Situated, since the 12th century, deep in its Provençal valley, the Abbey of Sénanque is one of the most pure examples of the primitive Cistercian architecture. Just like during the 12th century, a community of Cistercians monks is currently living in the Abbey of Sénanque, still following the rule of Saint Benedict. The monastary is also home to beautiful lavender fields that are an endless flow of purple during the summer blooming season. (Gordes, France)
