Aître de Brisgaret
rue Aldric Crevel 76290 MONTIVILLIERS / Côte d'Albâtre
The Brisgaret Ossuary in Montivilliers is one of the rare examples of medieval cemeteries in France that has kept its original purpose. Its surprising macabre depictions on the walls and beams makes it an exceptional place in the region.
The Aître de Brisgaret is a rare example in France of a medieval cemetery with a gallery that has retained its original vocation.
The site has a gallery-ossuary built in the 16th century which has retained its authentic framework. It is adorned with sculptures and wall decorations representative of macabre art.
At the end is a chapel dated 1602 and an original Gothic cross at the site of the mass grave.
This monumental complex required a major restoration work between November 2012 and June 2014 which revealed the exceptional character of the site.
The visit is enhanced with explanatory panels equipped with a QR code allowing access to the content of the aitre-de-brisgaret.blogspot.com blog.
