Abbaye du Thoronet 83340 Le Thoronet
A Cistercian wonder in the heart of the Var’s forest !
Built at the end of the 12th Century, the Thoronet Abbey is one of the “3 Provençal Sisters”. Celebrated by the book “Les Pierres Sauvages”, the church & monastery strongly express the Cistercian idealism, full of simplicity & rigour that St Benoit inspired.
The Abbey of Le Thoronet was built according to an ancestral technique, using cut stone and no mortar. It is a powerful expression of the simplicity and rigor of the Cistercian ideal advocated by Saint Benedict.

Visit at your own pace, with the help of a leaflet or audioguide, in an introductory room.

Guided tour (50 min.) to discover the history and architecture of the monument, Cistercian monasticism and the Middle Ages. The tour is accompanied by singing in the abbey church. Open...
