“Disappointing”

Abbaye Saint-Jean-des-Vignes
Ranked #1 of 15 things to do in Soissons
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 25, 2012

We were expecting something worth visiting, as the pictures we were shown looked pretty impressive. It was also free of charge, which appealed to us However, when we arrived a gentleman told us that we could not come in – his French was so fast that we couldn’t understand the reason why we couldn’t enter. Instead, we were left to walk around the outside of the ruins and visit a nearby museum with a small, but particularly dull, collection of works. All in all, we couldn’t recommend it, although maybe the abbey was open at different times to when we visited, as indicated in other reviews.

The abbaye is in ruins but let's say that these ruins are very well preserved :). The visit is free of charge but I advise everyone to take the guide (an offic on the right side of the entrance). It costs only 5 EUR per person and the guides are very competent. During the visit they give you plenty of interesting informations about the life of the abbaye as well as medevial customs and architecture. Very educative and interesting.
