The Federation of European Cluniac Sites (FESC) was founded on June 18th 1994 in Souvigny (Allier-France) by twenty-four local authorities keen to promote their common Cluniac heritage.
The monks of Cluny left a complex legacy across their European network. Little is known of this today and the Federation aims to redress this.
In 2005 the Council of Europe designated the network of Cluniac sites as a Grand Cultural Route thereby recognising the important role Cluny has played in forging a pan European identity.
Today close to 200 Cluniac sites throughout Europe work together on local, regional and international projects within the framework of the Federation.
