Cistercian Abbey of La Cour-Notre-Dame
Cistercian women who took care of the La Cour-Notre-Dame leper colony in Villuis , Seine-et-Marne , founded the La Cour-Notre-Dame monastery in 1225 in Michery, on the banks of the Oreuse, a tributary of the Yonne ( "Maria Hof"), which was visited by the abbots of the monasteries Cercanceaux and Pontigny . The Hundred Years War greatly affected, the abbey was in 1477 at the rank of priory of the monastery Citeaux downgraded and the abbots of the monasteries Vauluisant and Les Écharlis visitiert until 1793 to dissolve and for sale by the French Revolution came. The remaining choir ruin of the church (now private), which has been a listed building since 1963, deserved restoration according to the judgment of Peugniez.
