Monastic Art Museum

Demolished in the XVIII century, this medieval building was discovered in 1963. As it was impossible to rebuild it on the same spot, a museum was set up nearby. The building used to be a monastery from the twelfth century, built north of the Church of Notre-Dame-en-Vaux, today’s Unesco World heritage spot. The museum exhibits column-statues, storied capitals, pillars and decoration and iconography that once decorated this unique building. The artifacts show the transition of Romanesque to Gothic in this part of France.
