The remains of the church where the poet Ronsard is buried are surrounded by gardens that the 12th century canons described as "heaven on earth". The old monastery has preserved all its historic, spiritual and poetic dimensions. Today, it features a wide range of trails linking different periods and the arts from the perspective of architecture, poetry and contemporary art.
The electic events programme, activities bringing all the five senses into play and interactive cultural events are a chance for visitors to learn new things, enjoy some surprises and relax with family or friends.
Saint-Cosme Priory is a timeless place with ever-changing outlines.
