Daniel Benchimol takes us to Lagny-sur-Marne, a medieval town on the outskirts of Paris. If history is not your thing, you can visit a small museum where neo-impressionists works are displayed. The pioneers of pointillism made their debut in this charming little town.

Daniel shows us some more of Lagny-sur-Marne. This small town is famous for its battle with the English (or les Anglois in Old French), valiantly fought by Joan of Arc in 1430. You will also find more peaceful sites like the washhouse, where, by municipal decree, everyone had to be silent....

France

Daniel continues his visit to Lagny-sur-Marne, a small town where extraordinary events took place. Joan of Arc is said to have performed a miracle there on her second visit to Lagny. And the abbey-church of Saint Pierre once harbored a great secret: a nail from Jesus's cross. Unfortunately, the nail was lost, but not forgotten, as it now features on Lagny's coat of arms.

France

Daniel gives us a historical overview of the town of Lagny-sur-Marne, about thirty kilometers southeast of Paris. This small town is full of historical landmarks dating from the Middle Ages, and includes many Art Nouveau-style buildings from the Belle Époque. On a more whimsical note, you will also find a free outdoor library made up of a few books and DVDs in a glass case. Help yourself but don't forget to put them back!
