Pensionnat Catholique

Aaaahhh, elitism... A few days ago, a gentle reader of this website made me notice I was an elitist. And this for the simple reason that I don't share "my" sites. Duly acknowledged.
If not distribute to all-will and total strangers addresses to respect the tradition of urban exploration and to avoid voluntary and too rapid degradation of these spots make me an elitist, then yes, I really am. And proud of it.
Sorry lower class, but you aren't worthy to tread the ground that my tripod had the honor of visiting. Be happy that I have spoken to you, flea-bitten !
Seriously, I have already mentioned this urbex's cancer. No need to talk again.
Finally, about my pseudo-selfishness : if you want address, move your ass and look for ! One of the plagues of our time is that people want all and effortlessly. C'mon...

To return to elitism, the place visited that day was probably the practice at high doses. Although based in open country, residents weren't farmers' children. On the contrary, high society ridded temporarily off their progeny here.
As proof, just to see the advanced equipment (for the time, means) and courses. Another indicator which shows that the institution was not frequented by slobs, the majestic chapel and stained glass. At this time, they didn't mix apples and oranges...

Huge Art Deco complex built during the inter-war period, it replaces a smaller building built in the 19th century.
The end happen with the new millennium, and since, nobody in endless corridors except a few photographers. Miraculously enough, the site is relatively well preserved.
Walk in the maze with D-Kryptage Urbain and Kaptage.

A recurring appearance of the place : false ceilings have often fallen, but this is the only significant degradation.

Almost the only ornament a little work : ramp's foot of the central stairs.
The rest of rooms (except the chapel) is very simply decorated, if at all.
