J'avais souvent entendu parler de ce lieu emblématique pour la région; j'ai donc voulu satisfaire ma curiosité. Accès facile, grand parking, accueil chaleureux, bâtiments extérieurement intéressants, ... more »I had often heard in this emblematic place for the region; I so wanted to satisfy my curiosity. Easy access, large parking, warm welcome, outwardly interesting buildings, an expo shifted on the postcards of the great war and a historical exhibition on the war 14-18. and a building multimedia nine interesting. but the rest € 5 reported on the open surface is not really a good deal. your children may be bored.

L'endroit est assez déroutant...c'est une ancienne abbaye mais transformée en lieu culturel. De l'abbaye, il ne subsiste que quelques endroit... Il faut donc faire fonctionner son imagination et visua... more »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.

Acquired by the Department in 1997, she has been the subject of a restoration program in the long term and proposes a cultural programming (exhibitions, performances). The audio guide offered as an option for 1 euro is indispensable to discover the places: it is very clear and very synthetic. An interesting multimedia designed to present the history of the abbeys in general. A few trees in the Park, and who could be better valued. The current temporary exhibition is rather unrelated. It can be a supplement for children. Very nice site in a beautiful environment.

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.
Elodie BORDESJuly 14, 2017Beautiful 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 💖

Denys GaleterneApril 15, 2014This Abbey is a jewel in a casket, medieval jewel in the setting of the Baronnies. It has everything of the jewel. And it's true that she breathes the centuries, with modesty and elegance, mixing these two classics are the roman and Gothic. It is also in this part of Pyrenean Piedmont drue light. It is regrettable that the jeweler is not at the height of his jewel. The environment of the Abbey is abandoned so that he might be a green space of relaxation and host the Brook (overgrown vegetation walls, inaccessible banks). Inside itself gives an impression of carelessness: without even mentioning the restoration on some sloppy points (fireplace), the interview leaves to be desired (see the armarium claustri or the marble columns of the Chapter Hall whose veins are more visible), which can be put in touch with a level of activity of some agents that can leave puzzled - including the taxpayer. Yet, the maintenance of such building requires no additional expense. Just a few efforts and a constant and careful attention.
