The Cloister of Cadouin Today is a place where a serenity inherited from its past monastic activity still reigns.

Founded in 1115, the abbey church, the sacristy, and the Romanesque base of the conventual buildings remained at that time. In 1119, the young Abbey of Cadouin became Cistercian in the filiation of the abbey of Pontigny, which was itself one of the four daughters of the city. Eleventh Abbey attached to the order, it will now follow the rule. The flamboyant Gothic cloister dates from the end of the fifteenth century. Cadouin's monastic activity was interrupted in 1790 during the revolution.
