The house of the priors (La Maison du Prieur) in Romainmôtier is one of the last 2,000 surviving legendary monastery palaces built along the main roads in Europe during the Middle Ages. It was designed to host important guests of the Father superior and is perhaps the last witness to this grand era. After a long period of decline, the building is now classed as a national monument and has been miraculously conserved, with immense halls, huge fireplaces, beams and coffered ceilings, and wall and ceiling paintings from the 13th, 14th and 17th centuries.
