Abbaye de Royaumont




Surrounded by streams and lying near a bird sanctuary, Royaumont Abbey was built in a protected environment developed by the monks. The remarkably well-preserved Abbey still stands surrounded by wetlands and forests. Its cloister and refectory are among the most outstanding still extant. A garden inspired by medieval times opened in June 2004.

Saint Louis, King of France, founded Royaumont in 1228 and Cistercian monks occupied it up until the Revolution. In 1791 the Abbey was transformed into a cotton mill and then in 1869 into a noviciate by nuns who undertook the first extensive restoration work. At the beginning of the 20th century the Abbey was acquired by the Goüin family, which set up the Royaumont Foundation (Fondation Goüin-Lang pour le Progrès des Sciences de l'Homme) in 1964 and made it a gift of the Abbey.
