  • After 1 hour drive and beautiful landscapes, we arrived at the Abbey of Arles on CET for a visit expected, but visits were interrupted for "reasons of religious service" and they have never taken... What a pity!! We therefore found the village, Park City Hall (to see interesting villa), the alleys and the craft center but... Monday almost everything was closed... (this is not yet the season). The arts and crafts exhibited for sale was interesting we have the opportunity to do some shopping. Will we return?

  • Great Abbey with a magnificent ambulatory, with beautiful carved columns. Founded in 778, the Sainte-Marie Abbey Benedictine Abbey boasts to be the oldest Carolingian Abbey of Catalonia. The Romanesque church with three aisles, houses a pipe organ Schmidt of the eighteenth century. The Gothic cloister of the 13th century is adjoined to the Church. On the front of the Church, a Holy Tomb, sarcophagus of the fourth century, secretes inexplicably clear water when it housed the relics of the Saints Abdon and Sennen. San forget the grave or arisen by miracle water.
