Down in the valley of the Sénancole, the Cistercian abbey of Sénanque is set amidst long rows of lavender. Thousands and thousands of photos are taken here, especially when the lavender, or better: the lavendin, is in bloom. It is one of the most typical images of Provence.
Notre-Dame de Sénanque, together with the abbey of Silvacane and the abbey of Thoronet, forms the three provençal sisters. The abbey was founded in 1148 and since a few years she is inhabited by monks again.
But let us first drive to the abbey itself.
