Photographer's Note

place of beauty and serenity


SILVACANE ABBEY is a former Cistercian monastery in the municipality of La Roque-d'Anthéron in the Provence.

It was founded in the 12th century and ceased to be an ecclesiastical property in the French Revolution. The church was acquired by the French state in 1846, the remaining buildings not until 1949.

It is one of the three Cistercian abbeys in Provence known as the "three sisters of Provence" ("les trois soeurs provençales"), the other two being Sénanque and Le Thoronet.


"Sculpture & Passages" was the temporary exhibition by the French sculptor GEORGES GUYE, when we visited it. The light falls on one of his works here.
