Abbaye de Montmajour
Several miles away from Nimes, on a rock surrounded by a swamp, is the Montmajour Abbey. Founded in 948 by Benedictine monks, the monastic complex is composed of a retreat from the 11th century, a medieval type monastery, a classic style monastery and a watchtower.
Listed as a French historical monument in 1840, the architectural heritage and the carved decors of the abbey got it listed as a UNESCO world heritage site.
The site and its protected areas, favourable for meditation, also house collections of photographs all along the year, and as an apogee, the annual festival of Photography of Arles. Finally, the top of the Pons de l’Orme tower offers an exceptionnal view on the cities of Arles, Tarascon and La Crau.
