  • This old Abbey was deserted during the French revolution and large portions or the buildings collapsed, including the roof of the church. Bought by a prominent family of Paimpol in the 19th century, the buildings were kept in the same state while the garden was carefully tended to enhance the romantic appeal of the Gothic ruins. The site itself, overlooking the coast is stunning under the sun and beautifully quiet in the fog that frequently shrouds it.
  • A very interesting place, full of hystory and art. The feelingd and atmosphere within the ancient walls are inspiring. To be seen.
