This ancient Franciscan monastery was built in the 16th century as a chapel and residence for the monks who lived there, but today it also serves as a museum that depicts the Franciscan Order in France since the 13th century. The museum’s magnificent and well-kept complex boasts a variety of flora and fauna, as well as rose-climbing shrubs that give the monastery a rich look especially when in bloom. Inside the museum, there are works of art and written documents from the Renaissance period, and in the courtyard, there is an ancient cemetery where familiar figures such as Matisse, Di Gar, and others are buried. If you arrive during the summer, you should keep up to date with the various shows held in the magical gardens during the sunny season.
