Landmark
Take in views of the oak forests and surrounding mountains at Le Prieure de Serrabone, a former monastery famed for its marble Romanesque rostrum from the 12th century. The origins of the priory go back to the 10th century, but most of the remaining architecture was constructed in the 12th century, including a transept and three apses, a cloister, and a bell tower. The walls of the nave provide a good example of the thick rubble stone construction. Enter the cloister to find a variety of sculptures in pink marble, all reflecting a high level of craftsmanship.

  • Access to the Priory is via a steep road. The Priory in him even has little interest, the tour is done in less than 10 min and costs still € 4. Let's say this place has nothing exceptional for my taste, if not her situation. But I don't see the interest to make a detour for if. On the other hand, the gardens are very interesting!

  • Beautiful winding and narrow road since Boulternere. Access from the car park has a huge and interesting very well maintained botanical garden. Rest and picnic areas. The visit in it even is very short. € 4 seems the maximum price.

  • After a bit of road... This place is quiet, relaxing. Bewitching... Beautiful botanical gardens, the song of the water below. The SERRABONE Priory... Chance to visit that day without tourist inside... Home smiling, friendly and full of information on the region. Next time we will bring the picnic and discover walks on foot in this jewel of nature and beauty.

  • If the views are magnificent, the interior does not detracts. Highlights include the Tribune, made of pink marble. It's worth the climb!
