Beautiful historic abbey. Perfect for peace & tranquillity. I was also intrigued by stained glass windows that fold open in the side chapel.

The nice thing about walking is that you see sites along the way leading to another point of interest. We passed by another interesting building, the St. Victor Abbey, on our way to the Cathedral de la Major. And, because we are tourists, any open...More

It was hard to believe this Abbaye was from the 5th century. Enjoyed the video display which the attendant will change to your language if you ask. The view into the crypt was worth seeing after viewing the video. No cost to tour the Abbaye...More

Somewhat below Notre Dame de la Garde is the Abbaye St Victor also with a magnificent view on the Harbour. Only the church remains from the monastery. The outside looking like a foreboding fortress and its crypt is worth visiting. At this time a surreal...More

Yes 2euros and it depends if you choose to sit in the crypt for meditation which can be a beautiful experience. 45 mins to view and read.
