An inspiration for Impressionists painters
Often considered the capital of Norman Switzerland, Clécy is nestled on the banks of the Orne in an interlacing of groves, unexpected abrupt rocks, and changing lights. The region hence attracted Impressionist painters like Paul-Émile Pissarro, Georges Jules Moteley, and Charles Léandre.
