In 1622 the abbey became part of the Congregation of St Maur; the three western nave bays and the façade were destroyed and replaced with a large terrace.

    Description:

    Part of the ‘Merveille’ constructed 1212-1228. The cloister (1225-1228) is particularly lavish, with two sets of coloured shafts set in a syncopated rhythm, probably derived from English work (e.g. Lincoln Cathedral choir aisles), and supporting miniature vaults and arcades with richly carved spandrels.
