HERITAGE - AULPS ABBAY
Discover our heritage by visiting the Aulps Abbey.
An architectural treasure of the medieval Savoie dedicated to the daily life of the monks of a mountain abbey in the Middle Ages at an altitude of 800m.
The Aulps Abbey's 3-hectare estate houses the church facade and ruins, the cellars, gardens, porch and above all the renovated monastic farm, which opened in 2007 and houses the Visitors' Discovery Centre. This centre - unique in France - gives a vivid idea of the daily routine of monks living in a mountain abbey in the Middle Ages. The abbey's gardens are also a focus for visitors, with a flourishing botanical garden (herbularius) and a vegetable patch (hortus).
