Photographer's Note

The monks who had initially settled in Fleury transfer the relics from St Benoit towards the end of VII century. The site then becomes object of all the devotions as well as a great arts centre of IX in XII centuries. Calms will be broken by the unloading of Norman which plunders and sets fire to all on their passage. Follows a new boom with the construction of the Basilica, one of best testimonys of the Romance time in Loire Valley.
