Gorgeous abbey. Luckily we had a French speaker with us, as no English translations were available. We enjoyed our visit greatly.

Do not avoid visiting here. Unless you speak fluent French get an audio guide. Wonderful arches on top of massive columns. Mosaics a plenty and don't miss the crypt.

This large church in a small town is well worth a visit. You enter an impressive vestibule and proceed through it to the even more impressive church. Everything is held up on huge stone columns, taller inside the main church than in the vestibule. Overhead are arches and vaults covering the building, with the central ones supported by perpendicular ones in the aisles. This was an ingenious solution at the time---the eleventh century. How many other buildings have you ever seen from the eleventh century?? There are also remains of the adjacent buildings that were in use when this was a monastery. Be sure to stop here if you are in the area.

Most info in the abbey was in French so we rented audio guide from tourist office across the street. The guide explained history of church and village. Interesting

Don’t miss Tournus and its beautiful medieval church! The crypt the mosaics the arches, the small garden, everything is beautiful and well kept. It’s Roman art as its best.
