Tourism in Sorigny
A famous pilgrimage route passes through Sorigny: the GR 655Est is called the ‘Chemin de Saint Jacques de Compostelle’ (The way to Saint Jacques de Compostello). A cross with bevelled edges is in the middle of the route which passes throughout the ‘rue des écoles’.
The church Saint-Pierre-ès-Lien was reconstructedin 1866. From the primitive Roman church (built around 573), there is only the base of the bell tower. This contained a bronze bell from 1745 and enclosed the stained glass windows of the Lobin de Tours studio (end of the 19th century). See Download Description of the church St Pierre.
The monument to the war dead in the place de la Mairie, was conceived in 1923 by the sculptor Marcel Gaumont (Grand prix de Rome) and by the architect Maurice Boille.
To the north of the town centre in the area called La Métiverie, there is an old washing place fed by a water fountain.
The private Château de Longue-Plaine dates from the 19th century except for two towers from the 15th and 16th centuries. (http://www.longue-plaine.com/)
