Petit Futé's opinion on GELLONE ABBEY

Plate millesim 2022

A jewel of Romanesque art, this sanctuary founded at the beginning of the 9th century is one of the most important spiritual and cultural centres of the Languedoc. Situated on the Way of St. James, sheltering a piece of the True Cross, it was prosperous until the early 15th century. After being ransacked during the Wars of Religion, part of its cloister was dismantled in the 19th century. Today only the refectory and the abbey church remain of the monastery. They can be visited every day free of charge. Take the time to wander through the narrow streets.

Splendeur de l'art roman.
Dommage que le cloître ait été en partie démantelé...
Le village est très pittoresque.

A éviter en pleine saison touristique... Même si des parkings ont été aménagés en aval de l'Hérault avec une navette depuis le Pont du diable.
Nous y étions à 9h15 du matin en septembre.. c'était parfait !
