SAINT-BENOIT-SUR-LOIRE

Descriptive

Enter a haven of spirituality where meditation goes hand in hand with wonder. Nestled in a meander of the river Loire, the charming village of Saint-Benoît-sur-Loire is home to one of the most beautiful jewels of Roman architecture: an 11th and 12th century basilica whose most remarkable features are the church tower adorned with twelve ornamented capitals, the mounumental gate and the nave. In the crypt, a shrine preserves the precious remains of Saint-Benoît whose principles are still followed in the life of the community of monks to this day.
