  • In addition to being a beautiful Abbey, this 3 'mini' Museum welcomes each worth a visit. I highly recommend the guided tour of the crypt, the guide was excellent.

  • This place had to be very impressive, but is not properly met by the various regimes that ruled the France. I find that the whole deserves a better development despite the fact that what was destroyed (under Napoleon) can no longer be reconstructed. The Carolingian crypt was the main attraction of the tour for me but is by guided tour only and we arrived after the last of the morning.

  • There are good and not so good! The place is gorgeous, give thanks to the elders who have helped with this exceptional place to exist, grow and develop until today ' hui. The cloister, the avant-nef converted to let your eyes the traces of the past and the location of old sarcophagi, the Abbey Church which begins to be highlighted thanks to lighting. The shop offers a wide range of work on the stone, heritage, art and the playfulness. The large and small can find treasures with their next few memories. However dust! The so-called rooms of the Museum are old, with facilities worthy of a camp of the 1960s: old panels, typographies antediluvian, and worse still, supervisors of rooms which do not say hello, who carry on their shoulders all the unhappiness of the ancient world and who seem more able to talk about the latest issue of Gala rather than the Gallo-Roman. The site is so sumptuous but beware the pitfalls linked perhaps to the city policy to defend its culture because there would be much better to do than that. I encourage you to get there (more for stone for the excitement, passion and passionate humanity of the people who work there).
