The Abbey

Welcome to the Cistercian Noirlac Abbey

Located in an unspoiled setting on the banks of the River Cher, Noirlac Abbey bears the traces of nearly nine centuries of a rich and often tormented history. Today, as a perfectly restored monument, it invites visitors to come and discover its architecture of light. Also a Cultural Encounter Centre, it organises a calendar of artistic performances throughout the year.
In Berry, 40 km (25 miles) south of Bourges, the Cistercian Noirlac Abbey (12th century) is one of the best preserved monastic sites in France.
