Old Abbey, French Heritage monument to St savin

Saint-Savin Abbey was founded at the beginning of the 9th century on the site of the discovery of the graves of two Christian martyrs, Savin et Cyprien, dead in the 5th century. The construction of the present Church date from the second half of the 11th century (1040-1090). In the 16th century, the Abbey narrowly escaped destruction. The installation of the congregation of Saint-Maur in 1640 allows him to know a revival: reconstruction from 1682 of the abbey buildings and the cloister.
