In 982 he was 4 martyrs: Armand, Luce, Audale and Alexandre giving rise to processions because their relics are here preserved. Excavations dug under the Abbey have updated of the Roman remains. In 1790 there were only 7 monks in the Abbey until they leave.
Not to big but a lovely abbey!
One of the two historical things we found to do in Caunes Minervois. Ther architecture is very beautiful and worth the visit, both inside and outside in the gardens. Make sure to go underneath the abbey to see the original foundation, mostly just for the history of seeing stone laid down 1,200 years ago.
A little disappointed by this place even more attractive from outside. I prefer the approach of Fontfroide. Not to visit one my choice is made.
Very nice and beautiful landscape and of belle.randonnees.
In the Abbaye de Caunes-Minervois of red marble, which briefly built behind the town, is used abundantly. Red, yellow, green and white marble were used in the right Seitenkappele.
