  • We were really pleasantly surprised by this small unique Abbey in its kind because entirely carved out of the rock. It's like even a little to a necropolis with its more than 150 (now empty) graves dug in the rock. Surprising, but so beautiful.

  • This completely excavated Abbey in stone is unique. It was founded in the 5th century, and was used until the 15TH century by the Benedictines. It is undoubtedly one of the unique cave dwellings monasteries that exist in Europe. We arrived at it because I found it by chance on the internet... It doesn't seem to be a very visited point turisicamente, but I can assure that it is worth making a long trip to get to know. All the monastery, is wonderful with its chapels, their tombs and large rooms... It looks like a trip to another world... Also advise you climb a little more down the road to the Hill of the Eagle and find an old hermit (for which there is no pay input) Besides being a mind-blowing place by how their shelters and nooks and crannies are preserved, having one of the most impressive views that can be achieved in that area (Rhone Valley). I have a long time there, without crossing me with anyone... only with a goat grazing indifferent to my side. Unforgettable experience! Do not remember exactly the price to enter the Abbey, but it was not expensive. To who walk through the area I advise to spend quite some time to this hidden wonder!

  • 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.
  • Nice balade.la visit continues with the needle! wonderful views
