  • A place just simply beautiful. I had the opportunity to visit the Abbey at an event around the world of Harry Potter (dance of sorcerers by Magical Events). The place and the theme were perfectly fittings! Architecture and beautiful green areas.

  • Unfortunately today very little remains of the historic Abbey. a movie (worth seeing at the beginning of the visit) tells the story very well and makes it clear (sadly) how little remains to this day. The structure is to be visited. Perhaps still have a bad taste in my mouth at the end, as the part is no longer present far exceeds that which still exists.

  • The site is an essential part of the region, and that is understandable. Note that 3D movie allows to imagine the great loss due to the partial destruction of the site. The audio guide is more or less interesting

  • Interesting site. But very frustrating because almost no explanations. The Abey deserve a higher level of historical and economical context.
  • Very impressive, i.e. if you think about how large the old Cathedral must have been (the Computersimulation with the movable Monitor is a good help!); the Areal is also very beautiful.
  • A must see, a pity that inside not more info is given or shown
  • Very nice historic site. There is not much left of the famous cathedral of Cluny, but the complex of the monastery is big and there is enough to see to get a feeling of the medieval grandeur.
