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.

  • You'll be transported to another era... Extraordinary, to see it... More in addition to the monastic cells carved into the rock, a fabulous view awaits you outside on most courses... Too bad for the maintenance of the surroundings that leave a little to be desired...

  • It climbs but it's still a short easy walk to do in all seasons. We visit the ruins of the Abbey, you can meet wild goats, and we have a beautiful view of beaucaire

  • These are ruins of Abbey which are really worth a visit. -the site is superb, hooked to its rock overlooking the Rhône river at the far - remains are well preserved, and are unlike any other - the guide is passionate and exciting. It makes us discover the rich history of this site through anecdotes and great moments, interspersed with comments full of malice. He leads the centuries and reveals fascinating historical items beside which we would have gone without us noticing, if we had visited the site only. It was cold but we feasted.

  • 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.
  • Peaceful place... Views of the Rhone, and the beautiful alpine Abbey dug into the rock. A visit with a beautiful blue sky. Be careful to watch young children, people with a disability will have difficulty also.

  • Very nice site. Cheap entry. Parking can be a bit small for the summer crowds, but in the spring it's perfect.
