On the site of the ruins of a chapel, discover the Saint-Vincent abbey which was built on the initiative of Queen Anne of kyiv, wife of King Henry 1st. In the church of Saint-Vincent, as it appears today, the oldest part is the small chapel annexed to the north transept, whose wall, of exceptional thickness, is a possible vestige of the church. completed in 1069. You will be surprised by the layout of the church in relation to the cloister, which is not traditional, as it is not located to the south of the religious building. Sold as national property in 1790, the building was successively used as a military hospital, barracks, spinning mill and then an education center from 1836, thus reconnecting with its primary vocation: education. Nowadays, a private high school occupies the premises. You can visit parts of this abbey when it is open during the European Heritage Days.
