Notre-Dame church in Mouzon Abbot church

A big city located at Gallo-roman time on the road linking up Reims to Trèves, the old Mosomagum houses a beautiful abbey church!

A Benedictine abbey was developed here in 971, founded by bishop of Reims Adalbéron. Rebuilt on the former church vestiges, the abbey church dates from 1190. Completed in 1231, the northern tower only dates back to 15th century and southern tower to 16th century. Choir dates back to the 12th century, nave to the 13th century. You will notice the organ and its 1725 carved case, made by Christophe Moucherel.

Sold during French Revolution, the church was transformed into a hospital. A huge restoration was undertook in the 19th century.
