Pretty Sens enjoys a "four-leaf" ranking as a ville fleurie, or floral city—and you’ll understand why when you see the Moulin à Tan (a gorgeous park with more than 35 acres of greenery), the excellently manicured square Jean-Cousin, and the municipal greenhouses. It finds full botanical expression on the second Sunday in September, when everything and everyone are festooned with flowers during the Fête de la Saint-Fiacre, a festival named after the patron saint of gardeners. But anytime during the year, the glorious Cathédrale St-Étienne makes a trip here worthwhile.
