  • I go in this forest since my childhood and I feel perfectly fine. The Church is beautiful, the forest is magical and the view is fabulous. Stop by the shop of the Priory which sells products made on the premises by the monks or products from other abbeys.

  • I have ordered several times different products online and I n "have never been disappointed by delivery or the quality of the products. Soaps are ideal for those with skin allergies, the balsams are very effective and relaxing, the fragrances are very nice especially pink and Christmas. Thanks to the community of Ganagobie for their products of excellence.

Great views, over the Valley of the Durance, low-alpine landscapes, beautiful trees...

  • A beautiful Priory to visit if you go by the... Please park in the parking reserved for visitors. On foot, you can go through the village (this is not the same road). Paths to go there are well-signposted. A store waiting to buy the specialities of the monastery.
