Old Abbey, French Heritage monument to St sever de rustan

Medieval Abbey flourished, but devastated during the hundred years war. In 1573, the protestants burned the Church and monastic buildings and looted the village. The congregation of Saint-Maur, who is entrusted with the Abbey began the restoration in the 17th century. Another work campaign, conducted by the Abbot Dom Charles Lacroix between 1736 and 1780, intervenes in the 18th century. In 1776, we Redid the ceiling of the nave of the Church, on landscape a sacristy, and it carries the current woodwork that dressed the abbatial room. We reorganized the kitchens and the dormitory cells and it builds up the grand staircase of the Northwest Pavilion. The building of the farm no doubt made in the second half of the 18th century, taking support against the pre-existing wall. The Abbey is sold as national property during the French Revolution, with the exception of the Church and the sacristy. The body of main building, to the West of the cloister, was bought by the municipality in 1889 to house the school. The cloister of the 15th century is disassembled, and then transferred to use of 'factory' in the Massey Garden in Tarbes. Some deletions will be still made at the end of the 19th and early 20th century.
