Its lower part was rediscovered for 40 years, thanks to archeological excavations, which made possible to reveal again the majestic monastic stand, forgotten during 300 years.
Must-sees :
• The crypt and its bestiary and priant (11c)
• The monastic stand and its capitals (12c)
• The mosaic depicting the Garden of Eden (12c)
• The frescos (15c)
