In 1262, Saint Louis founded the Saint-Maurice priory, within the perimeter of the royal castle, to house the relics of twenty-four martyrs of the Theban Legion, companions of Saint Maurice. Of the monastic ensemble there remains the eastern wing of the Saint-Maurice priory, remodeled until the 19th century, whose monks' dormitory, upstairs, has been restored. During your visit you will discover the astonishing wooden ceiling called "reversed boat hull". The priory is open to visitors during events and European Heritage Days.
