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.

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...
ça grimpe mais ça reste une petite balade facile a faire en toutes saisons. on visite les ruines de l'abbaye, on y rencontre des chevres sauvages, et on a un magnifique point de vue sur beaucaire more »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
Ce sont des ruines d'abbaye qui méritent vraiment la visite. - le site est superbe, accroché à son rocher surplombant le Rhône au loin - les vestiges sont bien conservés, et ne ressemblent à aucun aut... more »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.
Not very famous but fabulous to Lake one of the most beautiful places I've found in southern France
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.
Very interesting this Abbey in part in the rock
Disappointed that even during days of heritage site is paid.
