Photographer's Note

In 1146, under saint Bernard, 12 monks, an abbot and five brothers were sent from Clairvaux to Villers to found a new abbey there. After 7 centuries of prosperity and enlarging of the field, the abbey is finally sold like "national good" on July 25, 1797 (thanks to the french revolution !) and will be used as stone quarry.
