IV, 
on Ibe ground tbat he wu a Proleitant. Jn July, 1639, tlie revolt of (he 
JfuPUdi, or armod rIainE of tbe peuanlry against tbe 'Oabellfl', broke out 
at ATranchea. The rlBing wu put down with releoUeu cmelly. 

Airantbes at one time possessed a beantlful Nocman-Gothic 
cathedral, but this wae destroyed in 1790, and only a few «bapeleee 
rutns in front of the Sous-Prtffeotwre ate left to recall it. An inscrip- 
lion on a broken column indicates the spot where Qenry II. of 
England did hnmble penance in 1172 for the murder of Thomas 
Becket. The Police commands a flue view. The Bi$bop'i Oardat, 
to tbe tight, farther on, contains a marble statue, hy Cartellier, of 
(lentTal VaUiabert (1764-1806), who was bom at ATtanchee. The 
PalalA dc Juitlce [the old Bishop's Palace) , which stood to the left 
above the garden and contained a small mus^e, was eniitely butned 
down in 18D9. A little to the S. is Notre-Dame-dti-Champi , the 
principal church in the town, recently rebuilt in a miied Gothic style 
of the 13-14tb centuries. The stained windows are fine. The church 
of 51. SatuTnin, a few yards to the left of the apse of Motre-Dame, 
Is built in a similar style, llie interesting Jardin dei fVan(ci(good 
view) is entered from the W. side of tbe square In front of Motte- 
Dame. The church of St. Gtrvait , nearer the centre of the town, 
dates from the i7tb century.

Quitting the station and crossing the river, we soon reach the 
Place Mitheau, named in honour of two famous architects of Dreni, 
who DonriBhed in the 16th and 17th centuries. 

The Church of St. Pierre, a Gothic ediQce of the 13-15th cent., 
shows traces of the handiworli of the M^t^zeaus. Only one of its 
two towera has been finished (in the 16(licant.) and the exterior la 
much weathered. The Lady Chapel and the chapels of the aisles 
contain eome good old stained glass (reetored). The former has alio 
a One organ-case, designed in 1614 by Clement Mdtrizean. 

The H6tel de Ville, which Msambtes a large square donjon, 
was built between ibOfl and 1537 and illustrates the transition bam 
the medixval to the Renaissance style. The facade on the side 
farlhest from the Place is Qanked by two projecliug turrets at the 
angles, and is embeUished with blind arcades and elaborate csiving 
ronnd the door and windows. The staircase and tbe lanltiDg in the 
interior should be noticed. A clock of the 16tb cent, a few works 
of art, and the small library are also shown to vidtors. 

The route to the Chapelle Boyale crosses the square In boM of 
theUStel deVilie (to the left, the.Ba<piIa£ CAap<J, of the ITthcent.) 
and follows tbe Grande Hue and the Rue des Tanneurs (leading to

follow a lane behind the Palais de Justice, and finally pass through 
a small gikteway to tbe left Tbe remains of the CattU, part of wbicb 
is seen as we ascend, are insigDiflcant. The Chapelle occupies part 
of the outer ward, wbkh has been converted into a fine public prom-

the pile la heightened by four balustrades which run ronnd the ont-

Granville, a small fortified seaport, with 11,667 inhab., at the 
mouth of the fiosq, is said to have been originally founded in 
the 12th century. The English foiUBed it in 1640 but lost it 
the following year. They bumed it in 1695 and bombarded It 
In 1808. It consists of two distinct parts, vii. the lower town, 
the larger half, betiveeo the station and the harbour, and the upper 
town, perched on a steep rock extending into the sea and surround- 
ed by the old fortifications. The street beginning at the station 
leads to the Couis Jonillle, whence the Rue Lecampion descendF, 
to the left, to the Harbour, which is freqnented by numBroua fish- 
ing-boats and a few coasting- vessels. A street diverging from the 
Court Jonville a little farther on leads lo the beach (p. 186).

The Chateau or Palais National, reached by the Rae Nationale 
and the avenues in the park beyond the ornamental water, consists 
of a number of incongruoas buildings, surrounding an old cienelated 
tower. Neitber exterior nor interior is of any special Interest.

of water in the latter is diversified by several Islets (boat 60 c. per 
he. for each pers.). To the right beyond this lalie Is the Pare An- 
glais, which we reach most directly by skirting the left margin of 
the lake and passing through a magniflcent avenae of Louisiana 
cypresses, said to be nnique in Europe. The English Park contains 
streams of water, a chalet, and a hermitage. To the right of this 
park, to the N.W. of the lake, is a Dairy constructed by Louis XVI,, 
with a temple and an artiUcial grotto. Beyond, at the top of the 
avenue, is a Farm, where Napoleon I. kept the first merino sheep 
broQght from Spain to France. To the right, iMtween the. Pare

in 1194, and the cathedrttl in its present form probaUy dates mainly 
from tlie Hist half of the 13th century. The principal tower vas 
almost wholly reliailt in 1507-14. Ita vast dimensioni, the hugs 
blocks of stone employed in its conetmction, the simplicity of its 
design, and the grandeur of its conception combine to invest this 
cathedral wltli an air of the moBt impressive dignity. 

The largo ♦JT. Facade, which Is somewhat soTere in generaJ 
aspect, is plercecl by three doorways lavishly adorned with scolp' 
tures, representing scenes in the life of Jesae Christ, with statues 
ajid statuettes of Prophets, the Elders of the Apocalypse, and other 
Biblical characters. Above the doors are three pointed windows, 
surmounted by a handsome rose-window, above which again runs 
an arcade with sixteen large statues. Over the arcade rises a gable, 
containing a flgorB of the Virgin between two angels and bearing 
on its apex a figure of the Saviour. The tower nart of this facade 
dates from the 12th. the rose-windojr frqm the mh, and the higher 
partrnsto- tBI'13-llth centuries. The statues fn the doorways are 
stiff and "Byzantine In type,' vrith Sat faces, short arms, elongated 
bodies, and ungraceful drapery; but they are, nevertheless, • 
distinct advance on anything previously achieved, and mark an 
epoch in the history of art. The facade is flanked by two fine 
*Taiven, rising to a height of 350 ft. and 375 ft. The older of the 
twoTTo the 8., beautifnl as it is| is thrown into the shade by the 
richly adorned spire added to the N. tower in 1506-14, which is 
described by Fergnsaon ('History of Atchlteclure') as the most 
beautifully designed spire on the continent of Europe, surpassing 
those at Strassburg, Vienna, and Antwerp in elegance of outline 
and appropriateness of design. 

The 'Sidt Forlals, which are much more elaborately decorated 
than those lii tm~W. ?ronl, date from the 13th cent, and are preceded 
by porches 5f .the l i(h canlnrv. The sculptures on the N. portal 
represent scenes fromjh^jjfjjjf the Vi^in, anttffi os'e ontBe 'STth e 
LaEt_Judgjaept. The nobis style of thelarge statues, tbe wonderful 
expressiveness of the statnettes, the variety and life of the bas- 
reliefs, and the finish of tbe mouldings combine to range these 
portals among the most splendid examples of monumental sculp- 
ture. There are two towers flanking each of the side-portals and 
one on each side of the beginning of the apse, but none of them 
have been carried above the springing of the roof. — The CSiapelle 
St. Piat (16th cent.], adjoining the chevet to the right, is entered 
from within the cathedral by a. staircase. To the left of tbe chevet 
is the Biihop's Palact (17th cent.).

