Sainte - M d' Alet abbey and cathedral - Pays La Haute-Vallee de l'AUDE, France

Probably of Carolingian origin, the abbey of Notre-Dame d'Alet was once a Benedicitine monastery. An important pilgrimage developed here in the 11 C around a fragment of the True Cross. During this period, the Popes. After a difficult period during the 12 C and 13 C - when some of the monks were even accused of heresy-the abbey experienced a growth in status when Pope John XX11 created a new bishopric in the Upper Aude Valley and established the new cathedral at Alet.  During the 16 C, Alet was marked by the Wars of Religion:  the cathedral and the old abbey were sacked in 1573.  The abbey's beautiful ochre sandstone ruins read like an art history  book, with their attractive combination of Romasque and Gothic architectural features.

The Gothic church of Saint-Martin has retained its Romanesque layout, with one nave and two side aisles.
Situated near Limoux, the church of Notre-Dame de Marceille, has many of the typical features of the 14 C
Languedoc Gothic style.

Gothenburg is a short 30 min north and Varberg 20 min south, making Asa the perfect starting point for outings along the entire west coast.   Everything you need is available just around the corner, including the beach if you simply feel like relaxing.  many of ourguests return year after year.

Many have come here as a child and are now returning with their own children and grandchildren.  We have noticed how new guests  often end up staying longer than planned , extending by a few more days, or returning later in the season on their way back from their travels.  We believe it is simply too difficult to leave an idyll once you've found it .  The Angergord family.

Sainte-Marie d' Orbieu abbey in Lagrasse - Pays Corbieres- Minervois

The village of Lagrasse is the site of one of the largest benedicitine abbeys in the south of France, the Abbaye Sainte - Marie d' Orbieu, founded at the beginning of the Carolingian period.  The monastery
experienced great prosperity and exerted considerable  intellectual influence between the 11 C and 13 C, as well as in the 17 C, with the arrival of the benedicitines of Saint- Maur.  For all these reasons, Lagrassehas a wealth of architectural features to be admired by visitors.  From the Romanaque period, the  abbey has retained the remains of a white marble doorway sculpted by the workshop  of the Master of Cabestany, as well as three apsidioles in the southern arm of the church.  The majority of the medieval buildings were commissioned by Abbot Auger de Gogenx (1279 - 1309), including the rebuilding of the church, the monk's
dormitory and the Chapelle Saint- Barthelemy.  The enormous bell tower was the work of a 16 C abbot, Philippe de Levis, while the main cloisters and the new Abbots' Palace were built in the 18 C.  the medieval bridge over the Orbieu leads to the heart of the village, well worth a visit for its streets lined with medieval houses, the parish church of Saint-Michel and the "Maison du Patrimoine de Lagrasse"

The Pays d' Aude - Narbonne, France

The Pays d' Aude
a cradle of Christianity

The Pays d' Aude is an old Christian land, although the area adopted the new religion of Christianity relatively late, in the second half of the 3C.  The present -day Aude was in the heart of a region known originally as Narbonesis,  and later as Septimania.  The Gallo- Roman civilisation was already established in the region at that  time, and was influenced by many different cultures and religions.  The first christian communities settled in Narbonne, the main town in this part of the Mediterranean. Christians gradually moved into the surrounding countryside, which soon became part of a vast Visigothic kingdom.
Following the creation of a bishopric in Narbonne in the 4C and one in Carcassonne in 587, the practice of
Christianity became widespread in the region.  By the 8 C the religion was so well established in the Pays d' Aude that the area withstood pressure from Muslim incursions.  With the arrival of the Franks, and especially during the reign of Charlemagne and his successors, the Carolingian kings, the expansion of Christinaty was supported by the building of new churches in the centre of rural towns and cities alike.  The parish church became a central rallying point for Christian communities.
it was also at this time that the first monastic communities appeared, all of which adopted the rule of St.Benedict of Nursia.  The Pays d' Aude was soon covered with a " white blanket" of Benedictine abbeys, the the most influential of which included Sainte-Marie de Lagrasse, Saint-Hilaire, Saint-Polycarpe, Sainte-Marie de Monolieu, Saint-Pierre and St Paul de Caunes- Minervois, Saint - Papoul and Sainte- Marie d' Alet.

Saint -Papoul abbey and cathedral - Saint-Papoul, France

The Carolingian monastery of Saint-Papoul was founded in the 8C  In 1317, Pope John XX11 transformed the abbey church into a cathedral.  Thirty-seven bishops controlled this bishopric before it was supressed in 1790. Today the remains of the old monastery can be visited, including the church, with its 14 C nave and 12 C choir, recently restored Baroque decor, 14 Gothic cloister and fine chevet.  The latter is one of the masterpieces of the 12 C Southern Romanasque style and some of its storiated capitals and modillions are the work of the famous Master of Cabestany. The Bishops' Palace, a magnificent building dating from the 17C and 18C, is not open to the public. Saint-Papoul is now used to host musical and cultural events during the summer months.

The Collegiate church of Castelnandary

On the outskirts, ask about the Chapel of  Nuestra Senora del Plan.  And if you want to continue having a good plan, come closer to Montanana in order to enjoy the front with six archivolts and the fussy capitals of the church of Nuestra Senora de Baldos.  In the uninhabited Pano, pay a visit to the Chapel of San Anton and, in la Puebla de Castro, the one of San Roman de Castro .   You will check that the stones sometimes talk or, at least, captivate.

Ribagorza - Spain

Some kilometres before arriving at Obarra, stop at the path in the cathedral of Roda de Isabena, which was erected on the ancient see of the bishopric of Ribagorza.  It began to be built by the chevet at the turn of the XI century.  The three naves and the front would come afterwards, but what will you enjoy, without a doubt, is a walk along its cute cloister weaved with semicircular arches and simple columns with crude capitals.

In the middle of the stillness and the silence, you will find the most Eastern Aragonese monastery.  Look for it between Aren and Pont de Suert, in Sopeira, a cold and beauty village sheltered by an
impressive rocky massif.  The Monastery of Santa Maria de Alaon was founded in the Visigothic
period and was refurbished in the X1 century.  This church is as austere as the life of these villages, with three naves ended in semicircular apes with blind little arches and the Jaca's checker pattern.  It is the simplicity of the stone that becomes art.

In the heart of Sobarbe, the old medieval-town of Ainsa shows up, ready to show you all its charms.  Disappear into the walled castle and its legends, along the paved streets and buildings or just travel along its unforgettable porticoed square.  In one of the corners, the church of Santa Maria is waiting for you since the  X1  and X11 centuries.  Its charm lies in a nave with semicircular apse and a huge front designed with four archivolts that lean on many other pairs of columns with carved capitals.  Have a good look at the crypt riddled with little coloums, the triangular cloister and the huge tower with a square plan that once had a defensive role during the medieval period, a religious one, and that is the perfect top artistically talking.

In the same area, you must pay a visit to the Luzas Church in Tolva.  It has a basilical plan and three naves ended in semicircular apes, as well as a tower belfry.  Doesn't it remind you about the Alaon one? And in Capella, on the banks of the Isabena, look for the reflection of the San Martin Church or the medieval bridge  with seven arches.
On the outskirts, ask about the Chapel of Nuestra Senora del Plan.And if you want to continue having a good plan, come closer to Moiontanana in order to enjoy the front with six archivolts and the fussy capitals of the church of Nuestra Senora de Baldos.  In the uninhabited Pano, pay a visit to the Chapel of San Anton and in La Puebla de Castro, the one of San Roman de Castro.   You will check that the stones sometimes talk or, at least captivate.
