    Lovely little Abbey. Staff is friendly and very helpful explaining the history. Definitely a nice place to visit if you have some time and you are looking for a quiet place. Nice contrast to the mass tourism of Carcassonne castle.

    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.

    Another Abbey, included within the sites of the Cathar country, that are worth to be visited. This place suffered the effects of the crusades against the Cathars, and although it has been restored, retains all the charm. The cloister in Gothic and the beautiful decorated coffered ceiling of the Abbot House is interesting.
