4/5 based on 140+ reviews on the web
Originally, a Cistercian monastert in La Roque-d’Antheron, Rhone, France, and the abbey was founded in the twelfth century. The government of France bought the estate in the mid nineteenth century, but acquired the rest of the buildings only about a century later. It is one of the three Cistercian abbeys in Provence known as the "three sisters of Provence" ("les trois soeurs provençales"), the other two being Sénanque Abbey and Le Thoronet Abbey; Silvacane was possibly the last-established. The structures, of the late 12th and 13th centuries, are mostly Romanesque, with some Gothic elements.

  • Quiet and relaxing. Jewels of Cistercian art, the Abbey is sumptuous. It has in the refectory of the modern stained glass made by Sarkis representing fingerprints going to all shades of yellow to reddish! A success story for stained glass mounted in the 2000s!
