Discover the remains of the ancient abbey of Savigny-le-Vieux, one of Normandy's most outstanding Cistercian temples, with this fantastic tour.
Savigny-le-Vieux Abbey Tour
We will meet up at the scheduled time in the car park next to the remains of the former abbey of Savigny-le-Vieux. Founded in the 12th century, this monastic complex is one of the main Cistercian enclaves in the Manche department, in the Normandy region.
During the tour, we will observe the arches and other architectural elements that are still preserved from the abbey church, the cloister, the refectory, and the other buildings that made up the complex.
The history of the abbey could not be understood either without mentioning Saint Vital, whose legacy in the lands of the département of La Manche is still very evident. We will tell you about this saint and his religious activity during the Middle Ages in the surroundings of Savigny-le-Vieux.
After hearing some fascinating facts about the French designer, we will conclude the visit back at the original meeting point.
