Haut-lieu du chant grégorien dans le monde, l'abbaye de Solesmes fondée au XI ème siècle abrite une cinquantaine de moines qui continue de vivre selon la règle de Saint-Benoît.
High place of the Gregorian song, the Abbey of Solesmes, founded in the 11th century, is home to around fifty monks who continue to live according to the rule of Saint Benedict. Their life is punctuated by prayer, manual labor and the study of lithurgy. Every day, seven offices are celebrated in Latin. Having made vows of poverty, the monks live in autarky. They cultivate their vegetable garden, make their bread and their own clothes and sandals. The Abbey of Solesmes is also a publishing house. The monks still manufacture hand-bound books.
