Manoir du Clap is an od mansion located in the village of 'La cerlangue', in Normandy. It was built in the late 1590's, during the reign of Henri IVth of France. In medieval times, the village was a part of Tancarville's Baronny (which became a county under the domination of Jean II de Melun).
At the end of the XVIth century, the place now called 'le Clap', not far from the village, became economicaly dynamic. In fact, 'black money' was found in that place, testifing that it was a trading centre. A Norman Squire (probably protestant) decided to build a Mansion in that lucrative place.
In 1740, an other family decided to buy the Manor. They were called 'Yon'. They began to renovate the place in Louis XV, Louis XVI and 'directoire' styles.
In 1890, the Manor house was once again renovated, and in 1935 the famous composer Arthur Honneger came to recite 'Jeanne d'Arc au bûcher'.
The place is now owned by the Family Prevost.
Bed and breakfast services are proposed in the Manor.
The Church of St Donatus name refers to Donatus of Zadar, who began construction on this church in the 9th century and ended it on the northeastern part of the Roman forum. It is the largest Pre-Romanesque building in Croatia.
The beginning of the building of the church was placed to the second half of the 8th century, and it is supposed to have been completed in the 9th century. The Zadar bishop and diplomat Donat (8th and 9th centuries) is credited with the building of the church. He led the representations of the Dalmatian cities to Constantinople and Charles the Great, which is why this church bears slight resemblance to Charlemagne"s court chapels, especially the one in Aachen, and also to the Basilica of San Vitale in Ravenna. It belongs to the Pre-Romanesque architectural period.
The circular church, formerly domed, is 27 m high and is characterised by simplicity and technical primitivism.
