Abbey of Thoronet

Nestled at the bottom of a peaceful Provencal valley with crystal clear springs, the Abbey of Thoronet is a perfect example of Cistercian architecture. It will offer history lovers a spiritual parenthesis between its 12th century stone walls. Buy your tickets at and walk in the footsteps of medieval. Discover their austere life combining prayers and handicrafts, from the cellar where they made olive oil and wine to the parlor where they exchanged a few words. Then let yourself be guided by the cappella voices and notes of sacred music. Every summer they rise up to the church's vaulted arches during the international meetings of medieval music.
