A monastic place before its time!
The Guards have been a religious place since the Middle Ages! The lord of the place, imprisoned at the time, promised for his release to build something in honor of the Virgin. And presto, it was done in 1465 with the Notre-Dame chapel, where pilgrims are flocking more and more. Monastic life there then began in 1605, with the construction of a hermit convent of Saint Augustine! It was this monastic life that later initiated the development of the village of the Guards.
The first abbey after the Revolution
The Revolution devastates France and its abbeys. The hermits of the Guards were unfortunately not spared: the buildings were looted then burned, and the community dissolved. To escape the turmoil, the French communities then took refuge for the most part in Switzerland and then in Russia, with Dom Augustin de Lestrange at their head in particular. In 1818, he reintroduced some of the nuns who had followed him into France, and in August, moved a dozen of them to the ruins of the old hermitage. Yep, Notre-Dame des Gardes Abbey was born!
The heyday in the 19th century
In 1821, the community quickly grew as Dom Augustin transferred many nuns to the Abbey of Notre-Dame des Gardes. The sisters shine and are a hundred on site in the 19th century! History goes that in 1828, the Duchess of Berry even visited the community. What an honor! Little by little throughout the nineteenth century, the place of pilgrimage then regained the hair of the beast. We thus see the inauguration of a new statue, the construction of a new sanctuary etc ...
