The Abbey is located along one of the many routes to St. James to Santiago de Compostela. It has minimal exterior decorative features. It is not to be missed while in Conques.

Stunning cathedral in the middle of a stunning French village. A must see if your in the area. Especially nice on a hot day, as it's so cool inside. 😏

Plain church but still empressive, solemn. Carving above the entrance are magnificent! We were treated to a practice session of the choir and organ! What an accoustics. Very much a working venue still in a must see village.

In the marvellous Conques there is the abbey Ste Foy, that was built in the 8th centuty and later. It is a point from the route of the Santiago de Compostella.
