Historical Monument

Book your tickets now
The benedictine abbey was built in the 10th century by the tomb of Saint Casarie (6th century). The buildings, rebuilt in the 17th and 18th centuries according to plans by the architect Pierre Mignard, were partly destroyed after the Revolution.

Italian Garden, century-old olive trees and other Mediterrenean plants are spread between the terraces, ponds and remains of the Romanesque churches.

The view from the terraces extends over a vast region dominated by the cliffs of Montmirail, Mont Ventoux, the Luberon, the Alpilles, Avignon and the Popes' Palace.
