Montmajour abbey

Interesting
The pine woods of the hill of Monmtmajour rise up like an outpost of the Alpilles out of the plain. The remains of the abbey include the lovely 12C church of Notre-Dame, the Romanesque cloister with its carved capitals, the Tour de l'Abbé (a tower overlooking the Alpilles and the Crau plain), the Saint-Pierre chapel, hollowed out of the rock, and, 200m/656ft from the abbey, the delightful 12C chapelle Sainte-Croix.
