Travel Foto Friday: Royaumont Abbey

While traveling in Europe we see a lot of beautiful and inspirational spots.  As I was flipping through some photos, I stumbled upon these of the Royaumont Abbey I had taken a few years back during a trip to France.

The Royaumont Abbey was founded in 1228 by Saint Louis, King of France and was occupied by Cistercian monks  until the Revolution.  This abbey is the largest Cistercian cloister in France.  As you can see the grounds are spectacular as is the Gothic architecture!

These canals were used by the Cistercian’s as they are known for using water for energy purposes.

The Royaumont Abbey is outside Paris and can be enjoyed as a day trip coupled with a stop in Auvers sur Oise.

 

Have you been to Royaumont Abbey?  What about other Cistercian Abbeys?
