In the XII century on the site of the house number 9 on the waterfront of Flowers was a house which served as Notre Dame kanonіka Fulbera. It is here played out tragic love story of his niece and her Alaіzy home teacher, philosopher Peter Abelard.

      Lovers, between which there was a difference of 20 years, secretly married, had a son. Alaіzy uncle, who predicted it quite a different future, hired thugs who forcibly castrated Abelard. Path to church career, which he dreamed was closed to him. Heloise and Abelard went to different monasteries and the rest of his days were sending each other messages, which in our time is an example of the literature of the Middle Ages.
