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. Work out when and for how long to visit Abbaye de Saint-Roman and other Beaucaire attractions using our handy Beaucaire tour planner.

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.View original
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.
