The Thermal Spa Resort of Bagnoles-de-l'Orne

The warm springs of the spa town of Bagnoles-de-l'Orne were said to rejuvenate those who drank them. One story has it that an aged monk took a sip and could suddenly jump over the big rocks in Les Andaines Forest. The springs' benefits were recognized long ago, but only became famous in the 19th century, when the baths were built, along with Belle Epoque villas. Since then, the place, which specializes in treating rheumatism, has been much sought after.
