The Maubuisson estate, north of Paris, is home to the remaining listed buildings of the former abbey "Notre-Dame-La-Royale", founded by Blanche de Castille, Saint Louis's mother.
In a ten-hectare park planted with trees**, ideal for a stroll, the discovery of archaeological remains, the stream, the canal and the water mirror enhance the walk and bear witness to the hydraulic installations from the Middle Ages to the 18th century.

A stroll between history and contemporary art

Today dedicated to contemporary art, the abbey produces major monographic exhibitions which are displayed in the former halls of the monastery and develops research, production and mediation programmes around heritage and contemporary creation.
