  • We visited the beautiful Abbey of Flaran on Wednesday, October 26. The place is beautiful and exudes the calm and serenity. Beautiful cloister which opens on an austere church certainly but which soothes the visitor. The Abbey also allows to discover and to appreciate a wonderful collection of paintings and old masters very renowned which is located on the first floor of the Abbey. An absolutely must visit in the heart of the Gers. Michel and Marie Moulin Lyon

  • The guide was really great and very well explained to us the life of the monks. The frame is very nice even if there remains to do renovations. The private exhibition was welcome even if it prevented the authenticity of the Abbey which was a pity.

  • 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.
