  • Passing through the Chair God, the visit of the Abbey is mandatory. Among several popes, it is especially Clement VI that has marked this place in financing and in being buried there. Do not miss his tomb, stalls, and the fresco of the Macabre dance with its description. Cloister in work. The village is a little dead in may under a cold wind on the porch.
