Petit Futé's opinion on ABBAYE DE BELLEPERCHE
In the thirteenth century, Belleperche counted among the three largest and richest Cistercian abbeys of the Midi. Affiliated with Clairvaux in 1143, she contributed to the economic development of the region. Saved in extremis by the General Council of the department that bought her back in 1983 (she almost became a discotheque!), she is gradually restored and became a museum devoted to the table arts. Vaulted rooms and galleries are included in the vaulted rooms: reception room for eighteenth century guests, dining-room of monks, history halls, alley park, majestic staircase of honor, large three-vessel staircase, brick cloister… Belleperche has since 2002 been a center of history and illustration of the city. art of the table. In the recently restored hotel, the exhibition «Land and Tea» is a major step in the evolution of the museum. This collection includes several hundred items related to tea consumption, mainly manufactured in China for the domestic market and export, as well as in Japan and Europe. Covering the period of the viith in the twentieth century, with a sandstone set of Yixing dated from Ming period, this collection is unique in the West, or even in the world because of the presence of a teapot produced and signed in free writing of the illustrious Shi Dabin potter, which is preserved to date. Each summer, an original exhibition is held in the attic, as well as the most amazing cultural animations.
