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 nice tour, which however does not justify, it seems, an entry at €7 50... The explanatory plate provided in the entry is succinct and the audio guide in supplement (€2)

  • It is a Cistercian Abbey (12th century) we visited on a beautiful sunny day. The strong light that filtered from the entrance and from openings above it allowed us to see full the harmonious and simple shapes that characterize the counting procedure. Beautiful cloister, formed by galleries with a barrel vault, which is the heart of the complex. The cost of entry is € 7.50 and, keeping the ticket, you can get a discount on the other 5 sites belonging to the same circuit.

  • 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
