Founded in 1093 by a few Benedictine monks, Fontfroide was linked in 1145 to the Order of Cîteaux and quickly became one of the most powerful Cistercian abbeys in Christianity. The abbey is located in the heart of the Fontfroide Massif made up of 4000 hectares of unspoiled nature. Bathed by the Fontfroide stream, this sumptuous 12th and 13th century Cistercian complex. is nestled in the heart of a typically Mediterranean landscape. During the Crusade against the Albigensians, it asserted itself as a bastion of Catholic orthodoxy in the face of Catharism. After the monks' last departure in 1901, Gustave and Madeleine Fayet bought it in 1908, restored it, embellished it. Inside, the terraced gardens on the hills are open to visitors. They are labeled Remarkable Gardens and LPO refuge. The abbey offers a new tablet visiting experience for everyone. The last entry is made 30 minutes before closing.
