    Who needs contemplation, rest and contemplation after the overcrowded of the Loire, is located southeast of Orléans between Châteauneuf-sur-Loire and Sully-sur-Loire (Wassserschloss!), best served with the Benedictine monastery of Saint-Benoît-sur-Loire. The Loire with the fringed Islands is the small community of Saint-Benoît and his monastery. The Basilica is completed at the beginning of the 12th century, a gem of Romanesque architecture in France, during the first half of the 7th century monastery dates back. the monastery church is at the beginning of the 12th century to the burial place of King Philipp Cardinal Richelieu the monastery is closely connected and instigates the choir stalls. Already, the unusually powerful and massively appearing entrance hall tower surprised with sculpture works that explain the biblical story. Magnificent capitals in the Interior, vaulted ceiling, wonderful chancel, choir stalls, the organ via the Sky Portal and the enormous height in the main ship impress and make the Abbey Church to a particular Church. Who wants to go to a fair (plan hangs out, the weekend approximately 5 x on the day), donates €16 and receives a special experience of Church worship. Visit the Abbaye de Fleury is certainly highly recommended, especially for those who are interesssiert for art and history.

    Beautiful Abbey, but the square/avenue is left in abandonment pity :(; None maintains, found near the benches: sanitary napkins, turd (no dog bag is suggested), I'll let you imagine the smell. More like no place is bounded, people Park no matter how on-site, result it remained blocked 1 hour due to a bus which it is parked behind us, the driver was not found, yet it is forbidden to 3, 5T. In addition there is no flower on this Avenue, the most important of the village, is curious because it is a village of Loiret. Damage the center of the village is not bad, work come to be done, they would rather be done in front of the Abbey. In conclusion, the place is very beautiful, but very dirty!

    This is a church in the Loire Valley known as "Saint Benoît sur Loire" is named after the Christian Saint Benedict the reserved portion. The Church is a church of her own romantic period in medieval art (founded 1067) and is unique in the pages showing both early sculpture of hybrid animals and scenes from the life of Jesus, including the titles show up 4 apostelim. A must for all interested in medieval art.

    The architecture is very interesting, deserves the inside of arreterreur, the crypt is a beautiful place of worship. Very warm welcome from the monks.

    Very nice, relaxing place. The monks who take the shop to the right of the Basilica are really nice!
