In Joan’s footsteps

In Domrémy-la-Pucelle, there’s a muted and contemplative atmosphere in the house where Joan of Arc was born, where visitors can easily imagine the daily life of the young girl from Lorraine. Just a short walk away, the heroine of the Middle Ages takes on new dimensions with the permanent exhibition “Faces of Joan”. The story continues on a nearby hill at the Bois Chenu Basilica dedicated to the saint. In the summer, don’t miss the spectacular sound and light show projected on the monument.
