Photographer's Note

The monastery is located in Brittany (France), in the department of the Coasts of Armor, on the littoral of the English Channel, at the bottom of a sheltered handle of bay of Paimpol.

It was founded in 1202 for the order of Prémontrés.

The abbey presents an architectural unit preserved good, composed of abbey and principal buildings which are ordered around the cloister. The unit is classified Historic building since 1862 and property of the Academy of the Littoral since 1993.

The site of the abbey of Beauport is the starting point of a marked out way of 1800 km to Saint-Jacques de Compostelle, in Spain.

Very good weekend to all.
