Perche Regional Natural Park - Natural heritage - Perche en Nocé
- Established in 1998, the Le Perche Regional Natural Park covers over 1,800 square kilometres around Mortagne au Perche, Bellême and Nogent le Rotrou. With its striking relief, Perche is recognisable for its typical landscape features: upland forests, bocage hillsides planted with hedges and orchards, and valleys featuring wet meadows. The landscape is strewn with manor houses, chateaux, churches and country houses; the wide range of quality materials used to construct them has left an extensive palette of colours. Perche shares many common memories such as the emigration to Canada or the success of the Percheron horse.
