A bit of history about the former railway line

Until 1887, travel was by stagecoach, and it took five days to get from Baugé to Paris. The railway was built by the Paris-Orléans company in 1884, and the first train arrived in Baugé on 24th October 1887. The La Flèche-Baugé railway line (extending it as far as Saumur), was taken over by the SNCF from 1938 until 1969. The former railway tracks found a new purpose when they were redeveloped as green ways, open only to pedestrians, cyclists and riders.

La Flèche – from the Zoo to the Prytanée National Militaire (French military school)

The Zoo de la Flèche, stretching over 14 hectares, is home to 1,200 animals of 150 different species, and participates in the European Endangered Species Programme. The Prytanée military school, with its classical early 17th century architecture, is one of the most prestigious establishments in the French educational system, and is one of six military secondary schools on French soil

Départ Voie Verte - Château de Baugé

Chateau de Baugé

Both the history and the heritage of the town of Baugé are astonishing. Its most prestigious witness: the chateau. King René d’Anjou was responsible for building this majestic edifice (on the site of ancient ruins) because he wanted to use it as – a hunting lodge! Today, the fortress offers an exceptional backdrop to a touring route fit for a great spectacle.

The Apothecary of Baugé

The apothecary is a must-see on any tour of the Hôtel-Dieu de Baugé- the town’s hospital, founded in 1643 and still in service until 2000. This hospital dispensary still has all its walnut and oak furniture, in the Louis XIII style.
