The pearl of the banks of Creuse
Located on the banks of the Creuse, the village of Moutier d’Ahun has remained authentic by preserving its low houses and its medieval bridge. Its beautiful Romanesque church, inherited from a Benedictine monastery founded in 997, also contains a treasure. It is now famous for its 17th century Woodwork, sculpted by Simon Bauer and his Baroque companions.
Angels’ faces, fantastic characters and abundant fruits adorn the building, which brings together Gothic, Romanesque and Baroque art in a single unit. It is not surprising that Alain Corneau chose the splendid setting of Moutier D’Ahun Abbey for his film, so dear to the heart of the Creusois: “Every morning in the world”.
