We spent about three hours walking through the Abbey. Every room of the abbey is lavishly decorated, from gold trimmed statues to ornate wall hangings and furniture. We came upon the cathedral where a mass was being said. ....just a few nuns were present, kneeling on the hard stone floor. They were chanting and their voices were exquisite....it sounded like angels were singing.....positively exquisite. (and, of course, totally in French. ;) )
All in all a beautiful place.
