Plan Your Alsace-Lorraine Vacation

Lorraine is the region of France's patron saint, Joan of Arc. Follow D64, which winds between Contrexéville and Void, and you will be on Joan's native soil, almost unchanged since the Middle Ages. In fact, she would probably find much of the countryside today familiar. Various towns bear witness. At Neufchâteau, then a fortified town guarding the region, the inhabitants of Domrémy sought refuge in 1428 from the English armies that menaced their village. It was in Domrémy that Joan was born in 1411 or 1412. Moving on, Vaucouleurs recalls Joan's arrival in May 1428 to ask the help of the governor to see the king to plead for France's cause—and achieve her destiny.
