Description

Installed in 1143 on the bank of the Garonne, rebuilt on enormous supporting walls in the 13th century, it was one of the three richest Cistercian monasteries in the South.
Rebuilt once again in the 18th century, it now offers you its imposing majesty and serves as a setting for the tableware museum.
