Abbaye of Royaumont
The Abbey of Saint Louis
Saint Louis founded Royaumont Abbey in 1228 and made many trips: Royaumont then experienced his greatest influence. Monks lived there until the Revolution, but soon the community was reduced from 120 to 20 and a dozen religious buildings fell into a state of abandonment. Starting from the 16th century, there was a succession of Royaumont head abbots, some of whom took a liking to the abbey and made their districts.
After the Revolution, in 1792, Royaumont church was destroyed. The new owner of the Abbey, the Marquis de Travanet, built the park and, with the stones of the church, the homes of workers. While for the needs of abusive factory on the old architecture, a taste of romantic ruins and the mundane life of the new occupants drains the Parisian bourgeoisie. In the second half of the nineteenth century, the nuns of the Holy Family of Bordeaux fought to make his soul to the abbey. Guided by the idea to reconstruct the original Gothic architecture and for the glory of Saint Louis, they undertook extensive.
Royaumont in the twentieth century
The abbey passed in the early twentieth century in the hands of the Gouin family which is the source of the Cultural Center today. In 1964, Henry and Isabel Gouin, created the Foundation Royaumont (Gouin-Lang) for the Advancement of Sciences de l'Homme, the first private foundation with a French culture.
