The priory is open to visitors during events and European Heritage Days.

In 1262, Saint Louis founded the priory of Saint-Maurice, within the perimeter of the royal castle, to house the relics of twenty-four martyrs of the Theban Legion, companions of Saint Maurice. The eastern wing of Saint-Maurice priory remains from the monastic complex, and was remodelled until the 19th century. The monks' dormitory upstairs has been restored. During your visit, you will discover the astonishing wooden ceiling known as the "inverted ship's hull".
