Abbaye de la Trinité

  • mauleon-abbaye-trinite

A "horseshoe" building built between the 12th and 18th centuries, it became the most important religious centre of this territory. It was looted several times at the end of the 16th century during the Wars of Religion. It was restored in the 17th century, then rebuilt in the 18th century. The abbey of the Trinity will be ruined by the Revolution then the wars of Vendée.

It has large basements that originally extended over the entire surface of the abbey. These basements are vaulted. The best preserved part is on the side of the presbytery. The other, much more damaged, is on the "public garden entrance" side.

Bought as a national asset by the commune after the Revolution, the former Abbey of La Trinité houses the Town Hall.
