  • This abbey must have been beautiful. Its remains are grandiose. What a wonderful work of goldsmiths. I also loved the crypt and the paintings on display. We saw it in stormy weather and from some angles, we were just waiting for Voldemort to come out!!! Very nice place.

  • Magnificent abbey of which there is almost only a façade. The place has been partly converted into an exhibition space. It is a testimony to the city's rich past before the French Revolution and the First World War. The use of new technologies for the benefit of history is remarkable. It is an essential place for soissonnais.
