The Royal Abbey of Fontevraud has had a display of church bells set up on the portico of the side door of the church this year. One of the bells has been specially cast to ultimately hang in the belltower at Fontevraud. The others are on loan, some 21st century, some early 20th century.

 The bell on the left has been cast for Fontevraud and is called Aliénor. 
The one on the right is also new and for a privately owned chateau.
