Eglise Abbatiale Notre-Dame De L'Absie
The abbey, founded in 1120 by Géraud de Salles, was badly damaged during the Hundred Year War. The church was rebuilt by Abbot Bernard d' Appelvoisin in the 15th century. Inside, a wall painting dating from the end of the Middle Ages shows Saint Michel beating the dragon and two other Middle Age wall paintings show the crucifixion and Saint Grégoire « Le Grand's » mass.
The Abbey Church will undergo a 3-year programme of renovation work.
