One of the finest preserved surviving examples of the religious architectural fervour that swept Brittany from the 11th century onwards, the Abbey was constructed in the 13th century overlooking Paimpol bay under the patronage of Count Alain de Goëlo .

He granted the living to the Premonstratensian canons, or White Canons, and for over 500 years their religious order shaped the abbey, grounds and surrounding environment.

The French Revolution saw the dissolution of the abbey and it became in turn, a stable, town hall, residential accomodation school and cider press.

  1. Beautiful! I’ve been to Paimpol several times but seemed to have missed this place! Great post with equally beautiful pictures. Next time I’m there, I’ll look for this abbey.


  2. Thanks for the photos, Beauport Abbey is a wonderful place to spend a few hours. The ruins combined with the wild, lush green and the overflowing roses create a very beautiful atmosphere. We visit every time we’re near there! )
