Royaumont Abbey combines history and digital technology

From its foundation by Saint Louis in the 13th century to its transformation into a military hospital during the Great War, the abbey is a formidable transmitter of memory !

Enjoy our digital tour. Terminals give you access to archive images, interviews and unpublished documents retracing the history of the Abbey.

Royaumont is also surrounded by an exceptional natural setting: the park, the 9-square garden, the cloister garden and the vegetable garden give the abbey a timeless green setting.
