The cellar of the 25 measures

This cellar begins under the lay brothers’ cloister. It runs under the entire area devoted to the brothers, the prior’s lodging and the library and ends under the courtyard of the church.  The cellar was built in the Gothic era and has beautiful pointed arches. There is a window at each end. The barrels it once held were stored on two levels. Today the cellar is used for performances and readings in the summertime, and for theatre classes.
