Abbey of Saint-Michel-de-Cuxa

The Abbey of Saint-Michel-de-Cuxa is a Benedictine abbey located in Codalet, France. Founded at its present site in 878, it survived as a monastery for over 900 years, but was closed and sold by the government following the French Revolution of 1789, and fell into disrepair. It was refounded in 1919 and subsequently restored by the Cistercians—an order which had originated as a reformist offshoot of the Benedictines—before being returned to the latter in 1965. Parts of the original building are incorporated in The Cloisters museum in New York City.
