Our Lady of Sainte Garde

Abbey

FR |

Public

The building complex is located above the village at the end of the 'sentier des Oratoires'. It is closed to the public.

In 1666 the pastor of Saint Didier had a chapel built on a hill for Our Lady of Sainte Garde and a building for reflection. Later they founded the order of the missionaries of Sainte Garde des Champs. The building complex was rebuilt several times including in 1833.

It has also experienced a turbulent history. Forfeited during the revolution and turned into a glass factory. Then a small seminar, an open-air school, a military hospital and now a private complex for seminars.