LaviA, the capital of the department of the Mayatne and the 
seat of a bishop, is a town with cotton manufactories and 30,3613 
inhab., situated on the Mayenne. It was taken by Talbot in 1428, 
and changed hands several limes during the ware of the League and 
La Vendue. 

The Kue de la Gare, lo the right of the station, leads to the Rue 
de la Pail and the Font-^tuf, whence a Une view is obtained, on 
the left, of the cathedral and castle, the Pont-Vieui, eto., and, on

bridge we reach the Place de rH6tei-de-Ville, embellished with a 
bronze statue, by David d' Angers, of Ambtaist Pari, styled the 
'Father of French Surgery', who was born near Laval about 1510. 

Thence the I!ae de l'H6tel-de-Ville leads to the left to the Cattle, 
which consists of two parts, the 'Old' and the 'New'. The Old Cattle, 
a sombre-looking ediSce, now a prison, Is seen to most advantage

the GaliTic de Clnduitrit (18th cent.) and the attractiTe-looking 
Muitt del Beaux Arts (1891-96), containing a Email collection of 
paintings, by Flandrin, leahey, Lenepvea, Meissonier, etc.

A well-bnilt Euadern quarter lies between the railway-station 
and the town proper on the left bank of the Vilaine. To the left of 
the Avenue de la Oare is the spacious Champ-de-Mari (PI. G, i), with 
the departmental War Monitment for 1870. At the foot of the 
A>enue stands the Lyceum (PI. C, 3), an impoelng structure in the 
style of the 17th century. It occupies the site of a Jesuit college, 
of which the only relic now left is the Egliet Touisaatt (Fl. 0, 3), 
a little behind the oniTeTsity. Farther on, on the quay, is the Palais 
UhioeriitaiTe, partly occupied by the *Hds^ (Pi. C, 3], which in~ 
eludes various icienCiflc collections and one of the flneet proTincial 
picture gallerig^ in France (open on Sun. & Thurs., from 12 to 4 or 5,

At the end of the Qdsi de l'Un!Teieit€, to the left, rises the 
Chiimber of Comment, a Urge structure in the RehaiEsance etyle, 
only partly completed. 

The Pont de Berlin, to the right of the Quai de I'UnlTersitd, and 
the street forming ita continuation lead to the Place du Polaii 
(PI. B, 0, 2, 3), one of the principal open Bpaces of tho town. 

On the N. side of this Place stands the FalEiii de Jnitioe (Fl. 
C, 33, the finest secular edifice in Rennes, erected in 1613-&4, by 
Jaeques DehroBse, the architect of the Luxembourg for the Parle- 
ment of Brittany. The somewhat heavy facade is preceded hy statues 
of D'Argentr^ (1519-46), La Chslotais (1701-85), Gerbier {1726- 
88), and TouUier (1752-1836), four eminent Iswyere of Brittany. 
Several of the rooms in the interior are adorned with paintings by 
Cioypel, Joiisenet, Gosse, Jobb^-Du-val, and other well known artiits 
(apply to concierge, at the end of the corridor on the right ; fee). 

To the S.W. of the Place Aa Palais lies the Plact de la Mairie 
(Pi. B, 3), the centre of the tramway- Bystem (p. 206). The H6tel de 
VUU here, rebuilt by Gabriel, the architect of Louis XV., after the 
great fire of 1T20 (p. 206), is in the form of a semicircle between 
two pavilions and is surmounted by a tower ending in a bulbous 
dome. The Thtatrtf on the opposite side, is also in a semicirculai 
form, but presents its conTei side to the Place. — Adjoining the 
Hfitel de ViUe is the Library, with 80,000 vols., 600 MSS. and 
nnmeroug incunabula. 

To the N.W. of the H6tel deVille is Si. Sauvtur (Pi. B, 3), a 
church of the 18th cent., containing a canopied high-altar, ■ hand- 
some pulpit, a bas-relief of the marriage of the Virgin (altar on the 
g.), and sUtues of 3S. Peter and Paul. 

A little farther on rises the Cathedral (PI. A, 3), ■ buUding of 
ancient foundation but dating in its present form mainly from the 
Idth century. The facade is in the cliasica) style. The interior is 
adorned with patntiugs by Le HrinafF and Jobbj-DnTal. The last 
chapel in the 9. aisle contains a fine allar-piece, in carved and 
painted wood, executed in the 15th century. 

In the lane opposite the cathedral rises the Porte MoTdtlai$e 
(PI. A, 3), an interesting relic of the mediaval fortifications of the 



. A little to the Tigbt, fnrthet on, is tbe Church of SI. Slephm (PI. A, 3), 
of the nth ceot., coDtalDlog seTeral etaCues by Barr^, sujntd-Bltai win- 
dows b; Laitrgru^ and ft paldting by Jovrjfm^ 

Wb now follow the Rue de la Monnale (PI. A, 3, B, 2). The fourth 
turning on the left brings ub to a Bmall e^uare with a bronze statue, 
by DoliTet, of ieperdrt, maire of Rennes during the Terror, who had 
the couiage to resist the ferocious Cairrier (p. 244), Farther to the K. 
is the large uoflnished modern Gothic church of tlatn-Dame-dt- 
Eonnc-ffouutWe (PI. B, 2J, whence the Rue St. MeUine leada Ifl the 
E. to the ehucch of Notre- Dame-en-Satnl-ltielalne (PI. D, 2), an 
abbey-church of the ll-i3th cent., with a tower surmounted by a 
moderD statue of the Virgin. The chief inteiior adornments are the 
monument hy Valentin (near the entrance], the Qotbic high-altar, 
and the choir screen in carved wood, all modern. 

A litUs fatihei on, to the right, le tbe Ihabor (Fl. D, 2), jiait of Die 
garden of Hie fornier Abbey de St. Uelaloe, and now tbe chief npen-alr 
resort of BenneS! It la embellished with a Benre of Liberty and with a 
statue or DaguescliD, the cetabrited Conn^tablo of France, who was bom 
near Rennes In 1311 or 1330 (i. 1330). On the E. this promenade ie ad- 
joined by the Jordtn da Plaaui (PI. D, !), which Is open to the public 

From the Place St. Melaine we return by the Contour de la Motte, 
passing the modern ChapelU da JUiisionnotm, the Prtfeciure, and 
the promenade of La Afollt, upon an ancient moat-hill. The Hue 
Victor-Hugo leads thence to the right to the Place du Palais, while 
tbe Roe Gambetta descends straight to the Vilaine, which it reaches 
beside the new iVniveniti (PI. C, D, 3), with a faculty of science. 
On the opposite bank begins the Aienue de la Gare (p. 206). 

A walk may be taken, on tbe left bank of tbe Vilaine, (o tbe CAdHnu

The tovn U built on two looky bills on the hanks of the Penfeld, 
which forms the naval harbour, the chief part being on (ho left banS. 
Three roads lead to the town from the Station {PL E, 3), wliich lies 
outside the fortifloatians. That straight in ftont conducts us in a few 
minutes to tbe Flmi du Oiamp-de-BataUU (PI. D, 3), ^iS the Forte 
Foy, the Kue Voltaire (left), and the Bue de la Rampe or Rue 
d'Aiguillon (right). The two last streets lead on heyond the Place 
to the Em dt Siam (PI. 0, 3), tbe principal street in Brest, while in 
the other dliention they end at the Cours Dijot (see helow). — The 
Avenue dela Oare, to the right from tbe station, leads to tbe upper 
end of the Rue de Sism, which descends thence to the naval har- 
bour. — The street to tbe left from the station passes between the 
commercial harbour and the Cours Dajot to tbe Place du GhJteao. 

