Monument Tourist Spot
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.

  • We drove here especially from Menerbes, quite a distance, as my husband was keen to visit. On arrival at the carpark there was a notice at the start of the long path up, in French only, to say it was ...  more »

  • 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.
  • 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.

  • A place a little hard to find, but the walk from the parking to the Abbey is well appointed and friendly. The Abbey and the visit worth, even if the visit is not very long.
