20 pictures of abandoned places in France

bez-imeni-1-vosstanovleno

Roman Robroek has spent the last five years exploring and photographing abandoned buildings in France. Roman says that some places are more difficult to access than others, but he usually finds an open window he can climb into or a hole he can crawl through.

If a building is closed, he’ll simply walk away and move onto the next one. «That’s part of the game,» Roman said.

Here’s a selection of his finest shots…

1. Abandoned chapel

At the end of the 19th century this beautiful, and now abandoned, chapel was built. The architect promised to design a chapel in old Gothic style, and lived up to that promise. The chapel is surrounded by an immense garden. Nature is clearly taking over.. #abandoned #abandonedearth #grime_nation #abandon_seekers #all_is_abandoned #abandoned_junkies #abandoned_furniture #kings_abandoned #jj_abandoned #rottenfeed #urbexnet #urbexnetwork #urbex_supreme #urban_explorer #urbanexploration #urban_exploration #exploring #exploring_shotz #tv_urbex #trb_members1 #ic_urbex #ig_urbex #ig_abandoned #igw_decay #forgottenandlefttorotten #decay_nation #discarded_butnot_forgotten #beautyindecay #theforgottenspaces #chapel

5. Abandoned church

Little history did I find about this place. It's been constructed halfway around the 19th century and closed about a hundred years later. The church is part of a college where many students took their classes. Initiatives to restore or save the place have not been successful so far. The church, just as the other buildings, are decaying heavily. In my last picture I refered to this awesome church. It's the same building.. #abandon_seekers_ #all_is_abandoned #abandoned_junkies #abandoned_furniture #kings_abandoned #jj_abandoned #rottenfeed #urbexnet #urbexnetwork #urbex_supreme #urban_explorer #urbanexploration #urban_exploration #exploring #exploring_shotz #tv_urbex #trb_members1 #ic_urbex #ig_urbex #ig_abandoned #igw_decay #forgottenandlefttorotten #decay_nation #discarded_butnot_forgotten #beautyindecay #theforgottenspaces #church

7. Abandoned living room


8. Abandoned cloister

This room is one of the few rooms of an abandoned cloister. The cloister only had about 4 rooms, but each one of them was lovely to see. It was a magnificent place to explore. I lay down right outside the cloister on an old part of a tree in the sun for a while and was enjoying the silence and impressing atmosphere this place oozes. The cloister has been built in the early 14th century. Sadly, in the 19th century the cloister had been destroyed. Several elements of the original cloister had later been returned and were used to rebuild it based on the former layout.. #abandoned #abandonedearth #grime_nation #abandon_seekers #all_is_abandoned #abandoned_junkies #abandoned_furniture #kings_abandoned #jj_abandoned #rottenfeed #urbexnet #urbexnetwork #urbex_supreme #urban_explorer #urbanexploration #urban_exploration #exploring #exploring_shotz #tv_urbex #trb_members1 #ic_urbex #ig_urbex #ig_abandoned #igw_decay #forgottenandlefttorotten #decay_nation #discarded_butnot_forgotten #beautyindecay #theforgottenspaces #cloister

9. Abandoned bedroom


10. Staircase in an abandoned house

Due to high maintenance costs which the owner couldn't afford anymore he had to abandon this beautiful property. This is a lovely abandoned castle in France. Didn't expect much of it since I only knew the really cool staircase, but this turned out to be one of my favorite places and it sure was one of the best trips ever.. #abandoned #earthabandoned #grime_nation #abandon_seekers #all_is_abandoned #abandoned_junkies #abandoned_furniture #kings_abandoned #jj_abandoned #rottenfeed #urbexnet #urbexnetwork #urbex_supreme #urban_explorer #urbanexploration #urban_exploration #exploring #exploring_shotz #tv_urbex #the_relics #ic_urbex #ig_urbex #ig_abandoned #forgottenspots #forgottenandlefttorotten #decay_nation #discarded_butnot_forgotten #beautyindecay #nature_takes_over #theforgottenspaces

11. Abandoned church

This is a photo of the church of an abandoned college that's been built halfway through the 19th century. The purpose of the college was to educate priests. Finding approved teachers was quite the challenge and around the 70's in the 20th century the college was left abandoned. Students were forced to follow a strict daily program and had only 2 nights a week private time to spend however they wanted. The college also had its own farm right next to it which was used to feed the students and teachers.. #abandon_seekers_ #all_is_abandoned #abandoned_junkies #abandoned_furniture #kings_abandoned #jj_abandoned #rottenfeed #urbexnet #urbexnetwork #urbex_supreme #urban_explorer #urbanexploration #urban_exploration #exploring #exploring_shotz #tv_urbex #trb_members1 #ic_urbex #ig_urbex #ig_abandoned #igw_decay #forgottenandlefttorotten #decay_nation #discarded_butnot_forgotten #beautyindecay #theforgottenspaces #church

17. Abandoned morgue

This is an abandoned morgue located on a medical site that's been around for over 150 years. The first patient was taken care of halfway around the 19th century. I'm quite sure this morgue wasn't there yet at that time and build in a later stadium, since the site has been constructed in several phases during 50 years. Exploring this beautiful location was great. Entered by climbing against a wall for about 4meters while just being able to hide for security. The relief once safely outside with pictures was huge.. #abandoned #abandonedearth #grime_nation #abandon_seekers #all_is_abandoned #abandoned_junkies #abandoned_furniture #kings_abandoned #jj_abandoned #rottenfeed #urbexnet #urbexnetwork #urbex_supreme #urban_explorer #urbanexploration #urban_exploration #exploring #exploring_shotz #tv_urbex #the_relics #ic_urbex #ig_urbex #ig_abandoned #igw_decay #forgottenandlefttorotten #decay_nation #discarded_butnot_forgotten #beautyindecay #theforgottenspaces #morgue

18. Abandoned greenhouse


19. Abandoned building at a vineyard

This is a picture of what was once the largest wine cellar of Europe. Built halfway through the 20th century with the purpose of storing and shipping as much wine as possible. Later, due to circumstances (trading by sea), the ground floor was used as a customs office till the end of the 20th century. Since then it's been abandoned and looted of its copper pipes and many other items. It's a relic of the industrial past.. #abandon_seekers_ #all_is_abandoned #abandoned_junkies #abandoned_furniture #kings_abandoned #jj_abandoned #rottenfeed #urbexnet #urbexnetwork #urbex_supreme #urban_explorer #urbanexploration #urban_exploration #exploring #exploring_shotz #tv_urbex #trb_members1 #ic_urbex #ig_urbex #ig_abandoned #igw_decay #forgottenandlefttorotten #decay_nation #discarded_butnot_forgotten #beautyindecay #theforgottenspaces #winehouse

If only the walls could talk. You can only imagine the stories they would tell!
