Geocache Description:


Au milieu du XIIème siècle, Eble de Mauléon Seigneur de l'Ile de Ré et de Châtelaillon offrit aux moines de l'ordre de Citeaux des terres pour y bâtir une abbaye au lieu dit "Breuil Châteliers". Ce monastère fut détruit à plusieurs reprises : pirates, guerre de 100 ans (1294), guerres de religions (1574) date à laquelle les moines abandonnèrent l'Ile de Ré.

[ENG]This monastery was destroyed several times in 1294 and 1574, by pirates and during the religious wars, after what the monks left gradually the Ré Island. The west front, painted in black and whiten was used like a beacon by the navy, for many years. Classified as an “historic monument” in 1987, this exceptional site was the place for many archaeological excavations and restoration proceeding. You can visit freely or with a guide, the remains of the garden wall, the chapel, the cloister, and the refectory.
