The history and the architecture with the symbolic detail of the columns of the cloister are beautiful.

Visited with friends who live in Moissac, lots of history if you study stone carvings you will enjoy the Cloister, the courtyard is very impressive. They also have a reception area where you pay a small entrance fee and have the opportunity to ask questions.
