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.
