Statuette du col de la ViergeMonument du col de la Vierge

Le col de la Vierge, located to the east of the lake "Lac des Corbeaux", was the scene of several events that marked the history of the city of La Bresse. The first event is the following: a man was in a violent storm at this place. This man posed a statue of the Virgin Mary that he asked to save his life. This statuette is still visible in a tree today. Also in col de la Vierge, there is a monument to deportees from La Bresse to the Haute - Marne. In November 1944, the population was evacuated to Xoulces via Col de la Vierge before leaving for the Haute Marne. Women and children left the village on foot, through a blizzard.
