"Historic Abbey"

The Jouarre Abbey is an ancient monastery of Benedictine order, located in the Siene-et-Marne department of France. In 630 CE, the Abbess Theodochilde laid foundation to a Merovingian following. Her brother built an adjacent family mausoleum, a pre-Romanesque structure notable for a beautifully carved Last Judgement tableau. An interesting feature was a continuation of the Celtic tradition of a community with both nuns and monks. The abbey attracted many pilgrims and bestowed care to the ill and persecuted. Locally known as Abbaye Notre-Dame de Jouarre, this monastery is visited by travelers and locals alike who come to offer their prayers. Besides, it is a popular tourist spot and attracts history and culture enthusiasts for visitation and provides tours for the same.
