The Abbey of Royaumont

The Abbey of Royaumont – 30km north of Paris – is an abbey of the Cistercians under the reign of King Louis IX. built between 1228 and 1235.

The Abbey of Royaumont is located in Asnières-sur-Oise, in the department of Val-d’Oise, about 30 kilometers north of Paris. It is an abbey of the Cistercians, a monastery of Cîteaux between 1228 and 1235 under the reign of King Louis IX. At first, it served as a burial site for members of the royal family who died in the childhood (including three children and two grandchildren of Louis IX), who were unable to find a last retirement at the main funeral dome, the Saint-Denis Basilica. It was dissolved in 1791, during the French Revolution, and thereafter served partly as a quarry for a factory. The sacristy, the cloister and the refectory remained intact.
