Recognized as a National Heritage Site of France, Abbaye de Saint-Roman served as a cave monastery for over a thousand years.

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.

  • We took advantage of a stay at Maussane (residence Lagrange) to visit nobleman and Saint-Roman place is fascinating! Largely dug in the rock and completed by walls we well imagine how this community from the top of the building lived 360 ° view is downright sublime: the Rhône Roach dam Vallabregue Avignon (in the distance) the rise is "long" (1/4 hour) no wheelchair (some markets) the price (€5.50) seemed to us a little expensive! but hey all is incredible the remains of graves fascinating a good afternoon

  • On the advice of the boss of the hotel the President of Bellegarde, we visited this place steeped in history. We arrived at the time of the tour by a Mr passionate and humorous. Site, the framework and the views are beautiful and 5,50e very reasonable entry. We will return with pleasure

  • Troglodytic site which is accessible from a parking lot (on the side of Beaucaire). Attention, the rise is not recommended for disabled people (15-20 min with a good pair of basketball). At the entrance, a cabin a bit shabby welcomes us for a very reasonable price (by people and free 5.5e for the - 18). The visit can be done without a guide through a leaflet given to hospitality. From 30-45 minutes to visit. The weekend a volunteer makes us a guided tour rewarding with a nice touch of humor without seeing the time past (about 2 hours). I recommend it for those who want to get out of the usual tourist circuit.

  • 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
