A small rural town with a rich architectural heritage
Immortalized by the Impressionist Sisley in his canvas Le Sentier au bord de l’eau à Sahurs, le soir (on display in Rouen’s Musée des Beaux-Arts), Sahurs stands opposite La Bouille. A useful explanatory panel at Sahurs includes reference to Sisley’s work. The place offers many walks, by the river or through fields and forests. Sahurs’s varied heritage is remarkably grand and includes: the châteaux of Trémauville and Soquence, plus the latter’s grounds; the Ferme du Gruchet; Saint Sauveur Church; and Marbeuf Manor, with its Notre Dame de la Paix Chapel, where Anne of Austria, wife of King Louis XIII, came to pray for peace in France in 1637.
