The convent


The Augustins Convent is a fine example of Southern Gothic architecture. Building began in the Middle Ages.

Building the Church

Building began on the Church of the Augustines in 1309 and was to last until the beginning of the 16th century. Today the church is a listed historic monument.

Building the Cloister

In 1341, the work on the chapter house and on the gallery of the cloister alongside it had progressed to such an extent that a general meeting of the Order could be held there.

A Precarious Balance

Despite an obvious decline in the convent during the 16th century, many works were undertaken. At the beginning of the 17th century, a large dormitory with a calefactoria and meditation room was built above the sacristy.
