Notre-Dame-de-Jouarre Abbey, French Heritage monument to Jouarre

The history of the Abbey began in the 7th century with the foundation of the monastery to 635 on the site of Jouarre. A burial complex intended to receive the family of Adon, son of Authaire graves, is built around 680: these are the famous Merovingian crypt. From the Romanesque period, remains the tower. The main Abbey buildings were built under the abbatiate of Madame de Montmorin, between 1742 and 1756: abbatial Pavilion, large dormitories, flag of the chaplaincy. The field of the Abbey was slowly restored after the destruction and the revolutionary grinds. The cellars of the former granary and the building of the former audience (current mayor) are no longer part of the assets of the Abbey.
