Useful information


The two portals of the North façade are among the major attractions of this Benedictine abbey. The stunning sculpted decoration of the great portal dates from the 12C. The small portal is also noteworthy for the rich detail of the scenes it portrays: the Wedding Feast at Cana, the Transfiguration of Christ and the Sacrifice of the Old Testament.
