  • How could you not want to visit the home of fizz? Lovely, well preserved abbey on a site dating back to Roman times that is famous for inventing fizzy wine (100 years before becoming prevalent in Champagne). It is said that Don Perignon visited the abbey on a pilgrimage to Spain and learned the technique from the Saint Hilaire monks. A short drive from Carcassonne. Check out the painted ceiling in the Abbot's rooms.
  • Awesome space. Served in Spanish at the entrance of the complex by a dependent helpful. Walk through halls, bends and hiding places deserve peace of mind: the Abbot room, cava's first sparkling wine, Church and cloister... Extraordinary.

  • Beautiful Abbey and possible visit of the whole; cleanliness to stress; Church deserves a more complete restoration and clean furnishings cumbersome and sometimes unnecessary. A small regret: have a more elaborate text or an audio-guide. Thanks for the welcome.

  • Very warm who explains in detail some thing to not missed and some stories of the Abbey to know. I recommend the visit, very nice to discover!

  • The Abbey has been beautifully restored over the past months and the tour is extended to the walled part. Competent and very warm hospitality.
