  • The place is quite confusing... it's an old Abbey but transformed into cultural place. Of the Abbey, there are only few places... Therefore, to operate his imagination and visualize with modern multimedia (videos) available, the configuration of the time. The audio guide is indispensable, otherwise it will not appreciate. The Park is uneven; Nice no place and most basic on the side of the gardens. Some very fine specimens of trees. There is a program of cultural activities year-round with lectures and workshops in this month of August 2016, a somewhat wacky show funny giraffes, distorting mirrors, a gargantuan kitchen (well blended) and full of difficult to describe or comment on other oddities. Beat-up but exposure to see if one is not too conformist.

  • Abbaye de l'Escaladieu (Escaladieu Abbey) was founded in 1142 when Cistercian monks left the monastery at Capadur to found their own abbey. Escaladieu Abbey was built at the confluence of the Luz and Arros rivers near the castle of Mauvezin. The abbey flourished from the 12th to 14th centuries. It served as the burial place for the counts of Bigorre and was a stop on the pilgrimage route to Santiago. Escaladieu Abbey was built in the simple Romanesque-Cistercian style. The cloister included a sacristy, refectory, kitchen, and scriptorium. It was closed around 1830. All the east buildings of the Escaladieu Abbey remain intact, including the 12th-century chapter house, where the monks gathered to read the rule of St. Benoit, and the scriptorium, where they copied and illuminated manuscripts. The nave of the abbey had six bays, one of which was destroyed during the 16th-century Wars of Religion. The abbey has been owned by the Conseil Général des Hautes-Pyrénées since 1997. It is open to visitors and is used for conferences and special events.
  • Beautiful place, each year there is a theme. In 2016 was on trips to Africa in the 19th century, this year it is on the great war and a cyclist in 1919. It's upsetting 💖
