Description
The Abbey of Reuniette is a monastery founded in the 9th century, affiliated to Cistercians in 1189. After the French Revolution, the complex was sold as national property. In 1938-1939, the Cistercian nuns of Blagnac (Haute-Garonne), settled again in Le Rivet (www.cister.net/abbayes/fr/103/rivet).
The Association of the Friends of Le Rivet works to restore and improve the heritage of the ancient monastery, and encourage and help the spiritual initiatives of the community.
