Abbaye de Silvacane, La Roque-d'Antheron

(3.9/5 based on 150+ 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.

  • With his two other sisters Provençal Sénanque and Le Thoronet, she is one of the jewels of Cistercian architecture; its ongoing restoration refurbishing its superb value! The history of the Abbey, which is linked to that of La Provence, is very well detailed. Similarly the explanations on the operation and the life in the Abbey are very well developed. The store has many products and the library is very complete. An important step for all lovers of history and architecture.

  • I know this place for a long time. I used to play child. Over the years, the Abbey is out of its ruins and resumed life. Beautiful artistic manifestations, pleasant place to walk.

  • This Abbey is a magnificent example of Cistercian architecture. Its austerity makes her very beautiful. As its framework, it is relaxing and helps the meditation. Its worth a visit to the Roque of Antheron.

  • Magnificent. Exteriors as interiors (stained glass, vaulted,...)

  • 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!

  • Nice, but abandoned and empty inside the Abbey operated as a tourist attraction
