Notre-Dame d'Orsan Priory Gardens

Recommended
The gardens are organised around the cloister, Cloître des Charmilles, symbolic centre of the monastery, where four paths, representing the four rivers of paradise, converge at a fountain. This space serves the numerous adjacent gardens, which are separated by trellises, clipped hedges and trained trees. You will notice the presence of three classic elements in every monastery garden: vines, wheat and olive trees, symbolising wine, bread and holy oil.
