Abbey of Beaulieu-en-Rouergue
The perfect blend of history and modernity, this 13C Cistercian church in a very pure Gothic style was turned into a Contemporary Art Centre in 1970. Works by Simon Hantaï, Michaux, Serpan, Dubuffet, Roger Bissière, Arpad Szenes and Maria Vieira da Silva create new emotions in this remote site in the Tarn-et-Garonne. In the summer, the abbey houses thematic exhibitions and hosts musical events.
