Abbaye de Silvacane

The history of La Roque d'Anthéron is closely connected to that of the Abbaye de Silvacane. It was on the lands of Guillaume de La Roque that Cistercian monks began to build the foundations of the Abbey in 1144. Visitors are struck by both the powerful overall balance and stark beauty that characterise Silvacane, a gem amongst the Cistercian abbeys of Provence alongside Sénanque and Le Thoronet.
