Abbaye Notre-Dame (XII-XVIII)
Although this Benedictine Abbey Church was there in Saint Joan's time, it's not very likely that, as a prisoner, she would have been given the liberty to visit it. Her statue can be found on the right side of the Church, near the choir.
It is possible that St Joan of Arc would have been imprisoned in the dungeon (la grosse tour) of the castle of Ham, owned by her captor, Jean de Luxembourg, and which was midway between her two known prisons of Beaulieu-les-Fontaines and Beaurevoir. Due to it's strategic value and impressive strength, the castle was dynamited by the retreating Germans during World War I. All that remains today is the square plan entrance tower and parts of its network of enceintes.
