Our selection: Madame Bovary

The village of Ry is renowned for its relation to one of the most stunning novels of French literature, Madame Bovary (1856) written by Gustave Flaubert.

This true story, which happened in Ry in the 1840s, inspired the plot of Flaubert's novel.

Nowadays, Madame Bovary's influence can still be felt in Ry, which seems to set the scene for the novel thanks to key places including the Delamare's house, Maître Guillaumin's Office, the Homais Pharmacy.
