  • An outing to do. For both the outside and inside, framework for the exhibition that deserves a visit.

  • a nice enough removed place that offers a beautiful evocation of the religious architecture of the end of the middle age to the revolution. a curiosity with the remains of a Gallo-Roman villa just next door.

  • Nice abby, worth a visit if you're in the neighborhood. Hardly any information in another language then French.
  • Very nice, the place is peaceful. Historical contributions are interesting and little more with the temporary exhibition.

  • A beautiful place in all weathers with a wide variety of exhibitions!

  • See especially for the outside and the walls. The Abbey is located near the village of Valencia on sex and on the road of Cassaigne. It is built at the edge of the fuck. A beautiful alley of plane trees leads to the buildings. You can easily Park your car for free. The paid visit is disappointing. Damage

  • 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.
