Recognized as a National Heritage Site of France, Abbaye de Saint-Roman served as a cave monastery for over a thousand years. You can explore a chapel, cloisters, tombs, terrace, and walls and networks of underground chambers. The abbey was constructed in the 9th, 10th, 12th, and 15th centuries. The path to the abbey leads past a large chamber and monks' cells to the tomb of Saint Roman in a chapel carved out of the limestone. A walk up to the terrace gives you a clear view of the Rhone and other significant features of the surrounding area.

  • This troglodyte Abbey is exceptional. The course is well done to go around. I recommend!

  • After a climb to 10-minute walk we arrive at the Abbey. The rooms and the graves that we see are impressive. Here a beautiful view on the Rhone.

  • Visit this site to win:-insufficient signs. -path very well laid out in the middle of the Woods in full respect with nature but rather steep. To do in small doses for the elderly.

  • An interesting site ... ok with kid's but be aware it's not the safest place on the planet. From the parking lot it's a good walk up to get to the site. And at the site itself there are stairs, ladders, steps, ... you get a good idea when you check my pictures. I had no trouble with my 4 and 8 year old just keep an eye on them.
  • Not very famous but fabulous to Lake one of the most beautiful places I've found in southern France

  • Very friendly visit. Difficult to access for people with reduced mobility. Superb view. Even for those who live not far from Beaucaire, it's free on proof of address.
