Le Mans itself has one of the most beautiful old quarters in France, with a remarkable Cathedral and a wealth of royal history. The city's love of cars began in 1873 when local bell-maker, Amadée Bollée, built his first steam-driven car. The Renault factory continues this business today in southwest Le Mans.
