Abbey Bellelay - 4 Things to Know Before Visiting
About Abbey Bellelay
The Abbey is a historic monument dating from the 18th century. Towering over the center of the village of Bellelay, a place imbued with history, this building in the Baroque style is a cultural and artistic meeting point. After the newly-completed refurbishment of the grand organ, I attended a concert that transported me into a world of musical splendor. The entire site is rich in history and is well worth exploring.
