Since becoming a conservancy in 1992, Gothic Abbaye de Beauport, erected in the 13th century, has been recognized for its ecological and historical contributions. The conservatory now protects the exterior grounds surrounded by rose gardens, fig trees, apple orchards, salt meadows, reeds, an old harbor, dams, the coastline, and a forest. You are also invited inside the abbey to view the polychrome frescoes, blacksmith art, cultural events, restoration projects, the bird capture and release program, and the eight majestic granite columns.

Abbaye de Beauport Reviews
Thoroughly enjoyed the history & the setting; stayed just south of Paimpol, spent the earlier part of the day cycling the north of the ‘presqu’ile’ lunch then the abbey- a lovely day more »
Didn't expect too much from this, but i really liked this place. Recommend it to everyone who's nearby. You can easily spend an hour here. Think children would like it too. more »
This old Abbey was deserted during the French revolution and large portions or the buildings collapsed, including the roof of the church. Bought by a prominent family of Paimpol in the 19th century, the buildings were kept in the same state while the garden was carefully tended to enhance the romantic appeal of the Gothic ruins. The site itself, overlooking the coast is stunning under the sun and beautifully quiet in the fog that frequently shrouds it.
A very interesting place, full of hystory and art. The feelingd and atmosphere within the ancient walls are inspiring. To be seen.
