Discover the history of Bagnoles de l’Orne through that of the two Quarters of the town. The guided tour of the Belle Epoque Quarter takes you along the boulevards lined with sumptuous villas built at the end of the 19th century. Created by the architect Albert Christophle, the quarter remains a true open-air museum. Around the lake, you can find out how the resort developed to welcome high society to take the waters before becoming an independent commune in 1913. The guided tour of the Château de la Roch-Bagnoles also includes a splendid panoramic view over the resort from the viewpoint at Le Roc au Chien.
