Villers sous Châtillon and the magic of Christmas

For many years, in the winter, Villers- sous- Châtillon burst into life with magical Christmas trees, fairy-tale gardens and sparkling illuminations ! Unfortunately it seems that it isn’t true anymore! A real pity ! But you can still see the pictures ...

Opposite Villers sous Châtillon, across the valley, stands the little village of Châtillon sur Marne with its colossal statue for Pope Urban II.

It was erected in 1887. At a height of 25 metres, it is the ideal view point for the entire valley and the twenty-two surrounding villages!

Pope Urban II, ( known as Eûdes de Châtillon in his ordinary life ) launched the first crusade to Jerusalem in 1095.
