A site of religious meditation since the 7th century, the abbey saw it’s grandest times during the 15th. The church seems to reach for the sky, and seems to be ready to take flight any second. Visitors delight in the many little aspects of its architecture that come together to create a soaring grandeur. Note the high arching windows, the oblong tower, the bells, the famous fan vaulting, the memorials to dignitaries and the imposing organ.
It’s truly magical if you attend during mass though. That’s when the spiritual magic of the place hits you. If you can, see if you can get a knowledgeable local to regale you with all the stories behind the abbey. It has quite the fascinating history.
