Abbaye de l'Épau

Interesting
This country abbey on the banks of the Huisme was founded in 1229 by Queen Bérengère. The monastic buildings are organised around a cloister: refectory, scriptorium and dormitory. The 13C-14C church was renovated in the 15C and boasts an immense, delicately sculpted window and a characteristic flat Cistercian chancel.
