  • A beautiful Cistercian Abbey founded in the 12th century and very well preserved. The monastic buildings and the gardens in the heart of a park are beautiful. Many activities are offered throughout the year. Don't miss it!

  • In a remarkable place this Abbey in austerity is a haven of peace. The life of the Cistercian monks is explained simply, the Church est.immense of coldness and surprises by its dimensions. This year there is an exhibition of paintings and sculptures, ready for Mr SIMONOW, the paintings are good bills but few of them are exceptional however sculptures are beautiful, you can see the Dali, a head of Victor Hugo by Rodin, a sculpture of Camille Claudel and a sculpture by Daumier, an art walk in the old dormitory of the monks to do. Very nice visit

  • Magnificent Abbey which is the subject of a renovation for many years, it's long but it is well worth it. It is well valued by a museum tracing its history. On the floor of the rooms are dedicated to exhibitions of paintings, photos, sculptures well animated. It is very nice work. It is a must-see place, I recommend!

  • Lost in the middle of the Gers, this Abbey is a jewel to be discovered. The visit is very well explained, where one discovers the various expansions over the centuries, and the lives of the monks of each era. Do not forget the immense garden at the rear.

  • €5 entry for what? Building: maintained, renovated and imposing. Outdoor/garden: Created good, but unkempt. Neglected paths, plants left to themselves. Exhibition mediocrity. Admission is not justified.
