Abbaye de Lagrasse, Lagrasse

(280+ reviews on the web)
Ruin
Abbaye de Lagrasse, a Romanesque Benedictine abbey, dates back to the seventh century. The abbey was of tremendous religious and political importance in the 12th century and was fortified during the 13th, 14th, and 15th centuries. Look for the small cloister with carved columns depicting The Luxury. The upper gallery leads to the abbey chapel, where you can admire its highly decorated walls. The Romanesque church was constructed with a single nave ending in a presbytery with a transept and three apses, and an octagonal bell tower. During restoration efforts, builders discovered an ancient Romanesque portal with a marble sculpted arch. The monk's dormitory features an ogival vault with a timber framework.

  • because of the seniority of the places, year 729, the quality of the restoration, as well as by the curious Division of the buildings as a result of the Revolution, this religious building is well worth a visit.

  • Beautiful Abbey who found a second life fairly recently. Steeped in history who hides many secrets. Thanks to the brothers for their sense of hospitality, we had a long discussion with one of them interesting!

  • A beautiful place full of history near the river Orbieu, which crosses Lagrasse. Brings a charm to the village.

  • A wonderful place. You should deal but necessarily with the painful history of the Cathars.
