Railway station

In the 1850s, the Chemins de Fer de l’Ouest commissioned the architect Victor Lenoir to build the neo-Gothic Vitré railway station, which blends in harmoniously with the town’s medieval architectural landscape. Alternating brick and limestone, the white and pink colours fit in remarkably well with the urban backdrop: situated just outside the ramparts, the building expresses the town’s modernity, given that railway stations were symbols of innovation at the time.
