(3.8/5 based on 1,200+ reviews for 6 attractions)
Things to do: nature, museums, parks
Doué-la-Fontaine is a commune in the Maine-et-Loire department in western France.It is located in the heart of Anjou, a few kilometres from the great châteaux of the Loire Valley.SightsThe town was already Vetus Doadum, Teotuadum castrum, in Late Antiquity, identifiable in a document of 631 as Castrum Doe. The foundations of a 6th-century circular baptistery beside the natural springs has been uncovered beneath the ruins of the pre-Romanesque church of Saint-Léger, itself destroyed in the 17th century. It was the site of a Gallo-Roman villa that was inherited by the Carolingians. In his villa here, Theoduadum palatium, Louis the Pious was informed of the death of his father Charlemagne in 814 and hurried to Aachen to be crowned. The villa was turned into a motte in the 10th century, around which the village developed, in part in excavated troglodyte dwellings. In 1055 the site was identified as Doedus, then Docium in 1177.
