Hello, my name is Brother Benedict and I’m going to be taking you on a tour around my abbey.

Sidonie the salamander is an animal which looks rather like a lizard. She’s hiding in the abbey - see if you can find where! To help you, I’ll be giving you some clues, telling you stories and asking you questions...

Trail for children aged 7 to 12, unguided tour.
