Royaumont abbey : get there and rebuild it...

To reach certain places of beauty and harmony, we must follow a path. At the end of this road, not necessarily easy, we finally be there. Through the meeting with a place steeped in history, sometimes you can find yourself. Even a place where all that remains of the ruins may, paradoxically, be supporting the rebuilding of self.
