Cloitre de Cadouin, Cadouin

3.7
Built in the 12th century and renovated in the 15th, Cloitre de Cadouin represents a Gothic architectural gem. For centuries, monks here devoted their lives to prayer and hosted the shroud of Cadouin, long believed to have been the cloth placed on Jesus' face after his crucifixion. In the past, pilgrims visited and venerated this cloth, believed to possess healing properties. Today, you can tour the cloister and visit a reproduction of the shroud.

  • The cloister is really beautiful and very well restored and maintained. Certainly it isn't big, it makes you want to see more. But it's worth to a stop

  • One of the essential passages of the region. Visit to the cloister paying a little fast but 2 buildings juxtaposed (and free) are worth the look.

  • Beautifully decorated cloister and part of Cadouin Abbey. According to the legend, it housed the shroud which became obligatory for pilgrims heading for Santiago.

  • Old abbey from around 12th. On the way is Saint Jacobs route
  • Entry fee is ridiculously high, but you soon discover this place has a long history of fleecing tourists.
  • A marvel! It is a real lace of sculptures... Very friendly staff. Adorable village. Take the ticket matched with Biron Castle! It's wonderful!

  • Great site. In addition we had the chance to benefit from a night show on the history of the shroud. Exciting and great to come in these historic sites by the light of torches (show in summer)
