Visite guidée de l'Abbaye de St Michel de Frigolet

Tarascon - Guided tour - Du 2 janvier au 31 décembre

L'Abbaye Saint Michel de Frigolet est située en pleine nature, sur la Montagnette, c'est un haut lieu spirituel depuis plus d'un millénaire.
Au centre du Monastère, l'église Saint-Michel et le cloître nous plongent dans la pureté de l'art roman du XIIème siècle. Quelques salles entourant le cloître, comme le châpitre, ont une voûte du XVIIème siècle.
En 1858 une communauté de Prémontrés s'installe à Frigolet. Elle construit alors l'ensemble le plus visible des bâtiments parmi lesquels la Basilique néogothique du XIXème siècle qui enchâsse la chapelle de Notre Dame du Bon Remède du XIIème siècle.
Les statues de Notre Dame du Bon Remède et Saint Michel attirent depuis des siècles de nombreux pèlerins.
