A journey back in time to meet the Premonstratensian monks who founded Bellelay Abbey. With a guide, discover the architecture and origins of Tête de Moine.

"The Abbey is a historic monument dating from the 18th century. Towering over the centre 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."
