At this Benedictine monastery, you can see the ruins of an older abbey, established in the 5th century AD. The Vikings burned it down in the 9th century AD. Today, on the banks of the river Aulne, the ruins are made very pretty by a medieval physic garden, modelled on a monastic garden from 900AD.

But that is outdoors. Indoors, you’ll find a museum of history and archaeology that traces fifteen centuries worth of this Abbey’s history, as well as the history of the surrounding lands.

Landevennec Abbey Museum Reviews & Ratings

  • Wouldn't have missed it.

  • Visited on a rainy day and this place saved us from the drizzle, two small kids had fun. Lots of little activities left out for kids, good animations of history stories, traditional clothing, helmets and shields to try on too. Clearly had a fair bit of investment in its setup, the ruins themself didn't seem particularly spectacular but the museum made up for that for us. Not a lot in the village, a crêpe restaurant and a simple cafe that sold sandwiches. We visited the cafe as the restaurant (more upmarket) said they were full (perhaps they didn't want soggy kids), the lady in the cafe was lovely and made huge simple baguette sandwiches for us, very basic, I imagine it hasn't changed in many many years. That's not a complaint. Free parking for all vehicles next to the tourist information, or some parking at the museum. Few motorhomes that had probably been next to the tourist information place for a few days.