The Commetciat Barbovr [Pi. E, 3), of recent construction, in- 
cludes at present four hasins, with a total area of 100 acres, with two 
moles, and a breakwater '/a M long. The Coutj Dajol (PI. C, D, 4) 
is a handsome promenade laid out in 1T69, and embellished with 
statues of Neptune and Abundance, by Coyievox. It communicates 
with the commercial harbour by flights of steps. Tbe * Vitvi of tbe 
roadstead thence is particularly fine. 

Brait Rcadi, In which leveral men-of-war are usual1)> anchors], are 
formed of an irregular baj, 11 M. long and 7 M. wide, almost landlocked

difflcnli, but the Goolet onie paeied, ships find themselves in perhaps the

the town IS called iI , 

derneau falls ; Ihe other is the Bras rfs CAflntnulta (p. 559), which receives 
the ChiteauUn or Aulne. 

At the W. end of the Cours Dajot, on a rock overlooking the 
harbour, risas the Cottle (PI. C, 4), an important military work, 



modified by VaubBiiAroai a construction of the IdthceDtory. Visitors 
■re admitted on application at the entrance (at 10 a.m., 2 p.m., or 
4 p.m. ; fae), but there is nothing of great Interest in Oie interior. 
The *View bom the Tour de Brest, on the side next the haiboni, 
is, however, Tsry flne. Including the donjon, the eaetle has eight 
tovera, the original conical looti of vhtch were replaced by Vanban 
with platforms, on which can . . ^ • 

dungeons are shown to the ri 
tale of honor or Buttering. 

The *N».T».L HiBBouB (PI. B, 4, 3, 3] is a sort of canal, 3 M. 
long, averaging 100 yds. in breadth, and from 30 to 40 ft deep, 
excavated in great part from tbe living rock, at the mouth of a 
small stream called the Fenfetd. It has been made accessible from 
tbe castle by levelling the ground. It ie most conveniently reached 
from the centre of the town by the Rue de Siam (PI. 0, 4). 

The 'Swing Bridge {Pont ToumanI; PI, B, 4), »t the end of 
this street, constructed in 1861 to connect Brest with Recouvrance, 
is one of the Urgest of the kind in existence. It is 125 yds. long, 
with an average height of upwards of 65 ft. Tbe two Iron wings of 
which it is composed tain upon tower-shaped piers ; four men can 
open or shut tbe bridge In 10 minutes. The visitor will hardly fail 
to be struck with tbe combined boldness and lightness of this re- 
markable structure. A bridge-of-boats for foot-pass an gets crosus 
the harbour below tbe swing-bridge. 

Perhaps the best general survey of the naval port is obtained 
from the swing-bridge, though as the canal forms a ssries of enrvea, 
concealed by the rising banks, nothing like the whole of it can be 
seen from any one point. The animation and variety of the port, 
with the immense magazines, workshops, barracks, etc., lining it 
on both sides, are more easily imagined than described. No one 
»t all interested in naval matters should fail to endeavour to obtUn 
permission to inspect the dockyard, which employs between 6000 
and 9000 workmen. Foreigners, however, Teq.uire a special per- 
mission ftom the French Admiralty, 

The towJi offers few other points of interest besides those al- 
ready mentioned. The principal church, 51. Louii (PI. C, 2), though 
founded in 1638, has only recently been finished. In the ambulatory, 
to the left, is a Qne 13th cent, tombstone with a recumbent statue, 
discovered under the floor of the church In 1698. 

Near tbe upper end of the harbour, on tbe righl Himi, la the SlaNliu-

The railway -ststion is situatBd in the suburb of Kocabey, near 
the harbour, tetween St. Malo and St. Servan, and about '/j M, from 
each. To reach the former, we turn first to the right, and then to 
tbe left, between a wet dock and the inner leaeiTolr. The tramway 
route (b min. longer) traverses the Siiion, an embankment 220 yds. 
long and about 150 ft. broad, which connects the rock on which the 
town stands with the mainland. 

The i/oriour (recently completed), in ■ shallow bay between 



222 Rovte 30. ST. MALO. From Renna 

St. Htdo and St. Servan, consists mainly of an ontei basin, a tidal 
harlioar, two wet docks, and an inner t«eeiTOii. 8t Halo Is the 
twelfth port in France in point of Importance; It imports timber and 
coal, exports provisions of all kinds to England, and takes a consider- 
able sbare in the Newfoundland cod-ftshery. 

At the end of tbe Sillon next tbe town, to the right, is the 
modest Casino (free adm.), in front of which is a bronze Statut of 
Chi^aubriand (p. 221), by A. MiUet. 

As we enter the town by the Forte St. Vincent, with its flnely- 
scnlptnred coats- of- arms, tbe CailU, dating front the 14-15th cent., 
and now used as barracks, stands on our right. It consists mainly 
of foac towers, one of which ma; be ascended tor the sake of the 
view. An almost e^aally extensive and mora varied view may, 
however, be enjoyed from the 'Sampart) enclosing the town, which 
date chieny from the 16th century. Visitors should not omit to make 
the circuit of the (own on the ramparts, both for the sake of en- 
joying the curious appearance of the town, and also for the view of 
the bay, which is finest when the tide is full. The bay is dotted 
with fortified ialeta, one of which, the Qrand-Bty, 560 yds, from 
tbe town, contains the simple tomb of Chateaubriand (d. 1848). 
St. Halo is remarkable for ^e great height to which the tide rises. 
Ordinary tides rise from 23 to 26 ft, spring-tides 48 ft above low- 
watar mark; and at low water an immense tract is uncovered, so 
that it is possible to walk dryshod to the Grand-Bey. — On the 
Quai de Dlnan is a statue of Robert Sareoaf (_17T3 - 1827) , the 
privateer, by Ciiavanlez (1903). 

Most of the Etreels are steep, narrow, and tortuous. From the 
small Plaet (Sialeaubriand, in front of the castle, we ascend to the 
centre of the town by the Rue St. Thomas or the Rue St Vincent 
(opposite tbe gateway), and then turn to the left. 

The Pariih ClaiTch, formerly the cathedral, Is built mainly in 
the Qothic (15th cent.) and Renaissance styles, bat some parts date 
from the Transition period, and the elegant spire ia modern. 

Tbe best part of tbe iDt^rloi ii the eholi, -which bag a Bne IrlFoTlum 
Bad three nlDdows filled with moderD itiined glut. The Ivaiy ntaie of 
Ohriet traclDg the palpIO, a modem tamb to the right, and other seulp- 
tureg are well executed, aed lercral of the pictarei alio are of lome valuej 
the Utter, however, are bidly li^hled. 

The street nearly opposite the front of the church leads to anotbei 
(mall Place, embellished with a marble Statue of Dngaay-Trouin 
[p. 221), by Moiknecht — The lUul de ViUe, also in this sqnaie, 
contains a small Masit (open to the public on Sun. and Thnrs., 
1-4) and a LlArarv (open on other days only, at the same hours). 

