This forest of young plants has taken root around what was once the Château de la Faigne, and, not far from the chapel of Notre-Dame de la Faigne, a very ancient place of pilgrimage was built on the site of a tree that hosted several Marian apparitions. A historical site if ever there was one, the town of Pontvallain bears the name of a victory of the French army led by the Constable of France Bertrand Du Guesclin against the English on December 4, 1370, during the Hundred Years' War. At the crossroads of history, nature and the spirituality, it is in a fertile soil that Chestnut and Pine trees of the Faigne forest take root.
