  • For a tourist, but not that ballad fairy, more cars as before but a parking with shuttles to visit this wonder changing colors! but it will take like an explanation why in this beautiful projects the shuttles are diesel? (but with a cladding wood fills demagoguery)

  • The lot and the Abbey are complementary. The lot is full of alleys, full of shops and restaurants. Access is well organized. If you go by car, has parking lots within 3 km, for 9 euros a day, and which give the right to a shuttle bus to mount. In restaurants, the local speciality are omelets, super aerated and really delicious. The Abbey is at the top of the Hill and is worth a visit.

  • Everything has been said, but just a few tips... The parking is not cheap, but it's the price to pay to discover the mont like floating on the water - those who have experienced the era of car parks just outside the entrance measures the difference in terms of beauty of the landscape. .. Must then visit the wonder, and if possible with a guide: here again it is not given, but once on-site, what a pity to deprive yourself of the best part of the site! Also provide enough to feed the Gulls on the large terrace, they are a little shy!
