L'abbaye Royale


Fontevraud's Origins

In 1101, in an uninhabited valley, itinerant preacher Robert d’Arbrissel founded a community that was destined to become one of the largest monastic orders in Europe. Almost 900 years later, an unprecedented archaeological dig revealed the details of this foundation. Today, Fontevraud opens an archaeological ‘crypt’ beneath the heart of the abbey church. Young artist Ève Deroeck guides the public through the crypt with a series of animated films that are informative and artistic.
