  • This former Abbey is located in the complex of the Cochin Hospital at no. 123 boulevard Port Royal in the 14th arrondissement, in the northern part, and it is accessible by the RER B station "Port Royal". In 1626 the Cistercian Abbey of Port Royal des Champs, located in the Valley of Chevreuse, wants to have a dependence near Paris and avoid problems of epidemics. On the site of a mansion, the Abbey of Port Royal des Champs is built and completed in 1648 in the classical style dominant at the time. The buildings and the chapel still exist and you can visit the cloister that lies in the middle of buildings serving the administration of the hospital. An indoor garden with lawn and trimmed yew is surrounded by the Gallery of the cloister, which is still well preserved. The Abbey and cloister are classic as the buildings of the convent, with large windows on two floors, in a style quite a few demonstrative, like the rest of the buildings. The Port Royal Boulevard you can see the buildings of the Abbey as well as the Chapel, which can be visited during services Sunday. This place was also a home of Jansenism in the 17th century and the sisters were hunted in 1664 and replaced by sisters visiting the sick. During the revolution in 1795, a maternity hospital is created in this place then the maternity of Port royal, is created in 1804.
