The simple monument at first must be examines support of its founding dates: shortly after the year 800... 7 centuries after Christ! We are contemporaries of the evangelization of our lands, and with what adventures!

Something very special for the blue marble sarcophagus, made in the Pyrenees, in the ninth century for St Philibert and remained buried and hidden 1000 years! No less! Great time.

  • The Carolingian remains are rare in Europe, the Abbey of St. Philbert, is a good example. It owes its name to the relics of the saint, transported in these places by the monks of Noirmoutier fleeing the devastation of the vikings. Founded in the eighth century, the Abbey grew with the development of the monastery. She knows various fortunes, much revised, she underwent archaeological excavation that allow to trace its history. The place has a lot of charm, in the edge of the river Boulogne, it has an orchard and a medieval garden very well documented. Hospitality at the Tourist Office is very friendly, and the price (3) reasonable. You can complete the visit with a walk on the path that runs along the Canal and the Boulogne, there are many aquatic birds.
