Landévennec Abbey

Abbaye-de-Mennec-French-Monastery-Ker-de-France


History of the Abbey of Landevennec


Founded between the 5th and 6th centuries, Landévennec Abbey is the oldest documented monastic foundation in Brittany.
Located a hundred meters below the "new" monastery built in the 1950s, the old abbey is now an archaeological site and a museum. Nearly 25 years of excavations have revealed 13 centuries of Breton history.

"It is an extremely pleasant place, exposed to the sun, inaccessible to all winds, except for the east wind; Like a paradise magnificently turned towards the rising sun ... a garden adorned with flowers of all kinds of colors, where you can harvest the fruits of not only the earth but also and especially of the sky "

Extract from the life of Saint Guénolé, 9th century

The museum

Near the site of the former abbey, the museum, whose collection received the "Museum of France" designation in 2017, traces the history of the monastery from its foundation to the 18th century and beyond.

To do this, he benefits from the considerable contribution of excavations undertaken on site since the late 1970s by Annie Bardel and Ronan Perennec under the aegis of the Department of Finistère, with the assistance of the State and the Brittany region . The remains of the old abbey are open to visitors.

Each year a temporary exhibition sheds a new light on an aspect of the history of the abbey, the life of the monks and their entourage.
Activities for various audiences are scheduled during the season.