Tbe 3ea-bnlhing EitabUshment lies beyond the castle, to the E. 
of (he town. Tbe beach consists of &ne sand, and slopes gradually.

small harboarB at the month of the Banct: the Port dt Solidor and 
the Port St. Fire, between which ri^es the 14th cent. Tour de Solidor 
(Tisilors admitted; tIow). These harbours are separated from the 
bay of Lt> Sablont by a locky promontory, crowned by a foit on the

Dinan, an ancient town of 10,634 Inhab., witb cnrions and pictar* 
eaqne honses and streeta, is finely eltnated on a beigbt on the left 
bank of the Bsnce. 

Quitting the atation, we follow the Rne Thiers to the fine promen- 
ade known as the Brandt-Fouft. Farther on, beyond the little Place 
Daclos, tbe Ptlili-Fouis diverges to tbe light. On both sides con- 
tiderablB remains of the Ramfortt of the 13th and 11th cent, are 
BtUl extant. Near the end of the Petlta-FoH^a is the ch&tesa (see 
below). The submb to the right is largely Inhabited by the English 
colony (abont 350). 

Ftom the haiboor we ascend t« the viadact, whence we reach tbe 
centre of the (own, and visit the promenades and tbe chateau last. 
— In the Place Duclos is the H6tel dt VlUe, a modem bnUdlng, 
contuning a small but Intereettng Mu$it, with collaetiona of all 
kinds (antiquities, coine, fnnerat monuments, objecta of natural 
blatory, etc.). — The street to the left leads to the PUtee Dvgaeielln, 
embellished with an equestrian statue of tbe ConniuAU Ihiguticlin, 
who recaptured tbe town from the Engliah in 1359, by Frjmiet 
(1903). The Place occupies the site of the field in which he defeated 
In single combat an Engliah knight, named by the Breton chronidets 
'Sir Thomaa of Cantorbtry'. — Farther on, to the right, Is the CcMU, 
now a prison, the donjon of which (1 12 ft. in height) la nsnally shown

to Tisltorg OQ applicttlon. It ia partly built into the ancient valts 
and balongs to tbe same «poch (14th cant.]. The exterior o( this an- 
cient pile is best viewed fiom the Petlte-Fossfs, a Ihtle faithet on. 

The Rne do Ch&tean leads to the most pictuiesqiie parts of the 
town, sklitlng the hase of steep locke, tiU It reaches the banks of 
the Bance, the vooded channel of which offets Tatious attcactive 
TieWB. The river Is spanned by an imposing stone 'rfarfuji, 270yds. 
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 chntch of St. Suuueur, in the nelgbbonrbood, to the left, is 
a curious edifice, the right side of which is Romanesque, the left 
Gothic. Tbe Romanesque portal is nnfortunately in very bad pre- 
servation. The right wall U adorned on the exterior with arcades 
and mouldings, and a tasteful Gothic chapel was added at the third 
bay in the 16tii century. There Is but one aisle, consisting ot the 
Qothic part of the W. arm. Tbe cboh is also Gothic. The holy- 
water basin, supported by Caryatides, to the left of tbe entrance, 
dates from the 12th century. In the N. transept is a stone marking 
the spot where the heart of Bertrand Duguesclin is buried; and in 
one of the choir- chap els, on the same side, are two tasteful Ootbic 
credences. — The cemetery of this church is now a Public Oarden 
(•View). 

The narrow street opposite the left transept is continued by tbe 
Rue Croii-Qnart to the old Bite du Jtnual, leading to tbe Forte da 
Jertunl, one of the most curious parts of the old town, Ootbic out- 
side and Romanesque within, A little to the left is the PorteSt. Malo, 
a similar but less interesting structure. 

The street leading to tbe S. from the Porte St. Halo debouches 
in the Eue de I'Horloge, neat the 16th cent. Tour de I'Horloge. 
Short of the tower, on the right, is tbe Place des Cordeliers, beyond 
which is the Grande Rue, leading back to the H6tel de Vllle. 

8t. Malo, to the right, near the latter, is a large church of the 
l&tb cent., the W. arm of which was rebuilt in 1865-65. In the 
interior is a large modern painting by Archenanit, representing 
Christ trinmphing over Death and Sin. Tbe handsome high-altar 
has bas-reliefs from the life of St. Mate, and a statue of that saint, 
by Savary.

5aumur, m old to\ni with 16,223 tnbab., is eitasted on the left 
bank of the Loire and on an island la Ibe riTei. At the end of the 
16th cent, it w»s one of the ehlef Btrongholfls of ProWatantisin in 
France, and it was the eeat of a Pcoteltant nnivereity previous to 
the relocation of the Edict of Nantea. At that time (1685) ita 
prosperity greatly declined, owing to the eipuUion of the Hugue- 
nots, but it began to revive in 1T68, when a iarge Cavsliy School 
was fonnded here. Its sparkling wines have some reputation. The 
town proper ia bai-ked on the S.E. by a hill crowned with wind- 
milts and a Caitlt of the lltb, 13tb, and 16tb cent, (uninteresting). 

Leaving the Oare d'Oritfans, we cross the rivet and tbe Island, 
on which are the ruins of a ChSteati of the Quttn of SkUy, built by 
Ring Ren£ of Anjoa (15th cent.). We enter the town by the Place 
de la Bilsnge, at the ends of the Rues d'OriSans and de Bordeaui, 
which traverse the whole town. To the left stands the handsome 
Theatre, built in 1864. Behind it is the Gothic Hotel de Ville, 
mainly of the 16lh cent., containing a smaU musenm (open on 
Snn, * Thura., 12-4; closed in Sept.; entr. in the street to the 
left). Adjacent (No. 3, Rue Cours 9t, Jean) is the entrance to 
the pretty Oiapelte 81. Jean, in the Romanesque and Gothic styles, 
with fine vaulting (when cloaed, apply at 26 Rue St. Jean). — Tbe 
Rue St. Jean leads to tbe left to tbe church of 5(. PUne, a building 
of the 13th cent., with a facade of the 17th century. The S. transept 
ends in a Bne Romanesque portal. The beautiful cboir-etAlls date 
tmm the 15th century. The sacristy contains two fine pieces of 
Upestry (16th cent.). — About Va H- to the E. is Noln-Dame-dei- 
Ardttiiert, a domed church of the 16-17 th cent (interesting interior), 
at the foot of the Bntte des Moulina (view of the Loire). 

The quarter at the foot of the hill, beyond St Pierre, contains 
the Prottitant Church (in the cUa^cal style), the CoUigt, the 
Jardin d« Ptantei, and Notre-Dame-de-Nantilly, The eitorior of 
thia church is uninteresting, with the exception of the portal, which 
belongs to the original edifliie but has been apoiied. The interior, 
however, partly Romanesque (ll-]2th cent.) and partly Gothic, 
la noteworthy and contains some important works of art (bas- 
relieh, tapestry of the 15-18tb cent, an oratory made for Louts XI,, 
etc.). — The street opposite this church passes near the Qare de 
1'Etat and ends near the Pont Foucard, which we cross to reach 
Bagneux (p. 235). To re-enter the town we keep to the right. 

