Romainmôtier Abbey Church

Nestling in beautiful verdant surroundings, in the region of Yverdon-les-Bains, Romainmôtier has one of the oldest Romanesque churches in Switzerland which sets the pace of life in this town. Built on the model of Cluny church, it holds regular services and very popular concerts.

Built between 990 and 1028 according to the plans of Cluny church, the Abbatiale de Romainmôtier is one of the jewels of the Yverdon-les-Bains region.

The stage for many concerts, the church echoes with the notes of its great contemporary organ, both in summer and winter. A stone’s throw from here, festivals and banquets are held at the Maison du Prieur, a historic building with an impressive fireplace, which can accommodate over 200 people.
