border towns, Rocroy et Mouzon have each inherited such a unique and remarkable heritage that they are both labeled Small Cities of Character. Indeed, this label was created in order to promote small rural towns but atypical by their history and their rich heritage. However, the first, site of the famous battle of 1643, is the only star city in France. Moreover, Rocroi has particularly well-preserved fortifications. As for the second, it is known for its sublime abbey of 12e and 13e century (with a rare recluse cell) and its amazing wool felt industry. His museum-workshop (with possibility of initiation) is unique in France. Two unmissable Small Towns of Character.
