Built between the 12th and 13th centuries, the majestic and romantic ruins of the La Sauve Majeure Benedictine Abbey overlook the small village of La Sauve Majeure. The main architectural features can still be seen in the building's ruins, providing an excellent lesson on Romanesque and Gothic architecture.

The Romanesque sculpture, particularly noteworthy in the apse, has survived centuries intact and illustrates the formal and semantic wealth of the sculpture produced during this period. The statuary museum complements the visit and contains remains found and preserved on site.
