When I first heard of this place, I, like most of the people I know, thought it was just an Abbey. I still went to check it out and discovered a precious gem!
There is indeed an Abbey, founded in the 13th century by cistercian monks, but to be honest I never even entered it. The Abbey itself is tucked away in a corner of the small square, and I am sure most visitors never notice it.
Instead what strikes everyone are the nice paths, the pond with the benches facing the sun, the trees and the small, but well kept, park leading to the upper side of the area.
Lately 2 big tables with benches have been added, making it a perfect sport for a picnic. But be sure to take your spot early or you might have to sit on the grass!
