Flaran Abbey - Tourism in the Gers

Located at the confluence of the Baïse and Auloue rivers in the district of Valence-sur-Baïse, the former Cistercian abbey of Flaran, which was founded in 1151 by the monks of Escaladieu Abbey and then underwent alteration work until the 18th century, now houses Gers' departmental cultural centre.

A visit to this remarkable group of buildings, which is listed as a Historic Monument, provides a chance to discover the Romanesque church, the gothic cloister, the chapterhouse and its marble colums, the prior's apartment, the monks' refectory, the kitchen and the charming garden of aromatic and medicinal plants. You can learn more about the area at the two permanent exhibitions, one on the Way of St. James in Gers and the other on the history of the abbey.

A wide range of activities and cultural events are on offer all year round.
