Centuries of history
Founded in 1138 by the Count of Pallars, the Abbey of Combelongue is one of the rare Premonstratensian abbeys in the south of France. On the way to St-Jacques de Compostelle, Louis VII stopped there in 1154. Rich and prosperous until the XNUMXth century, it was damaged during the wars of religion, but was maintained until the Revolution under the regime of the commende.
Built entirely in brick in a region where stone abounds, it mixes, in this unusual material, a typical decoration of the first Romanesque art and "Mudejar" forms.
Gardens which surround it reflect its history, from the 2012th to the XNUMXth century, from the medieval garden to the French garden; in XNUMX they received the label "Remarkable Garden" of the Ministry of Culture.
