  • A must of provencal Romanesque art: beautiful set of a novel very pure. To emphasize the unity of the whole. We can try to imagine the life of these monks at the time, a very good time.

  • With a fair price of €7.50 (free for Europeans under 26), you get access to the whole abbaye and you can fallow a guide with no additional fee. Our guide was an encyclopedia that knew the entire story of the abbey with passion. Entering the church, she will explain the incredible acoustic and will demonstrate it with a religious song that she will sing with talent. It is essential to follow a guide to understand everything about this place. It is wonderful, well preserved and managed with passion and respect.
  • Very beautiful abbey with quiet surroundings try to avoid the rush by delaying your visit to late afternoon .
  • Not informative or interesting. The interior is plain, unfurnished and boring. The outside gardens were mostly dead and uncared for. It's a waste of time and money.
  • Wouldn't stay all day but certainly worth a look. Kids find it possibly a little boring though!
