There are some sites that, without quite knowing why, exude a very particular feeling, such as a sense of solemnity or calm. Well, Fontenay Abbey is one of those places…In this case, however, we know exactly why! :o) Nearly 900 years of history have endowed it with true character. It has survived wars, crusades, revolutions…It has taken some blows and made its share of sacrifices (notably the destruction of the refectory by the monks, who were unable to maintain it), but it is still standing, waiting to welcome you, crowned with its UNESCO World heritage status! !
