Blesle owes both its existence and its expansion to the Benedictine abbey founded there in the 9C. Although all that is left of the stronghold built by the Barons of Mercoeur is the keep, the towers and the outer walls, half-timbered houses and carved doors still bear witness to the village’s medieval past.
