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.

A very beautiful old middle-age abbey, that really is a must visit when in lagrasse.
Wouter PenninckxWell-preserved Abbey. There are 2 visits possible. (Each to €4) The visit of the newer part where still fathers life can only be visited in the afternoon. We visited so the old part.

Franck PriolaGreat Abbey with its old tower fortified still in very good condition well that never finished. Prefer to visit the party deprived of the Abbey (€4), which will allow you to visit in the middle of the canons and you approach closer to the tower. You can also walk in the gardens of the Abbey. The visit of the public part is also € 4.
Peter WalterA wonderful place. You should deal but necessarily with the painful history of the Cathars.
