  • English
    • Founded in 1133 under the rule of Saint Augustine, it was built in white stone from the surrounding quarries. The abbey church is surmounted by a square bell tower on its dome. It presents a superb "Christ of outrages", attributed to Van Honthorst, and walnut stalls distributed throughout the choir.

      Under the protection of the bishops of Périgueux and the Holy See, it quickly prospered and benefited from great privileges before falling into the hands of the English during the 100 years war. From decline to decline, the abbey will regain its lost prosperity under Father Alain de Solminihac. During the Revolution, it will become a national asset.

  • "A beautiful old abbey undergoing restoration"

    5 / 5 Reviews posted by DavidCM2000 (Haywards Heath, United Kingdom) on 13/10/2018

    Just outside Perigueux, this is well worth a visit. The abbey is undergoing restoration but not just as a historical monument, which it certainly is, but as a Christian community. A small community...

  • "Isolated and quiet"

    4 / 5 Reviews posted by sydneysider48 (Sydney, Australia) on 03/07/2017

    The remains of the abbey are located in an isolated and quiet spot. The main abbey church and small adjacent chapel are interesting but not of special note. The contrast between the cavernous...
