Photo of Senanque Abbey

Apse from North

Glimpse of the apse and tower of the abbey church from across lavender fields to the north. Nestled in a valley in Provence, the Cistercian Abbey of Senanque was founded in 1148. The austere and harmonious church, built in the Romanesque style, was consecrated in 1178.
