Abbaye de Fontevraud can loosely be translated into The Royal Abbey of Our Lady of Fontevraud. Built in 1101 in France, it has incredible spiritual importance. However, by 1792 it was disestablished as a monastery. Between 1804 and 1963, it served as a prison, and was finally converted into a cultural center in 1975. In 1840, it was designated as a World Heritage Site. Since it was the original site where King Henry II of England and his family was buried, it also has historical significance. This huge structure houses many buildings and areas including the chapter house, cloister and the church.
