This is a wonderful Abbaye and I recommend to visit it. There is no travel guide on Burgundy which coud afford not to mention Abbaye Saint-Philibert. However, I also recommend to rent an audioguide (2,50 EUR) as it is really worth it. It provides lots...More

A beautiful abbey beautifully maintained. The Taize music that was playing today was so appropriate and appreciated.

In the centre of Tournus, easily accessible. Able to access the upper floors and the crypt. A number of ok cafes surrounding to relax before or after a visit.

The Abbey in itself is worth a visit for its fine arhchitecture and setting. Would recommend combining it with a walk around Turnus, which is a delightful little town and a visit to the Saone quayside.

The place is impressive and this is a beautiful part of town well worth visiting, sort of surprize in such a small town.

10th century church full of artifacts and information. The underground crypt is interesting and spooky at the same time. Great information throughout the church and crypt as well as the monks' residence/dining hall next door.
