    Description:

    Saint Honoratus (French: Saint Honorat or Saint Honoré; ca. 350 -January 6, 429) was Archbishop of Arles. In the Middle Ages, Honaratus was the object of a pilgrimage in the Arles region.

    Description:

    Founded in 654 by Saint Philibert, Jumièges Abbey was ruined in the Norman invasions from 841. In 942 William I, Duke of Normandy, brought 12 monks from Poitiers to refound it.

Notre-Dame was built between 1040 and 1067 and was …

    Description:

    A Carthusian monastery on the outskirts of Dijon. The monastery was founded in 1383 by Duke Philip the Bold to provide a dynastic burial place for the Valois Dukes of Burgundy, and operated until it was dissolved in 1791, during the French Revolution. The complex had two cloisters, a church, small cottages, a private oratory for the Dukes, and other buildings. It is noted for the Well of Moses by Claus Sluter (still in situ) and once held rich artworks, including two sculpted tombs, now large…
