A nice church with a great story of several building phases that topped each other over the centuries. Especially the crypt is really cool, because there you can see the building phases really clearly.

The church is amazing, not that many people inside. Peaceful place with a crypt. The church is free to entry, crypt upon 2€ fee.. Worth it!

The Abbaye includes some relics of the oldest building in France. The main nave is beautiful and peaceful; it repays spending some time in walking around. The best part is the crypt (well worth the €2 charge), with many places and sarcophagi dating back to...More
