    Description

    The beautiful, solid stone abbey of Silvacane rises above La Roque d’Anthéron on a protected natural site. It dominates the Durance plain and is a special place to stop amidst the superb Provençal countryside. Situated close to the Chaîne des Côtes and skirted by truffle oaks, the abbey stands majestically facing the foothills of the Luberon. Silvacane is a jewel of Cistercian art is one of the three famous abbeys in Provence alongside Sénanque and Thoronet. Largely Romanesque in design, Silvacane introduced the first vaults with intersecting ribs into Provence in the 13th century. Thanks to the purity of its forms, its harmonious volumes, understated decoration and the quality of its light, Silvacane is a remarkable example of the Cistercian ideal. Pass through the abbey doors to enjoy its monastic silence, calm restraint and the purity of its stone lines. The abbey offers a diverse cultural agenda from April to September, with the highlights including alternating exhibitions and concerts. The former create a link between this monument to Romanesque architecture and contemporary art. The concerts, which feature a variety of musical tastes, showcase the site’s outstanding acoustics. Silvacane was founded in 1144 as an offshoot of the Abbaye de Morimond. The 12th and 13th centuries witnessed the spiritual and economic growth of Silvacane, which itself established the abbey at Valsainte (in the diocese of Apt). Silvacane was shaken by an attack at the hands of the monks of Montmajour at the end of the 13th century, followed by the great plague, the Hundred Years War and civil unrest. In 1455 the abbey was attached to the chapter of Aix en Provence cathedral, before becoming the parish church of La Roque d’Anthéron when the village came into being in 1513. Protestants and Catholics occupied the abbey in succession from the late 16th century. Silvacane was declared a national property during the Revolution, with the abbey put to agricultural use rather than being demolished. The abbey has been owned by the municipality of La Roque d’Anthéron since January 2008. There is a fun and entertaining treasure hunt to help children explore Silvacane Abbey.
