Description
The Abbey of La Prée is a former Cistercian monastery founded in the 12th century. In 1954, following its donation to the Association of « Le petits frères des Pauvres », it has been a place of stay and vacation for elderly people in precarious situations. In 1992, under the aegis of the “Pour Que l'Esprit Vive” Association , an artists' residence was also installed in the complex (www.cister.net/abbayes/fr/31/pree).
The “Pour Que l'Esprit Vive” Association (est. 1932) works to help artists and intellectuals, living in precarious situations.
