Museum and Abbey of Payerne

"There’s not much I don’t know about this town. My day-to-day life is paced by the ebbs and flows of the town’s shopkeepers, its events and its people. You’ve guessed it: I’m a Payerne native through and through. So, when I found out that I was going to spend a day at the Payerne Abbey Church and Museum, I was not exactly thrilled. How wrong was I? It was only after my trip that I could truly say that I was a real local, who knows every nook and cranny of her home town. The Abbey Church is even more impressive inside and the museum was full of surprises. I absolutely L-O-V-E visiting places like this, discovering the stories they have to tell, admiring these landmarks and broadening my knowledge."
