The abbey library and its decor by Odilon Redon
Nestled above the cloister of the Abbey of Fontfroide is an astonishing library. The room is usually closed to the public but is sometimes open for visits in small groups of up to twenty people. Those reduced visits are to preserve this very fragile and intimate room.

He created this decor as a gift for his friend Gustave Fayet who bought the abbey in 1908.
