Description

Founded on marshland in the 11C, this Cistercian abbey with pink-tiled roofs and a small belfry, stands near the banks of the River Durance. The church was built on a slope between 1175 and 1220. The cloister and monastic buildings date from the 13C. In decline since the 14C, and abandoned following the Wars of Religion, it was bought by the State and has since been restored. A fine example of the sobriety extolled by its founding order, its harmonious lines are enhanced by the quality of the light.
