DISCOVER THE CISTERCIAN ABBEY NOTRE-DAME DE LA PAIX IN CASTAGNIERS
Earth blessed by heaven, the Côte d’Azur inevitably gives birth to religious vocations.
The numerous convents and monasteries testify to this spiritual path. And some still shelter vibrant communities. Inland from Nice in Castagniers, the Abbaye Notre-Dame de la Paix is home to 14 nuns. To provide for their needs they have developed a know-how that couldn’t be more tempting: chocolate making! For over 60 years, the small chocolate factory has been at work, always ensuring the quality of pure cocoa butter chocolate – on average they produce two tonnes a year.