The EcoU de Caoalerie, a handsome building near the river, a 
Uttle below the town, contains about 400 pupils in training as 
cavalry ofDcers and riding-masters. EqnesBlan eihlhitloDi QOk-

Eombre appearance, but in the 19th cent, it underwent an almoBt 
complete transformation. Its ancient ramparts were replaced by 
handsome houleTards adjoined by modern suburbs, new streets were 
opened up, others were widened and etralgbtened, and nnmerons 
large edifices, quays, and bridges were constrnctad.

tiaTersing the town before lie confluence. The commeTce i.Dd la- 
^Qstry of Nentes h>ve long rendered it one of the meet flooiiihlng 
towns in France, and with regard to population it ranks seienth in 
the country. Its harbour has latterly lost mach of its importance, 
the approach to it being too natiow for the large ihips of modern 
times, but in 1881 the authorities began the constrocUon of a lateral 
canal, which, it is hoped, will restore the town to the rank it has 
lost. Sugar forms the principal article of commerce in Nantei, and 
the town contains seiera] large redneriee. Tobacco, sardines, and 
preeened meats of all kinds are also among the chief industrial 
products, and the outskirts of the town are thickly sprinkled with 
Iron-works, ship-building yards, and factories.

less than fuur months, until at last he himself was denounced, recalled, and 
sent in liie turn to the scaffold. 

Nantes is nowadays a handsome modern town, but the abeeuce 
or main thoroughfares makes it difficult for the stranger to Bnd 
his way. Its most characteristic features are the numerous bridges 
OTer the different arms of the Loire and the Erdre, the harbour, 
and the fine bouses of the ISth cent., wbich line the q^nays. Thers 
are, however, comparatively few buildings of interest. 

The railway from Orleans is prolonged along (he quays on its 
way to Bretagne (R. 34). Near the station, to the right, is the Place 
Ducheisi-Anne (PI. F, 3), where the Cours St. Pierre (p. 247) and the 
new street described at p. 216 begin. On the flight of steps ascending 
to the Cours is the Vtmumenl PourlfDrapeauCfortheQag'), abronze- 
gioup by e, Barean, erected in 1897 in memory of 1870-71. 

On one aide of the Plaoe rises the CmUa (PI. F, 3), an imposing 
building of very ancient origin, but In its present form dating mainly 
from the end of the t5th century. It bad formerly seven tevets, bu

beat part at ■ da; In a imBll receia bahloil a chimney on tbe tbtrd Boor. 

We continue to follow the qnays, passing the end o( the Rue 
de Straebourg (p. 247), and cross the canalised Erdre at Its Junction 
with the Iiolre. Farther on, in the Place du Commerce, stands the 
Exeliange (PI. D, 3), bnilt in 17S2-1813. Beyond it, in the small 
Place de la Bourse, a statue of Colontl de-ViUiboU MurtuiUp.'iA'i'), 
by R. Veilet, was erected' in 1902. To the left is the little lit 
Ptydiau. We neit roach the Gate de la Bourte (PI. D, 3 ; see 
p. 1U3), and the Quai de la Font, skirting the hurboui. The Edict 
of Nantes is said to have been signed in the Maiton dcs TonrtlUa 
(No. 0). Mo. 17 also deserves (ttention. 

The Aue Jean-Jaequet Roui'tau (PI. D, 3), which leaves the 
quay between the Exchange and the Oare de la Bourse , leads to 
the Place Orastin (PI. D, 3), the centre of flie town. In it stands 
the Grand ThfStTt, buUt in 1783, hut several times restored since 
then, with a Corinthian colonnade enrmounted by the ftgnres of 
eight Muses. The vestibule contains statuea of Gornellle and MoliAre 
by Holfanecht and the anditorium has a Sue ceiling-painting. 

To the S.W. of the Place Oraslin extends the Coars de la Si- 
pnhliqne or Camhronnt (PI. G, D, 3), a promenade embellished with 
a bronie statue of Omeral Cambronne (1770-1842), a native ot the 
environs of Nantes, erected in 1848. On the pedestal is inscribed the 
answer he ta laid to have given at Waterloo : 'The gaard dies, hat never 
Bnrrenders'. The statue was eiecnted by Jean Dabay, a native artist. 

A little to the N. of tbe Coars Cambronne, in the Rue Voltaire, 
stands the Ecole des Scieneei (PL C, 3), erected in 1831 , and nsed 
first as a mint and then as a court of Justice. Its handsome facade, 
In the dassical style, with a sculptured pediment, is turned towards 
the Place de la Honnaie. Besides the law-courts it now contains 
an important ■naenm of ITBtural History (Fl. G, 3), open to the 
public on Sun., Tues., Thars., and holidays, 12-4 (closed in Sept.^.

with connecting stalicaseB, owing to the fact that the atieetl which 
it joins are not on the same letel. It Is adorned with statuettes by 
Debay and medallions by Oiootaeis, both natiies of Mantes. It 
emerges on the other side in the Rne de la Fosse, near the Bourse; 

The Rue Gr^biUon ends at the FUce Bo7«Ie (PI. D, E, 3^, an- 
other scene of great animation, embellished with ■ large modern 
'Fountain, in granite, byDrioUet, witii thirteen bronze statnee and 
statuettes by Ducommun and Groataers. The marble status on the 
top represents the town of Nantes; the others, in the hssin below, 
represent the Loire (seated on a throne) and its ptindpal affluents, 
the Sivre, Erdre, Ohei, and Loli. 

In the lieinity rises the handsome modem chuidi of Bt. BinolM 
(PI. £, 3), designed by Lsssns in the Gothic style of the 13th cent., 
with doable aisles and an imposing tower, 278 ft. high. The moat 
sBriking points of the interior are the Iriforium, below which mns 
a beautiful band of foliage; the high-altai, in white maible, with 
bas-reliefs and a ciborium terminating in a loft; pyramid ; the gilded 
choir-screen; the pictmes, by Delannay, in tbib transept-chapels t 
the stained-glass windows; the altar in the Lady Cbspel; and the 
tomb of Hgt. Fonruier (d. 1877), bishop of Nantes, in the left aisle. 

TheBuB de Feltre, to the N. of the rhurch of St. Nicolas, descends 
to the Erdre. Thence it is to be prolonged through the old quarter 
on the opposite bank(PI. E, F, 3) towsrds the Place Ducheise-Anne 
(p. 244), forming with de Rue du CaWrire an important new artery 
of trafSc. 

At the end of the Rue Lafayette, which diverges from the Bus 
du CatvaiTc, is the Palais de Jnstioe (PI. D, 2), a large and hand- 
some bailding, dating from 184&-D3. In the centre of the fatade 
is a colonnade surmounted by an arcade, with a fine group by Sue, 
of Nantes, lepresenting Justice protecting Innocence againat Ciims, 

We now return to the church of St Nicolas, descend to lh« 
Erdre, and cross it, in order to reach the Basse- Grande-Rue on the

the whole E. pait of the town in a Etraight line fiom N. to S. 

