What to expect
In medieval times, the Cistercian order was pre-eminent throughout Provence. At Silvacane Abbey
the visitor is surrounded by the beauty and peace of an extraordinary 12th Century building that expresses the philosophy of the order. At every step you will be struck by the harmony of the architecture and the simple elegance of the soaring design. The Cistercian order spurned over-decorative detailing in favour of a building devoted to spirituality. This superb example of Cistercian art is on the banks of the Durance River, about half an hour's drive from Aix-en-Provence. Silvacane Abbey makes for an enchanting family visit, whether you're interested in architecture or not. With Ticketeaser
