Sénanque Abbey, Provence
Notre-Dame de Sénanque is a beautiful abbey you can easily visit if you want to have a look on Gordes. It appears under the road, in a meadow, in the middle of flowers and lavenders.
The abbey is occupied by Cistercian monks, order founder during the Middle Age.
They built many monasteries in every European country and stay famous for their strict architecture. Thus the church presents any superfluous decoration because those faithful men wanted to keep their mind focus on the essential: God.
