This priory has been known by this name since the 12C when the church was built. It was at this time that the massive bell tower was built and as well as the cloister. It passed into the hands of the Benedictines and then the Augustinians and finally the Franciscans. Finally at the Revolution it became state property. It became an asylum in 1803. In 1889 van Gogh voluntarily entered the institution and remained here for one year.
