Create an itinerary including Abbaye de Lagrasse
Abbaye de Lagrasse, a Romanesque Benedictine abbey, dates back to the seventh century. The abbey was of tremendous religious and political importance in the 12th century and was fortified during the 13th, 14th, and 15th centuries. Look for the small cloister with carved columns depicting The Luxury. The upper gallery leads to the abbey chapel, where you can admire its highly decorated walls. The Romanesque church was constructed with a single nave ending in a presbytery with a transept and three apses, and an octagonal bell tower. During restoration efforts, builders discovered an ancient Romanesque portal with a marble sculpted arch. The monk's dormitory features an ogival vault with a timber framework.

  • Beautiful village, amazing views of the river and bridges. Worth visiting for sure, lots of ateliers in the lovely narrow streets.

  • Enchanting on Christmas Eve, as well as quiet, sombre and lit with candles and lightened with carols and chant.

  • Loved the abbey. I want to return for vespers. I enjoyed the monks' wide selection of honey, as well.
  • Wonderful place! From all the places I've been this one has something very especial. The "monks" are so full of happiness and joy that is contagious. Wonderful place to rediscover God.
