St Ceneri Le Gerei

St Ceneri le Gerei, Sarthe, is an attractive little village on a rocky spur in a sharp meander of the river Sarthe.

The village was named after the 5th century saint, St Ceneri, who founded an abbey here. Nothing remains of the abbey today, or of the castle that replaced it in the 11th century, although the ruins of an 11th century church were amongst the romantic scenic elements that drew artists such as Corot to the site to paint.
