Abbaye Impériale

Monastery in Baume-les-Messieurs

Baume-les-Messieurs' abandoned Benedictine Abbaye Impériale has an exquisite polychrome Flemish altarpiece dating from the 16th century (the time when the abbey, which grew from a simple 7th-century monastic cell, was at its apogee).

Combined tickets to the Grottes de Baume and the abbey cost €13/6 per adult/child.
