Welcome to Langres
Langres dates back to Gallic Roman times. It became prosperous in the middle ages, and the walls constructed to protect during that time still stand today. The walls stretch around the town for 3.5km and there are 7 gates. The magnificent Cathedral of St.Mammes was built in the 12th Century. Much of the old town still exists. It's also known for the AOC protected cheese of the same name.
Langres' most famous son is Jeanne Mance who went on to found Quebec.
