Manor of La Saucerie

61700, La Haute-Chapelle

Introduction

At the end of the 12th century, Aliénor d'Aquitaine gave his saucier and faithful servant Robert
the marshlands of Rouellé-la-Haute-Chapelle. In the 15th century, the Doynel family made it
to build a castle, of which remains a remarkable monumental door (15th-16th century), in sandstone
Armorican dressed in granite, covered by an imperial roof. It is framed by
two round towers pierced with loopholes and topped with a square pavilion with wooden pan
roofed in the shape of an inverted hull. There was, at the back of this
Porte-Châtelet, a second manor (17th century) that has disappeared. La Saucerie is one of the last testimonies of medieval fortified house of the groves of the Orne
