Understanding the Beaulieu-en-Rouergue abbey 

• A second life for the abbey.
During the French Revolution, the abbey was sold off as a national property and was partly demolished. Art lovers bought the abbey in 1963 and a major restoration programme was carried out with the aid of the State. In 1973 the owners gave the building and their art collection to the Caisse Nationale des Monuments Historiques et des Sites, now the Centre des monuments nationaux. 

• A living collection.
The original collection that was donated has been added to by gifts and acquisitions made by the Beaulieu cultural association.
