What to expect

Nestled in the depths of a peaceful Provençal valley nourished by crystalline springs, the Thoronet Abbey stands as a perfect example of Cistercian architecture. It offers history enthusiasts a spiritual interlude within its 12th-century stone walls. Purchase your tickets on Ticketeaser and follow in the footsteps of the white monks. Discover their austere life, combining prayers and artisanal tasks, from the cellar where they produced olive oil and wine to the parlour where they exchanged a few words. Then, let yourself be guided by a cappella voices and sacred music notes. They rise each summer towards the barrel vault of the church during the International Meetings of Medieval Music.
