Take the sanded path right off the Abbey.

Etang de Saint BernardThis is the place where Saint Bernard arrived in October 1118 with twelve monks. The first community had established a hermitage which they left in 1130 when it became too small, and built the Abbey in its current location.

Nothing remains today of the first hermitage. A calm pond named after the founder and Saint and a recorded miraculous source evoke those early days.
