Montmajour Abbey

The abbey (Abbaye de Montmajour) was founded in 949 by Benedictine Monks. The monument features heritage from a number of different eras, including a necropolis dug directly into the rock complete with a cave chapel from the 11th century, the 12th century Sainte-Croix chapel, a 12th century church with a six-beam nave and highly ornamental cloister, the 14th century Pons de l’Orme tower, and the Saint-Maur Monastery and 18th century buildings, including a cellar added in the 20th century by Rudy Riciotti.
