Close to Sète, near the pond of Thau, this abbey is a poem in stone in the Lord’s vineyard. One of the best preserved monuments of Cistercian art.
Admire the cloister, its magnificent fountain and gardens of the twelfth and fourteenth centuries, the Gothic church, the chapter house and the monastic outbuildings. One of the few abbeys to have kept its wine estate, the Abbey de Valmagne has produced great, quality wines for eight centuries, today in the appellations of “Coteaux du Languedoc” and “Grès de Montpellier”.
