  • Ideal location to 350 m above the Durance so point of view of choice. We only visit the Church, overlooking the cloister. Main attraction: the Romanesque choir, unique mosaics. The place is charming and enchanting. Worth the small road that winds through the Woods to access. The monastery is located in the commune of Ganagobie with Forcalquier!

  • Nice place with pleasant garden and beautiful views
  • Very relaxing, clean place. A beautiful Priory with a beautiful garden inside. A retreat is possible. 2 days minimum to maximum of 8 days. The meal is understood what this says the donation is free. Offices are also free to participate or not, but it is still desired. Also you can call to a priest for a follow-up during your stay. Sincerely c is an experience to make at least once in her life. All religions and beliefs are welcome.

  • And a monastery atop a hill where there is one of the most beautiful mosaics of France. But the thing that I liked was the mass of the friars of the monastery. Worth for the mystical environment that you create during their songs.

  • A superb place, at the top of the Durance: beautiful forest and beautiful views all around. The shop is interesting, but check if the home is open before you get there.
