Welcome to Saint-Martin-du-Canigou

Perched upon a rocky pinnacle in the heart of the massif of Mt. Canigou, the Romanesque Abbey of Saint-Martin is unveiled before the hiker's eyes after a climb that leaves the cares of the world behind in the valley. Just below the Heavens, enshrined in the green pines, this jewel of early Romanesque architecture hides a treasure evermore precious for men and women, young or just young-at-heart, anyone seeking a place to replenish the spirit: there lies the Presence of Jesus Christ, sung and praised for the last thousand years...

We trust that you will enjoy finding out about the Abbey through the pages of this website, and we look forward to welcoming you.

May The Lord bless you !
