Commanderie de la Romagne

Commanderie de la Romagne which was part of the Grand Priory of Champagne. It was originally a Templar fortification became property of the Order of Malta in the early 14th century. In 1595 after the Battle of Fontaine Francais, King Henry IV installed his camp here. He was welcomed by the Grand Prior of Champagne, Philibert de Foissy. St. John's Gate, the large archway, is part of the building where the drawbridge was once stored. It has been restored to host guests in period style rooms.
