Description
The Abbey of Le Valasse is a former Cistercian monastery founded in the 12th century. After the French Revolution, the complex knew the destruction of the abbey church, the transformation into a chatelaine residence, the installation of a spinning mill and then of a dairy, and finally its purchase by the Municipality of Gruchet-le-Valasse (www.cister.net/abbayes/fr/104/valasse).
