Overview
More
One of the finest preserved surviving examples of the religious architectural fervour, the abbey was constructes in the 13th century overlooking Paimpol bay. The French Revolution saw the dissolution of the abbey and it becam in turn a town hall, residential accomodation, shool and cider press. Today, the grounds surrounding the abbey extend over 297 acres and shelter a variety of fragile and threatened ecosystems.

A beautiful Abby, with lovely gardens. Would highly recommend it. Very near the beautiful Castal town of Paimpol, with many good cafes and restaurants . Whole area has a lot to offer.

We visited the abbey with a friend in a wheelchair. There's disabled parking available and fairly good paths around the site, but access into the shop/information area was not accessible. Because of this we were fairly limited in what we did.

An impressive ruin with lots of explanation of the history of the building. Surrounded by lovely gardens. Close to the coast & there are walks from the abbey to extend the visit. Worth popping in to see.