A little farthei to the E. stands the CeitlisdTal of St. Pierre 
(PI. F, 3). Tbe rebuilding at tbia church, dating from the Roman- 
esque period, was undertaken 1n the 15th cent., but was never 
finiahed, and the smalt 12th cent, choir long stood in incongruous 
combinaiioi) with the more ambitions W, end. The work, liowever, 
was resumed and was completed in 1892. The facade is Qanbed by

Beualsssnce style, executed In 1507 by IficMl Colomi. The tomb, In black 

of Justice, Prnde'aee, Temperance, and lower at the four comers, and is 
surrounded by two rows of gixleea nlebea containing statuettes of upostles, 
saluti, and mourDeri. Justice, to the right, ii a portrait of Anne of 
Brittany, daughter of tbe deceased, who erected tbia monumenl In tbelr 
honour; Prudence has two faces, one of a lonng woman and one of an 

Nantei (1B06-B9). This Imposing modem munument is Ihe joint work of 
the architect Btlllt and the sculptor Paul Duboii. Below a canopy lies a 
white marble flgure of the general; at tbe comers ace bronie statues of 
History, Cliarity, MlliUry Courage, and Faith, and bas-reliefs run along 
the Bides. 

The Street to the left of the cathedral leads to tbe Plaoa 
Lonii Bdie (Fl. F, 3), in the middle of which is a Column, 90 ft. 
high, animounted by a Statue of Lotiit XVI, by Molknecht. Thia 
Flaee lies between tbe Court Si, AndH and the Cmut St. Pierre, 
laid out as a promenade in 172B and fHimisbed with other mediocre 
Etatuee by Molknecht. The Cours St. Andr^ extends to Che left to 
the Erdie, while the Ooora 91. Piene descends to the right, passing 
behind the choir of the cathedral, to the Place Duchessfr-AoDe and 
the Quai de !a Loire, near the chateau (p. 244). 

In the Rue du Lyc^e , to the E. of the Couis St. Piene , is the

Loritnl, s fortifled miliUry and commarcinl port, with 44,640 
inbab., le situited od the ScotIT, near Its Junction with the BUvet. 
It iru fonnded, under the name of I'Orient, in the 17th cent, by ths 
powerful Compagnle des Indea Orientales, nho eBteblished their 
ehip-boilding yarde beie. When the company oollapsed after the 
capture of Bengal by the British in 1763, the dockyards and woika 
wore purchased by the ttate. 

The town is well built but uninteresting. The Bus Victoi-Hassd, 
diverging to the right from the ptolongation of the Oours Chazelle, 
leads to the Place /fAUaci-Larraine, the principal square. The Rue 
des Fontaines, quitting the latter at its left angle, condueta os to two 
amatler squares, in one of which is the Church of St. LouU (18tb 
cent.) and in the other a bronze Sbitue 0/ RisJon, a young uaval lieu- 
tenant who blew up his ship in 1827 to prerent Its falling into the 
hands of Greek pirates. To the left of St. Louis is a small Municipal 
Muteum (open on Sun. and Thnrs., 12 to 4 or 6; on other days on 
application). The Coars de la Boia, to the right of the church, leads 
to the o^mmeicial harhour (see below); in this promenade is a 
*8tatut of Victor M-iiif i;l8!H-84), the coropoaer, by Merci«. The 
Rue du Port leads from this statue to the dockyard. 

To Tiait the Dockyard, with the eiception of the part near the 
Place d'Atmes, which is always open, foreigners require a special 
permit fVom the Ministry of Marine. At the entrance is a Signal 
Tovcr, 136 ft. in height. The arsenal is interesting, though not so 
important as that of llrest. There are also workshops at Caudan, on 
the left bank of the Seorff, which is crossed by a floating bridge. 

The Commerciaf Harbovr lies at the S. end of the dockyard, 
between the town proper and a new suburb. It includes a dry dock 
and a Soatlng-dock. The trade is chiefly connected with the re- 
qnirements of the dockyard. 

The Boadtltad, beyond the two harbours, Is formed by a deep 
and safe bay, 3Vi fd- long, with a fortifled island in the middle. 

The first side-street to the left beyond the commercial harbour 
brings us to a square with a Statue of Britevx (1806-58), the poet.

(Gcand-H6t. de U Plage), with an excellent bitbing-beacb, and ter- 
minates at (O'/^M.) La Trinitf-sur-flfer, a small seaport, with oyster- 
beds. The road thence to (Q'/a M.) Loomariaquer (carr., p. 269) 
crosses the river One'i by a [VaM.)bridge and enters the Peninsufa 0/ 
Loemariaqner, which bounds the Morbihan on the N.W. (see p. 254). 

Loomariaquer (HUel Marchand), a small seaport on the Mor- 
bihan, has in its neighbourhood perhaps tbe most remarkable me- 
galitbie monuments in France. The chief of these are the Man>- 
Lud, a dolmen of unusual size, the interior of which should he in- 
spected; the Men-tT-Hroeck, a menhir originally nearly 70 ft. high, 
now overthrown and broken; and the two dolmens known as tbe 
Dol'ar-Matc'kadoitiren and the Manl-Butual. All these are passed 
on the way fi-om Carnac to Locmariaquer. Keyond the village is 
tbe Mani-et'Hroeck, a tumulus with a cavern (key at the Matrie,

num. In the middle agee it was the capital of the Comtesde Dunois. 
It has been frequently burned down, on the last occasion by the Ger- 
mans in 1870. 

The avenue in front of tbe station and the Bub Charlies, 10 the 
left, lead to the Piaee du Dlx-Huit Octobre, with tbe HOtelde Ville 
(small Mus^e) and a modern Renaissance Fountain, by Gaullier. 

Tbe Eae de Luynes, to tbe right of tbe Hotel de Ville, leads to the 
'Caitle, an Interesting ediflce, shown on application to the concierge. 
The original fortress was ererted in the lUth cent. On the pointed cliffs 
ahoie tbe I<oir ; tbe donjon, a huge round tower, 150 ft. high, to tbe 
left of the courtyard, was rebuilt in the 12th cent.j tbe chapel and 
adjoining facade were added by the celebrated Dunois, commonly 
called tbe 'Bastard of Orleans', in the 15tb cent, ; while the fa;ade on 
the right side, with its elaborate eitemal ornamentation, dates from 
the 16th century. The Interior contains a restored chapel, a Renaie- 
eance staircase, and tbe 'salles dee 400 gardes'. The Tiew of the castle 
from tbe banks of the Loir (descen^njthe left side of the castle] is 
highly imposing. 

The small neighbonring square contains a mined Gothic chapel, 
and farther on , as we descend on the other side of the castle , are 
some curious old Houset. Opposite the end of the Hue da Cbatean 
is a bouse witb a carved wooden Benaissance facade ; and at the end 
of the next street is a stone facade of tbe same period. 

The adjoining Egliie de la MadtUinc (12th cent.) belonged to an 
abbey, of which tbe buildings to the right and left, now occupied 
by a hospital and the courts of law, also form part. Tbe Romanesque 
arches in tbe right aisle and the choir-stalls are worthy of notice. 

Tbe Rue de la Madeleine brings us back to the Place duDii-Hnit 
Octobre, whence the Bue Gambetta leads to the left to the Church of 
8t, Valirim, a buitdlDg of the 12tb cent., witb a stone spire and a 
Bomanesque side-portal. Beneath the organ, in the interior, is a 
fteeeo of tbe 14th cent., sadly injured. — The came street, by which 
we may return to the station, leads to the Cemetery, in which are a 
rained Gothic Chapel and a Monument of 1810.

style. Tba Lycit itself, an ancient college, founded by C^sai, Due

— Faither on is the Flaet St. Uarlin, in which rise an elegant

Omeral Bochambcua (1726-1807). On the right ie a ooriooa timber- 
boDse of the 16th century. 

