The Abby is breathtakingly beautiful and awesome in its sense of history and timelessness. Well worth a visit and and a stroll around the ancient gardens and outer buildings quite magical.

The entrance is tucked away on the left side of the main facade . Abbaye is to the left on entry and gardens are to the right past some of the original walls . A pleasure to light real candles .
