Gigny Abbey

Gigny Abbey

Abbatiale de Gigny

Located in the town of Gigny (39), established by Father Bernon on his own land, the abbey appears in the texts in 888. In 910, this abbot founded Cluny with monks from Gigny and Baume-les-Messieurs , another monastery he directs. The Abbey of Gigny is then transformed into a priory, given in 1076, by Pope Gregory VII to Hugues, abbot of Cluny. This building is fully classified as Historic Monuments. Its church preserves extraordinary elements from the Romanesque period.
