Abbaye de Montmajour

The “Abbaye de Montmajour” reveals 8 centuries of monastic life.

This exceptional architectural ensemble was built in the Middle Ages on the island of Mont Majour. The Abbey incorporates a pre-Roman edifice from the 10th century, an abbey church and a 12th century Roman cloister built by Benedictine monks. Montmajour was extended in the 18th century with the second, monumental Saint-Maur monastery to the west.

Designated world heritage site by UNESCO.
