Abbaye De Bon-repos - Review

Located in the town of Saint-Gelvin, overlooking the beautiful Nantes-Brest canal is the Abbey of Bon Repos. Lovers of contemporary art should not miss this place. The intimidating building looks medieval but was recently restored in 1986 after it’d been burnt to ruins by the royalists in 1795. With that rich a history, a place deserves to be an important centre for art and culture. And it is. Legend has it that the place was built by a tired hunter who had been told to do so by Virgin Mary. She had visited him in a dream when he had rested on that pice of land where the Abbey stands now. Bon Repos means Good Rest.  Highlights include:

  • Contemporary art exhibitions. Artists, along with the locales try to understand the culture and the environment they live in. Interaction with the artists is common.
  • A famous Sound and Light show that tells in an entertaining fashion, the history of Brittany.
  • A lively Farmer’s market on Sunday mornings.
  • Crystal Shop
  • Dried-Flower seller.
  • Guided tours and workshops.

Locales like to say that the place is like the bird Phoenix. It rose from the ashes.
