  • Ruins, Yes, but what quality! Very interesting tour improved by an interactive support very well done and helpful to feel the richness of the place! We were very well greeted which beautifies some more over this site. Historic, this place full of history is a must-see!

  • A heritage treasure to visit. The Abbey is a set of ruins, of which the oldest date back to the 7th century. You can admire the remains of a massive cathedral of Norman Romanesque style. The tour, exciting with great knowledge of the guide and the preferred interactive format, makes us travel through 1400 years of history. The little extra: augmented reality can be enjoyed with a Tablet!

  • A great scenic location. Very good for photographers.
  • Terrific and intriguing place
  • Surprising to see how large it was when it was complete and how much of it was taken down to be used as building materials. Easy parking. Well worth the visit.
  • Who has no idea about the story and who does not know the enormous importance of this monastery, which should save the visit. The visit is highly recommended for all others. Without a doubt the most beautiful ruin of France and with great history.
