Silvacane Abbey is a former Cistercian monastery in the municipality of La Roque-d’Anthéron, Bouches-du-Rhône, in Provence, France. It was founded in or around 1144 as a daughter house of Morimond Abbey and was dissolved in 1443; it 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 Abbey and Le Thoronet Abbey; Silvacane was possibly the last-established.
