Overview of Abbaye Mauriste
Abbaye Mauriste in Saint-florent-le-vieil dates back to the 6th century. However, this Benedictine monastery was raided from 850 to 853 by the Normans. During this time, the monks were forced to flee. From the 11th to the 17th century, the abbey underwent destruction due to fire and attempts were made to bring it back. And so, the new abbey was built in the 17th century.
You are welcomed by a small but blooming garden. The abbey itself stands tall with intricate artwork of stucco and stained glass. During festivals and event, the abbey is lit up, and this golden architectural beauty is a precious sight.