Tbe *GuuGCH of tub Tsinity, &n interesting edifice of the 
12-16th cent,, on tbe left side of tbe street, formerly belonged 
to a Romanesque abbey (12th cent.), the picturesque remains 
of which are seen in the square in front. In front of the portal rises 
a magnlflcent Belfry, in the Transition style of the 12th cent., 
crowned by a stone spire. The interior of this tower should be 
examined by those interested in architecture, especially the large 
apartment on the gioundBoor and the curiously arranged belfry 
stage. The Facade of the church is an elaborately ornamented 
example of tbe Flamboyant style.

and 1829, the greater part in a succeesfal enough reproduction of the 
late-Gothic manner, while the florid facade, designed by Gabriel, 
architect to Louis XV., attains a reitain amount of dignity In spite 
of its bastard style. The latter is flanked by two towers, 286 ft high,

23,790 inhib., ia pictuietquely eltuated on the right bank of the 
Loire, with its principai etreet in the hoUoir between two hilU, on 
which rise retpectiTely the chiteau and the cathedral. The older 
parts of the town are ill-built, vith numerous narrow streets, obich 
oooasionally degenerate into flights of steps. A bridge at the end 
of the main street leads over tbe river to the suburb of Tienne.

built in 11S8-1210. The remarkable facade, with ita two towers, baa 
lecentlf been completed and restored. The lentrat tower, though fir 
from pleasing when eeen frotu without, forms a handsome lantern in 
the interior. The altar-piece of the t&th cent., to the N. of the choir, 
near the transept, represents the life of St. Mary of Egypt 

We now aerend tbe right bank of the Loire to the bridge (p. 374), 
wbete a bandsome street begins. The Roa da Roi ascends to tbe 
right to the Cathedral ot Bt. Louis (Pi. D, 4), an edifice in a bastard 
Gothic style, reconstructed by J. H, Mansart In 167.B. The facade 
. Is later, and may he described as beionging to the neO'Clusic school. 
The eeyeiith chapel to the right contains two marble reliefs, by Le- 
rambeit (1660), representing Memory and Medita.tion, formerly on 
the tomb of the mother of Ring Stanislaos of Poland, in the church 
ot StVinoent (p.276J. — Tbe Blihop'i Palace, behind the cathedra],

Paiiln (1647-1710), the physicist, who was born at Bloia, Tha 
statue, by A. Millet, is placed on a platform approached by 122 
steps and commanding a 4ne view. — In the Rue St. Honorit, 
leading bence in a straight direction, is the E5ul d'AUuyt (No. S; 
PI. 4, C 6), of the 16th cent, (restored in 18U3), the finest of the

Th« RaUway Station (Fl. D, 3, 4) adjoins the tine boulevards 
which separate the town proper fcoin its suburbs. Turning to the 
left, we reach in > few minulea a handsome square with the new 
Hdttl dt Ville end the Palais de Justice (PI, C, 3), a largo Doric 
building erected in 1840. A. bronze statue, by Fournier, was erected 
here in 1839 to Honorif de BaUac (s«e above). The Rue NaUonale 
(PI. 0,3,2), which runs hence to the right to the Loire, is the widest 
and bandsomOEt street in the town. The third street on the right, 
the Rue de i'Archei^ch^, leads lo a square in which elands the Arch- 
hlshop'i Palace (PI. D, 2), approached by an Ionic portal erected in 
the 17th cent, as a triumphal arch. The square is embellished with 
a monument to Or. Vtlpeau (1T96-1867), Dr. IVouMenu (1801-67) . 
and Dr. Brttonmaa (1178-1882), three local worthies, the main 
feature of which is a flgurfi of Tonratne by Sioard (1887), 

The "Cathedral (Pi. D, 2), in the adjoining 'Place', dedicated to 
St. Qatien, who introduced Christianity into Touraino, rises on the 
site of two earlier churches in which St. Martin (d. 397) and Gre- 
eorjr of Toms (d. 596) once offtciated. Though it was begun iu 1170 
and not finished till the middle of the 16th cenL, the various parts 
of the cathedral are exceedingly harmonious, and the whole forms 
in fact one of the finest Gothic edifices in France. The Fa^adt, the 
last part completed, is a lavishly ornamented example of the Flam- 
boyant style; Henri lY is reported to have said of it that it was a 
Jewel to which only the casket was wanting. It is flanked by two 
towers, 226 and 229 ft. in height, the upper stages of which consist 
of truncated pyramids, surmounted by double domes in the Renais- 
sance style. The tympana and pediments of the triple portal are in 
open wort; and above is a boautiftil rose-window. ,

We CTOsa the Bus Nationele and proceed in a straight direction 
through the Rue dea Halles, at the end of vblcb stand the Tour 
Oiarltmagne (PI. C, 3; right) and tbe Tcur St. Martin (PI, B, 
0, 3[ left). Theie ate relics of tbe fatnons basilica of St. Martin, 
eitolled by Gregory of Tours, and aftermirde rebuilt on a atiU more 
msgniflcent scale in the 12-13lli centuries. Pillaged by the Hugue- 
nots during the religious wars of the IGth cent., It was finally de- 
molished in 1803, when the street was prolonged. The Tour Charle- 
magne, BO called hecauae Luitgaid, third wife of Charlemagne, was 
buried beneath it, adjoined the N. transept of the church ; the Tour 
St. Martin stood to the right of the W. portal. 

At the corner of the Rue Descartes beginning at the Toor Charle- 
magne is the neiT Basilica of St. HarUn (PI. C, 3), In the Romano- 
Byzantine style, by Lalou, etill unfinished. The dome is surmounted 
by a statue of St. Martin, whose tomb was discovered on the spot 
now covered by the crypt. The haiidEOme interior of the church has 
monolithic columns of grey granite and an open timber roof. — The 
Bue des Fosses- St-Martin leads fiom the square beyond the Tour 
St. Martin to the Place de la Vlctoire. — To the left isKoire-Dame- 
la-Eiche (PI. B, 2, 3), built originally in the 13lh cent., but largely 
reconstructed in the 16th cent, and restored in the 19th. The S. 
portal and two stained windows by Pinatgrlet should be obserrod. 

We now descend to the Loire and fbllow the quay to tbe right, 
pissing a suspension-bridge (Fl. B, 2) and enjoying a fine view of 
the hills on the opposite bank. Farther on is the Pont de Touri 
(PI. C, 2, 1), built In 1765-77. Still higher is another suspension 
bridge, connecting Tours with thesuburb ot St. Symphorien. Near the 
Pont de Tours is the 15tb cent. Cure* of St. Salumin (PI. 0, 2). 

