We have always wondered how these old churches and abbeys were build, bearing in mind having no scaffolding/construction machines etc.. Saint Pierre abbey however is even more mind blowing bearing in mind it was started in 1100 AD.
Firstly the church entrance is incredible in both size and architecture with the church inside magnificent not only as a place to worship but to reflect on how little we humans have progressed in the last 1000 years.
The tourist office at the side of the Abbey is available to answer questions and conduct tours of both church and abbey.
The Cloisters give the impression that nothing has changed and we expected the monks to appear at any moment.
Certainly take the time to visit Moissac and also make a point of seeing the placque by the bridge confirming that the residents of Moissac sheltered 500 jewish children during the war with no one telling.
