Cloitre du marronnier

English – Chestnut Tree Cloister

The Chestnut tree cloister is in the Saint-Vincent abbey. There, you can find the tall and wide chestnut tree which is known all over the high school. The Legend says it’s a Liberty tree which was transferred into the institution. The cloister galleries are opened by arcades. Before, the monks used this cloister as a stable, warehouse or jail and the arcades were closed in the 20th century so it took a lot of time to refurbish the place to welcome students.
