Le Mans - Its Viking Tradition!
Pictures from Le Mans. The city was raided by Vikings in the years 865, 866, and 869.

The city now celebrates by placing Christmas lights along the river that are made to look like Viking ships and warriors. The bridges are decorated with lit shields and moving lights that look like oars.

Also pictured is the menrir - a statue from prehistory, which proves that the site has been of religious significance for several thousand years.
