Maillezais Abbey, the cathedral of the marshlands in the southern Vendee. The abbey was founded around the year 1000 and enjoyed more than five hundred years of prosperity until it was destroyed in 1562 as a result of the religious wars of the 16th century, a time when "France was nearly torn apart by forty years of agonizing, destructive civil war" (R. Dunn, The age of religious wars)

Summer holiday 2005 - another day trip from our camping site at St.-Hilaire.
