Entrammes is a commune in the Mayenne department in north-western France. It is located about 3.7 kilometres (2.3 mi) west of Parné-sur-Roc and about 3.7 kilometres (2.3 mi) south of Laval Entrammes Airport in Laval.[1]

History

Entrammes owes its location to a major ford across the Mayenne River: the road connecting Le Mans to Rennes traditionally crossed the river here. Consequently, a substantial town covering approximately 55 hectares existed here already two thousand years ago, and was already settled during the first century BC.
