Details

The Cistercian Abbey of Boschaud bears its name from the topographical configuration of the site: Bosco Cavo which is Latin translates as “hollow wood” or “wooded dell”. Founded in the 12th century, partly destroyed during the Wars of Religion, the Abbey combines great Cistercian principles in a style typical of the Périgord region, the only nave of the church being covered by cupolas on pendentives. Rediscovered in the 19th century, the remains of the convent buildings are filled with spirituality.
