Abbaye de Silvacane, La Roque-d'Antheron

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.

    We attended a concert of piano in deplorable conditions: no welcome for people with reduced mobility and rows of chairs so close to one another that it is impossible to see the pianist

    We were beautifully charmed by these ancient and sacred places to hear the concert of Pierre Hantaï harpsichord. Good acoustics of the cloister and architecture contribute to a good serenity. The tour had previously clarified on his very long and chaotic history. Sobriety and harmony her sum, especially when one realizes that this abbey was built according to the rules of the Golden number.

    A visit to this Abbey must respect domestic. In this digital world who lives in fast forward, pause in the past is good. Visit facilitated by an explanation of each piece. Excessive price of € 7.50 for a monument which requires no maintenance.

    Perhaps the least known of the Provençal Cistercians, but she is no less worth the detour. Super clean and visit! Thanks to the whole team.

    Beautiful edifice. A bit expensive. For insiders. Attention, little easy passages to the PMR.

    Interesting visit with the guide of this Cistercian Abbey, one of the three Provençal sisters. The guide is very nice and provided numerous explanations on how life was in this Abbey.
