Abbaye Saint-Michel

Presentation

Built in 972 by Benedictine monks, redesigned a number of times over history, the Abbey, with the St Michel church, forms a superb combination of bricks and ochre overlooking the river Tarn. Whilst the cloister has long since disappeared, the bells of the square tower still punctuate the Gaillac day.   Renovated in 1997, the Abbey buildings house the maison des vins, the tourist office and a museum whose vaulted cellars lead under the Abbey. The Abbey is classified as a Historic Monument.
