Abbey of Notre Dame du Lys

Abbey of Notre Dame du Lys

Description

The Cistercian abbey of Notre Dame du Lys was founded by Saint Louis and his mother, Blanche of Castille, in 1244. The nuns moved here from Maubuisson Abbey in 1248.
The heart of Blanche de Castille, buried in Maubuisson, was transferred to the abbey church in 1253.

The king's protégés and young girls from good families or repentant sinners found refuge here. The convent buildings, burnt down in 1358 during the Hundred Years' War, were rebuilt from the 15th century onwards. Following the troubles of the 16th century, the abbey was reformed.
