Masterpiece of Romanesque art. Built between the 11th and 13th centuries and famed for its capitals, the Abbey features outstanding examples of sculpture and architectural remains.
A landscape from another time. Set around a large meadow and majestic trees, the Abbey, open to the elements, stands in over 200 hectares of grounds enclosed by a surrounding wall.
In the heart of the Entre-deux-Mers region. Between Garonne and Dordogne, the Abbey takes its name from the Silva Major or "great forest".
To ensure the safety of our visitors, the monument is strictly applying the security measures decided by the french authorities.
The monument is fully opened.
