Moissac Abbey

Moissac Abbey

This is the cloister of Moissac Abbey, one of the highlights of our region. The Corinthian columns of the peristyle date back to the 11th century and each have a different design carved in the stone, depicting a story from the bible. It took us over an hour to go all the way around the courtyard as we studied each column's scene.
