Sénanque December 01 2015
The Abbey of Senanque (L'Abbaye Notre-Dame de Sénanque) is a Cistercian monastery founded in 1148 and located not far from the village of Gordes. The abbey is tucked away in a small valley between steep ridges, surrounded by fields of lavender that are cultivated by the monks who live there. When you stand near the abbey and look at it you are overwhelmed by its harmonious architecture, its dramatic setting, its ancient history, and its deep spirituality.
