Geocache Description:



Un village paisible qui a essayé de préserver les traces de son passé.

1/ L’église Saint-Laurent date du début du XIVe siècle et a pu survivre à la Révolution car elle était devenue une église paroissiale. Les moines la construisirent selon les techniques nouvelles de l’époque gothique.

2/ Quant au couvent, il n’en reste que deux vestiges :

- le mur ouest de l’abbatiale du couvent féminin, de l’ordre de Fontevrault, fondé en 1151.
Percée de deux baies romanes, cette maçonnerie doit son état de conservation à la qualité du mortier obtenu avec une chaux vive de première qualité à laquelle sont ajoutés des œufs. Ce mortier résiste notamment à une immersion prolongée.

- le portail d’entrée du couvent des Franciscaines, appuyé sur les ruines du premier établissement, datant du XVIe siècle.

Bonnes découvertes !

A peaceful village that has tried to preserve its past.

2 / As for the convent, What remains is only two vestiges:

- the
west wall of the abbey of the nunnery of the order of Fontevraud, founded in 1151.

eggs are added. This mortar especially withstands prolonged immersion.
