Located deep in its Provençal valley, the Abbey of Sénanque is one of the most pure examples of the primitive Cistercian architecture. Just like during the 12th century, a community of Cistercians monks is currently living in the Abbey of Sénanque, still following the rule of Saint Benedict.
In a spirit of sharing, the monks chose to open of the abbey to visitors.
During the tours, the monks stay into the monastic enclosure where they keep praying; that is why they ask you to respect the atmosphere of silence and contemplation.
Have a nice visit!
