  • Founded in 1098 by Robert of Molesme, this Abbey is at the origin of the order of Cistercians. Unfortunately, as a result of the French Revolution, there are few remains of the 11th century. Guided tour conducted by a person having a perfect historical knowledge of places was able to fascinate us and instruct us on the history, the life and work of the monks (who also both brought us on the work in the vineyard, the wine and the science of hydraulics). We mainly visit the library (superb show illuminations on the floor) and the Definitory (intended to receive novices and now with exposure).

  • After a historical reading of the construction we made the visit to the remains of the Abbey. A young girl, passionate, we commented the construction, the almost total destruction of the building, but also the life of the monks today but especially yesterday... we were able to admire the remains of such a building with rooms allocated to the writing, to the binding. End of the visit with a trip to the store.

  • Sunday stroll in a historic chard. We learn things if you want. Their well known cheese is very good. A product made in French.

  • A history lesson and etiquette. Not to mention the good cheese of Cîteaux as little earthly pleasure 😊

  • Some may be disappointed by the count of places, but let's not forget that Cîteaux is the cradle of monasticism reformed with Bernard of Clairvaux, where you is essentially God. A stay in full Board it is you! Great memory. Recommend stressed adults, even non-believers.
