History of Les Clayes-sous-Bois
Les Clayes-sous-Bois is a city rich in history since prehistoric period with he discovery of polished bifaces, cut axes and bronze bracelets. But she is best known during the Middle Ages. Thus these lands of Clayes belonged to Simon de Cloyes who built in 1118 a castle next to the church. Then they did not stop changing owners until 1537 when they were confiscated and became property of the Kings of France who succeeded one another. The latter gave the lands of Clayes to their favorites, including Diane de Poitiers. In the nineteenth century, the city is known for its agricultural activities.
Thus, out of the six hundred and twelve hectares of the commune, five hundred and eighty-six are cultivable areas composed mainly of cereals, sugar beet and fruit trees. Since then, various construction projects followed one another in the 20th century. This is the case the Medical-Educational Institute and the intercontinental airport project.