Tbe Place de rBfiM-de-7iH« (PI. 0,2), at the N. end of the 
Rue Rationale and the S. end of the Pont de Tours, is embellisbed 
with modem statues of Rabelai) (p. 283, to Ihe left) and DeieaTtes 
(to the right). The old HStel de VllU, on theW. side of the square. 
Is an insignificant building of tbe 18lb centory.

tbe Italian Renaiaaance. It occupies a curioas sitnation, in great part 
supported by piles inithe channel of the Cher. The chateau was 
founded in 1616 by Thomaa Bohier, receiyer-genecal of taxes, but 
bis eon relinquished it to the crown In 1535. Francis I. frequently 
resided here, and Henri U presented It to Diana of Poitiers. Cathe- 
rine de M^dida, howeyer, compelled the fayourlte to resign Che- 
□onceani in exchange for Chaumont (p. 266), and spent consider- 
able sums in ealaiging and embelliebing her new possession, which 
she bequeathed lo Louise de Lorraine- Vaudemont, widow of Henri III, 
Tbe poet Tasso visited Catherine here, and in 1599 Francis II. and 
Mary, Queen of Scots, spent their honeymoon at Chenonceanz. The 
chateau has long been private property. — The chateau is reached

On quitting tbe station, in tbe lower andlsES ancient part of the

at the end of whii.b we tum to the left and so reanh St. Ayaul, a 
Qothio cbareh with Romanesqne featnree, dating from the 12-16tb 
centuries. The line reredos of tbe high-altar, eiecoted by Btasset 
(;i61%.63), is embellished with a painting by Stella, reproEenting 
Jesus among the Doctors. Tbe Lady Chapel, to the right, contains 
eenlpturea by BUsset, and the Baptistery, to the left of the entrance, 
contains two 16th cent, statues of St. Cecilia. The transept, ohoir,

Becrossing the Place St. Ayoul and proceeding In a straight 
direction through the Roe de la Cordonnerie to the Rue du Vat, and 
then turning to tbe right, we reach 8te. Croii, a church of the 13th, 
16th, and 16th cent,, containing several interesting works of art. 
Among these may be mentioned the stained-glass windows of the 
16th cent (in grisaille), tbe fonts with mutilated high-reliefs of the 
same period, and the holy-water etoup at the S. door. 

The Rne St Thibaut, a prolongation of the Rue du Val, leads 
to the upper town. At the lower end of the street, to the left, starids 
the Hottl-Dieu, dating in part from the 13tb century. In the Rue

tbe *6bob8b Tovb, oi Tour Ciaar, \a ancient keep of the 12tb cent. 
surrounded by h strong rampart of masonr; built by the Englisb ir 
tb« 16th cent, (teeper wltbin the enclosure). Tbe lower story j« 
square, with round turrets at the angles, the npper Btory is octagonal. 
There were formeily four stoiiBS, and the present parapet and roof 
date from tbe ITtb cent. only. In the interior are two Tanlted cham- 
berG, tbe upper one cont^uing several amsU cells said to have been 
used for prisoners. A fine ilev of the sorroondlng conntry iB ob- 
tained from the passage roand tbe base of the octagon. 

At the foot of the keep, as we descend the ramparts (see below), 
we notice further tbe Tour dit Luxcmiourp, tbe Jfaison du Bmvrreait, 
and tbe Pinaiie (higher up), another residence of the Conuta of 
Champagne. 

Farther on is tbe Flace du Oidtel, with an ancient Croia and 
WtU, beside vfhich is a fragment of a 12th cent, church. Tbe street 
at the end of the Place leads to tbe Poite de Jouy (see below). To 
the left is tbe line St. Jean, with tbe 13th cent. Graage det Dlmet, 
or tilhe-bscn (apply at the hotise opposite), the hasement of which 
communicates with a Eeiies of huge vaults. 

The Rne St. Jean ends at the balf-ruined Forle St. Jean. Outside 
this gate U the best preserved part of the * Ramparia, wbieh date 
mainly from tbe 13tb century. They are sCrengtbened at intervals 
by round and square towers, and are bordered by a fosse. At a little 
distance to tbe left is the Tour oui Pourceaux or 'Hogs' Tower'. 
Jf we proceed to the right we reach the Tour nux Engiru, beyond 
which the ramparts tnrn at right angles, and we see (he so-called 
Engliih Brench ('BrSche aui Anglaia') made in 1432, and the Porte 
de Jouy. We should heic descend by a footpath into the fos^e to 
visit (he Trou nu Chat, a postern in a tower. The enceinte heie is 
double, one wall euclosing (he npper town, tbe other descending 
to the Dvrleinl, an affluent of the Voul?.ie, about 230 yds. off. 

The ramparts of tbe lower town were less important, and have 
been partly destroyed. They were bordered by a moat fiill of water, 
which still exists and is now skirted by the Stmparti i'AUgre, a 
pleasant promenade '/i M. long. On a bill to the left is the Qinaal 
Eoapital, occupying the site of a 13th cent, convent. 

Farther along the promenade is a Mineral Water EsU^li/hmini 
(closed in winter) with weak chalybeate springs, efticacioos in cases 
of cbloTOsiE and anfemia (fee 25 c. per day or per litre ; bath 1 fr.). 
Beyond the promenade lies tbe pleasant public Oardin, with ths

two chief parte: the well-bnilt modem qaartei on tlie tigbt bank of 
the SaTonrense, still named the Faubourg de France, thoagh wiUiin 
the line offortiflcatiDn: and the old town on the left bank, vhioh we 
reach fiom the station hy turning to the left and traversing the Faa- 
bonig. The town is commanded by an Imposing Citadel, on the sum- 
mit of a TOck 220 ft. high. In front of it Is the colossal 'Lion of 
BtlfOTt (PI. 0, 3), 36 a high and 72 ft long, carved In red sand- 
stone by Bartboldi in commemorallon of the defence of 1870-71. 

We enter the old town by the wide RonleTard Carnot and soon 
reach the Place de la Hdpublique (PI. B, C, 3), with the Prffecturt 
on tbe right, and the Patau de Juitlct'oa the left A little farther 
on is tbe Place d'Armes, with the Church of St. ChrUtopher, dating 
from 1729-60; the Hdtei de Villt, conWlning a Salle d'Honnenr, 
with madam paintings from the history of tbe town ; and the Qaand- 
Mlme (PI. 8; 0, 3j, a bronze group by Merci^, dedicated to the

The Bne de la Orande-Pontaine , to the right of the cbuioh, 
leads towards the PoHe de Briiach (Pi. 3; C, 3), of 16S7, one of 
the finest examples of milittry architectnre In the 17th centuiy. 
Iteyond It is the Vallon (Pi. C, 1, 2), which has been trinsfoimed 
into an entrenched camp and is traiersed by tbe highroad to Strass- 
burg. To the right is the Bale road, which passes between the rocks 
of the Citadel and of the Fort de la Jutliee. At tbe end of tbe Vallon 
(2 M.) rises tbe Fort de la !Hiaile, with an old tower which is con- 
sidered Id some sort the palladium of Belfort It was battered to 
pieres Id the siege of 1870-71 and has since been rebnilt. Tha 
fottiflcatiaDB have been made still stronger since the last siege, chiefly 
by the erection of detached forts on the neighbouring bills, some at

it in two arms, dividing It into three principal partem the Faabourg 
d'Alsaee adjoining the etatlon, the Petite Ville, and the Orande 
Ville. Eplnal was founded in the 10th cent, and belonged to (he 
Duchy of Lorraine until its onion with France. There are now 
scarcely any remains of ite ancient ramparte, but.the neighbouring 
bills are surmounted by modern forts.

the war of 1870-71. The Rue du Pont leads farther on to the Place 
des Votyei (PI. C, 2), which lies in the centre of the town and is 
surrounded by inteiesling old houses. No. 20, of the 18th cent., 
with arcadee in &ont, and No. 5, in (he Renaissance style, are the 
most noteworthy of these. 

The Church of St. Gobbt or SI. Maurice (PI. B ; C, 2), near the 
Place des Vosges, butit in the Bomanasque and Qothic styles, has 
a tower In the Transition style, two turrets, and a N. portal. The
