La Manu

Interesting
In a green setting, the renovated buildings of an old weapons factory house various educational centres (including a circus school), the Car, Motorcycle and Bicycle Museum, a work by Jean-Luc Vilmouth, ''Like Two Towers'', built around two industrial chimneys joined by a footbridge (nice view of the town and its surroundings), and provide access to a pleasant walk along the Envigne canal. When lit up at night, the Manu buildings take on a rather fantastic appearance.
