NOTES: The Abbey Church of St Pierrre was consecrated in 1063, the cloister completed in 1100 and the massive porch and belfry added shortly after. The cloisters were also restored in the 13th century in a more Gothic manner. The famous south portal was built between 1120-1125 and moved to the present west front in the 13th century.
