Abbaye de Sauvelade


There is behind the creation of the Abbey of Sauvelade, a deed of donation from the Viscount of Bearn, Gaston the Crusader and the Benedictine monks. He offered them a forest, in 1127, so they could build a monument in honor of the Virgin Mary. The Abbey was later burned by the protestant army who was in the pursuit of the Catholic army of Catherine de Medici.

The monument, however, was preserved and restored to serve the Protestant worship until 1611. Following the French Revolution, part of the Abbey Church, was recovered by the state while other parts were sold as national property.
