This review focuses on the abbey church, but it also includes the village of Conques. If you've studied any medieval art history, this church is a must-see! It is located on the pilgrimage trail to Santiago de Compestela, and if you're lucky as we were,...More

Reportedly the loftiest Romanesque church in France, it is also amazingly well preserved. The tympanum over the entrance is a masterpiece, and the play of light and space inside is wonderful enough to make the faith of medieval pilgrims almost comprehensible, even to my modern...More

This is the most iconic building in Conques, visible from every corner of the town. The entrance is free and the interior is beautiful. A must-see during your visit.

I believe it takes place every evening at 8:30 during the summer: you can listen to the history of the infamous tympanum of the abbatial church, and this is funny and educational. In French though.

Central place in Conques and nice abbey/church. Above the door is a beautiful but slightly weathered timpaan present. A description is in the church only in France. There are extensive descriptions on the internet.
