Junies' Convent

46150, Les Junies
  • Visitable

Introduction

Founded between 1345 and 1355 by Cardinal Gaucelm de Jean, the convent of Les Junies was occupied by twelve Dominican sisters from 1363.

He knew an eventful history and over the centuries, he underwent many changes. In 1793 it was sold as a national asset and was partly dismantled.

The new owners acquired the convent abandoned in 1989 and since then, have not stopped devoting their time to its rehabilitation.
For twenty years, the eastern wing was restored. Today, you can admire the chapter house, which opens onto the cloister, covered with rib vaults, limestone pavement, stone benches, trilobed bays and stained glass windows.
On the first floor, the alleged housing of the mother superior was also restored.
