  • Little remains of the Abbey, which in eight centuries of history have left their mark on the greatness and decadence. Medieval origins until the revolution, with Abbots as Richelieu and Mazarin, had a very important role. Currently the original Abbey ruins leaving only imagine the imposing structure. Well preserved 17th century the corpodi factory

  • I've been twice, the last this summer in early August. The Abbey of Cluny allows you to take a leap into the past accompanied by useful multimedia AIDS. It is thought that Cluny is only the Abbey but the whole town is worth visiting, a nice walk allows you to grasp fascinating corners.

  • 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.
