    We had the chance to enjoy this site under a sky sunny with a few clouds allowing to have a set of colors and shadows on the facades. the site is beautiful. for a price of 6.50 euros entry 1 hour guided tour then walk free on the site. The guided tour is highly recommended for the explanations of the different architectures of the Abbey
