The lustre of the "pearl of Anjou" is gradually being restored. This fine heritage is not only due to its stone, but also to its magical heritage. What art student has not pored over one of the striking pages of the "Très Riches Heures", a masterpiece of Gothic art? Saumur is also renowned for its horses and especially its Cadre Noir stables and riders in their black and gold uniforms. The town is also worth a visit for its gracious castle and rich historic district.
