According to Grégoire de Tours (6th Century) and Leidrade (8th Century) there was a monastery on the Ile Barbe as early as the 5th Century, making it, along with St Pierre, one of the oldest monasteries in Lyons. The building of this monastery, situated on an island, perfectly suited hese first monks who were self-sufficient and preferred to lead a life of asceticism and meditation. There is little left of this Carolingian monastery apart from some artifacts displayed in the Musée Gadagne in Lyons. The monastery prospered during the Middle Ages but was closed during the Revolution and then sold. Although all that is left today is the Norman abbey church of Notre Dame (dating from end 11th-early 12th centuries), the excursion to the island is pleasant; there is a park with games for children on the Southern part and in the North, charming houses and private mansions have been preserved. Take the pont de l'île along the Saône North of Lyon (quai Carrié on the right bank, quai Clémenceau on the left bank).
