The new silver 10 Euro coin displays a view of the abbey buildings nestling on the wooded hill above the town. The reverse shows the South Portal of the abbey church. Built in 1618 from the remains of the mediaeval rood-screen (partition wall between the monks’ choir and the body of the church), it has a representation of the Adoration of the Magi carved beneath its Romanesque arch.
