Le Prieuré

May 2021

What can be the relationship between the priory visited on this rainy day and the Metropolitan Museum in New York ? A statue of the Virgin. Besides this statue, a real treasure has been forged in the old centuries-old walls.
This priory, founded in the 12th century, has for centuries been a shrine of art. Unfortunately, the French revolution went through this and the priory was dissolved. Soon after, the church and cloister were demolished and the remaining buildings converted into a factory. After the factory closed, a fire ravaged one wing.
Since then, the old priory has been waiting for better days. Will they finally come ? Nothing is less sure...

After the factory, a small part of the buildings was converted into a reception hall and a small theater.

A few corridors have retained their former majesty.

Elsewhere, a sad sight.

The decor alternates between rooms that are still almost intact and other completely dismantled.
