  • 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.
