The Temple of Bevaix

The temple of Bevaix (Le Temple de Bevaix) was built in 1605 and 1606.

The remains of the ancient Benedictine abbey of Bevaix, which was built in 998,  were used as buildings materials. The monastery had fallen into disrepair after the Reformation around 1530.

The romanesque vaults and some windows of the tower and other parts were used. The protestant church of Bevaix shows Catholic features. The abbey got a second life.
