  • Beautiful Abbey Cistercian Church deserved that one does not install an exhibition of Islamic prayer rug, not if only out of respect for the generations of religious who was succeeded there by building these splendid places that make live those who defile them this way. Museums are not lacking for objects of a religion that advocates the murder of every believer other than Mohammedan, right? Stupid!

  • Nice abby, worth a visit if you're in the neighborhood. Hardly any information in another language then French.
  • This Abbey is disappointing. The place would have been interesting if there was no Museum. Indeed, the Interior of the Abbey is used for exhibitions that have nothing to do with the Cistercian order (the Church is used to mount the Muslim carpet). The remaining pieces were not valued and are empty or are used for storage. A disappointment.

  • Great tour. The place is beautiful, the expos are very interesting. Landscaping has been well thought for people with reduced mobility or strollers. The visit is fun.
