It’s easy to dig deep into Magny le Hongre’s past thanks to a treasure trove of history… Have a look :
The washing place
It is, perhaps, the most beautiful washing place in the area. Its condition is excellent as it has been restored in 1995.
The main pond is accessible by two wooden doors and is surrounded by stones. A second pond, in a semicircle, completes the set.
A niche was carved into the wall where a statue of Ste. Genevieve is standing.
The existence of a fountain is attested since the 11th century. Renowned as supernatural, many pilgrimages took place on January the third (the day of St. Genevieve) until 1880.
Men, women, children and especially sick people used to come to purify their bodies and heal their diseases. This fountain is now supplying the washing place. Actually, Ste. Genevieve (422-502) became the patron of Magny le Hongre.
A church existed on this place until the 11th century. It was founded in Paris by the canons of Ste. Geneviève. This building does not exist anymore. Several repairs and constructions over the centuries have completely erased the original style. It is dedicated to Ste Genevieve. Both the exterior and the interior have been restored in recent years.
Inside the church, you can discover a painted wooden statue of Ste Genevieve (15th century), a wooden statue of Sainte Fare (15th century), a statue made of stone representing the Virgin Mary (15th century), a wooden crucifix (17th century), a painted wood depicting a martyred deacon and some baptismal font in stone (17th century).
Serge Goudailler’s barn
Serge Goudailler was a farmer and above all a municipal councilor and a jovial person full of humor, always available to others. In his memory, a well preserved traditional old barn was renovated and dedicated to him.
L’Atelier de paix (Peace pottery workshop)
In the town center, an old barn was renovated in 1991 to host the association’s activities. When you enter the place for the first time, you are invited to take your time. In this place, you can work with clay, rest, watch, hear, speak or remain silent. Some items are permanently on display and for sale.
