During the guided tour, visitors will discover places usually closed to the public: funeral chapel of the Dukes of Bourbon with its restored paintings (early 15th century), Baroque sacristy with its abundance of sculptures, woodwork and Italianate paintings and discovery of the cloister . The visit continues in the Priory garden and the museum: the old monastic barns now house the lapidary collections and an annual exhibition.
Treasures of a Cluniac Priory
The exhibition will allow the public to cross the different Romanesque, Gothic and modern periods from unknown works and yet classified as Historic Monuments. Among the works on display: the Virgin in Majesty from the 12th century, the Romanesque enclosure, a set of 15th century statues, the jewel of which is the restored Saint Mary Magdalene.
This exhibition aims to present exceptional works, to tell the story of the site from the 10th century to the 19th century and to discuss its candidacy for inclusion on the UNESCO World Heritage List. An educational course will be set up for family visits and schools.
