Notre-Dame en Saint-Melaine Church

All that remains of the former Benedictine abbey is the abbot’s residence, the cloister with its elaborate sculpted decoration and the convent church. The church features elements from the Romanesque era alongside tombs, statues and 19th-century and contemporary stained glass windows.
