What will I do during this tour ?

A tour that will bring you back in times

Lagrasse, named as one of the most beautiful villages of france. In the valley of the River Orbieu, Lagrasse sits in the foothills of the Pyrenees in a region renowned for its wine production in the surrounding hills, the Corbières.

Lagrasse is an attractive village, with an Abbey – permission for its construction was given by Charlemagne in 783.

The two highlights of the village are the Abbey and the bridges, although the narrow medieval streets of the village itself are also very attractive and the remains of the town walls can still be seen.

Lunch in a restaurant in Lagrasse itself.

In the begenning of the afternoon we depart for the Fontfroide Abbey where you can explore at your leisure with an audio guide. One of the best preserved Cistercian monuments in France, Fontfroide Abbey was founded in 1093 on land given to some Benedictine monks by the Vicomte de Narbonne.
