Description

Following in the footsteps of hermits who had converted the "Fontaine du Rocher" to Christianity, monks occupied the caves in the cliff, setting them up for use as storerooms or refuges when the abbey's buildings were destroyed. You can visit the heating room, washhouse, dovecot, the mysterious Cave of the Last Judgement and its low reliefs, as well as the Miraculous Fountain of the Rock.
