The name of the city Le Mans, conjures up thoughts of Top Gear, and motor racing. Not a medieval city, rich in history. It was a pleasant surprise.
We stayed in the old section, opposite Cathedral St-Julien (XI-XV). During July and August they are featuring projected images on the historical buildings throughout the old area. For those of you who remember Northern Lights part of the Adelaide Festival, this was leagues in front with music, and moving images. As nightfalls around 11pm, it commenced at 11:30, and was very worthwhile!
