HISTORY OF BEYSSAC, A Strong Spiritual Impression
A distant origin...:
The name of Beyssac or Baïssac finds its origin with the Roman Gentilus Bassius who occupied vast villas in the places of the current Buildings. The construction of the Beyssac Abbey includes the use of Roman remains (tegulae and fragments of millstones). The Gallo-Roman excavations near the town of Auterive made it possible to date the remains in the 1st century BC. The Romans then occupied the places of Celtic and Druidic Cults in order to benefit from the favorable places of meditation.

The traces of the Neolithic period (-4000 BC) are common in the region. In the year 994, the Abbey of Beyssac is placed under the responsibility of the Abbey of Cuxa in the Pyrenees under the authority of Pope Serge IV.

The Domaine du Beyssac is then a Benedictine monastery made up of several buildings, including a church. He later became Cistercian.

At the Trocadero Museum of Architecture in Paris, you can find the establishment plans to establish a Benedictine Abbey similar to that of Beyssac, with its huge arches and built flanks. The religious activity of the Domaine will stop at the French Revolution and it will be bought in 1880 by Count Massol.

The current building, with its large and majestic arches, is the old and wonderfully preserved Abbey Church; the only one in the region. The legend tells that Hildegarde of Bingen would have visited the Beyssac ... The Beyssac is listed (in the year 1011), as having one of the 3 mills running along the Ariège. The Abbey of Beyssac is attached to the church Sainte-Marie de Tramesaygues, still under the authority of the Abbot of Cuxa. The ruins of St. Mary's Church still exist, about 2km from Beyssac.
