Fodor's France 2014
Musée St-Martin Review
Old mosaics and Romanesque sculptures from the former abbey are on display in this small museum. Housed in a restored 13th-century chapel that adjoined the abbey cloisters, the exhibits retrace the life of St. Martin, so important to the history of Tours, and the abbey's long and storied saga. Martin founded the first Benedictine abbey in France just outside Tours in the fourth century. The word "chapel" comes from the legend of Martin as a young Roman soldier who shared his cape (or "capella") with a beggar and then had a vision of Jesus. Small churches holding relics of the cape became known as chapels, and soon all small churches took the name.
