Visited on 10 2017


Initially, this monastery was a castle from the Count of Levignan, built in 1786. In 1892, the Sisters of St. Charles settled there. The cloister you can still see today dates from 1904. French Carmelites lived there before being replaced by Benedictine monks in 1927. The building was occupied by the Germans in 1940. Two years later, nuns brought peace to the buildings. When they merged with the Sisters of St. Augustine in 1969, the monastery became a rest home. It had the capacity of around 50 residents. The last inhabitant left in 2008.
