See Romanesque art and sculpture from the prolific 11th and 12th centuries at Abbaye Saint Pierre. The railroad has divided the southern and northern parts of the abbey since the 19th century, but you can still tour the cloister and its chapels, the church, and the abbot's living quarters. As you explore the church, admire the "trumeau," which supports the tympanum. This outstanding example of Romanesque sculpture features a statue of the Prophet Jeremiah. The church still holds mass, as it is an active worship site and part of the Routes of Santiago de Compostela. Download the 27-minute audio guide from the website or rent one at the welcome desk.
