Abbey of Fontevraud – Cultural Centre of Western France

Address
Place des Plantagenêts
49590  FONTEVRAUD-L'ABBAYE
Description

From the moment you arrive you realise the unusual scale of the site: thirteen hectares of ancient buildings sitting within a lush landscape. At the heart of all this is the main priory, which links the Abbey’s most beautiful buildings – the magnificent abbey church, which overlooks the entire site, the Romanesque kitchens, the chapter house, the cloisters and their gardens regularly adorned by contemporary artworks, the great dormitory that permanently houses a work by Claude Lévêque …

The discovery doesn’t stop there. The Saint-Benoît area and the Saint-Lazare priory are perfect for a stroll, as are the gardens, where vegetables, herbs and fruit trees create the ideal landscape for reflection. Fontevraud Royal Abbey is a unique location for a multitude of experiences.
