Abbaye de Fontfroide

Founded in 1093, the Abbaye became Cistercian in 1145. It played an important role during the crusade against the Albigensians. It is a monastic city full of history, a stone jewel enchased in vegetation whose discovery is impressive. The chapel dates back to the 13th century; do not miss the abbatial church, the cloister, the chapter house, the art museum Gustave Fayet, Odilon Redon’s collection or the gardens. The Abbaye received the 1st National prize in oenotourism in 2011; you should expect an erudite patrimonial, ludic and bacchic visit. You can spend the day.
