Spectacularly preserved and restored, large abbey near Narbonne. Black plague reduced the monks numbers from 250 to 20. The church with its 20 m height is impressive as is the cloister and courtyard. Very worthwhile.

Monastery was founded in 1093. Beautiful church, peaceful, beautiful gardens, lot of history and very good restaurant. We lived the visit.

Impressive renovation of a once severley damaged abbey. No longer an abbey, but you can still feel the spirit of the monks hanging around. Or working. Or praying. Or drinking beer, because the abbey has its own beer.

Hello, as far as I know there isn't such possibility. We rented a car and drove there on our own. I can really recommend it.
