Recommended by locals to visit after Carcassonne, as the other place worthy of visiting in the area...raw in reconstruction amplifies the austerity of living conditions by the Benedictine monks...microcosm of French history...Abbey overlooks the medieval village whose strolling through is a treat...small boutique stores closed...More

I had been here before on a special private tour! I took my friend for her visit. There are now translations in English that make the visit more meaningful for non-French speakers. Also, I would recommend walking through the cemetery across the road .

We enjoyed this beautiful abbey that runs along the Orbieu River in the medieval town of Lagrasse. If you are concerned about entry fees skip the public paid part and just see the part that is run by the monks...much nicer. Access for tickets to...More

A peaceful setting alongside the river, this abbey is worth a visit after wandering through the old village of Lagrasse and crossing the old stone bridge.
