What to expectIn the medieval period, the Cistercian order flourished throughout Provence. When visiting the Silvacane Abbey, one cannot help but be dazzled by the tranquil beauty of the place. At every turn, visitors are struck by the harmony of the volumes and the elegance of the lines. The Cistercian order had indeed chosen to forgo overly adorned embellishments to prioritize a creation entirely dedicated to spirituality and simplicity. This jewel of Cistercian art, situated on the banks of the Durance about half an hour's drive from Aix-en-Provence, is fascinating to explore with family, whether one is interested in the medieval period or not.
