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.

  • A getaway in the Luberon, we made a detour to see the Abbey; We were impressed by the restoration work that has been done! An atmosphere especially serene and yet away from traffic yet in a green and quiet setting.

  • a sacred place that had an intense life in a distant period thanks to courageous and dedicated Cistercians... An acoustic stunning just like that of Thorone in the Var. Bit sets well than this when even with a lot of flowers of water and even a small tent with 3 birds... take the time to discover this place.

  • 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
