The August 12 2024


Discovering the heritage of Lion/Mer, one of the oldest seaside resorts in Normandy where many villas stand out for their Anglo-Norman or Belle Époque style.

The castle, dating from the 16th century, surprises us with its elegance. A listed heritage site, it is partly Renaissance, given the pyramidal roofs and small turrets. Welcome from the owners and free tour of the exterior: the park, the orangery, the chapel, the cellars, the cider press, the ice house, the main courtyard.…

Transformed many times, the Saint-Pierre Church built in the 11th century on the remains of a 4th century sarcophagus necropolis now reveals a mixed and varied style.

Visits followed by musical reading and an aperitif.

*Description of the musical reading:

Touch, taste, smell, hear, see.

The senses, which we share with animals, constitute our toolbox as living beings. It is through them that we come into contact with the world. So many unique experiences of the body. Poets and writers are not mistaken and tell us the essentials of the miracle of the Living.

“I had done my job as a man and to have known joy for a long day did not seem to me an exceptional success, but the emotional fulfillment of a condition which, in certain circumstances, makes us a duty to be happy. » (Albert Camus, Wedding)
