It's extensive library is now in the BBMun Epinal and St. Dié. A beautiful church of the 12th century survives, along with its Gothic choir. It is now a parish church. In 1944 it was severely damaged in the Second World War. A portion of the cloister survives, but it is now completely converted into private apartments.
