town, Meuse departement, Lorraine region, northeastern France. It lies on the right bank of the Meuse River, 22 miles (35 km) south-southeast of Verdun. The town grew around a Benedictine abbey, founded in 709. The abbey buildings (17th- and 18th-century) are now occupied mainly by a school and a library. The Churches of Saint-Michel and Saint-Etienne have works by the 16th-century sculptor Ligier Richier, who was a native of the town.
