Saint Mont

A path to the spiritual...

Mont Habend or Saint-Mont is located at the southern end of the Fossard massif, in the town of Saint-Amé at an altitude of 672m. Amé (Preacher monk) and Romaric (Nobleman of the Court of Austrasia) created a double monastery there of men and women in 620, following the austere rule of Saint-Colomban. From 819, the female monastery was relocated to the valley, but the site remained a place of pilgrimage for several centuries. Archaeological excavations have revealed a funerary necropolis dating from the first millennium; on the ground, traces of various buildings (chapels, convent buildings, main church) date from the High Middle Ages. Today a religious, historical and archaeological site listed as a Historic Monument, it still retains many secrets with the largest group of Formae ever found to date.
