Torigni Sur Vire

Torigni sur Vire, south-east of St Lo, in the department of the Manche, has a famous connection. The Mairie was built in the 16th century as the home of the aristocratic Matignon family. In 1715 a son of the family married Louise de Grimaldi, and the title of Count of Torigni is still held by Prince Rainier of Monaco today.
