Guided Tour Abbey of Saint Maurice

The Abbey of Saint Maurice was built 1500 years ago as a place to honour martyrs. This pilgrimage destination was once the spiritual centre of the Burgundy Empire and today houses some of the richest ecclesiastical treasures in Europe. The Abbey is the oldest Christian monastery in the Western world to have existed without interruption in its original location. The canons have continued their Laus Perennis – perpetual prayer – day after day since it was founded in 515. As a cultural heritage site of global significance come and discover the basilica, the archaeological site of the former churches and the jewels of the new treasury.
