  • The grotto of the Church of St-Marin in Artres
    The Church of Saint-Martin in Artres is noteworthy for its miniature replica of the famous grotto of Lourdes. Ancient gravestones remind the visitor of the existence of the old cemetery which once stood next to the church. The grotto was erected in 1885 and was "offered" as a sign of thanks by the family of Georges d’Haussy, a powerful farmer and company owner from the village.
