This is one of the Must See's of St Ferme. As the hotbed of social interaction here in St. Ferme, the bakery is the center of all that is in this tiny town. Every morning we or some of us would come down here to get bread for the morning.
Anothe rinteresting thing i learnt during this tour was that those stone rigdes weren´t there for water drainage or so.. Well, in quite a different way anyway then i had assumed. Quite illogical on my part since they were halfway the height of the building. The left picture shows where the input needed to go. The right picture shows where it came out.
I´m sure those benedictine monks stayed well clear of the abbey walls here...
The benedictine abbey of Saint-Ferme dominates the complete village. Tours are given in this abbey that last around an hour and are at the moment given in French or English. I really enjoyed the visit. LEarnt much about the abbey although i have no doubt there is much more to discover.
