The Escaladieu Abbey
The Escaladieu abbey is located in a wooded valley of the Baronnies halfway between the two thermal towns, Capvern and Bagnères-de-Bigorre.Its architecture, in all simplicity and sobriety is an invitation to serenity and travel.
The Escaladieu Abbey was founded around 1140 by two monks you were from the Abbey of Morimond and who wanted to settle in the Baronnies Valley because of the hospitality of the place.
The Abbey, after being sold as a national property during the French Revolution, was declared a Historical Monument in 1938.
The abbey, which became the property of the Departmental Council of the Hautes-Pyrénées in 1997, ensures a long-term restoration program highlighting the beauty and uniqueness of the building while integrating a strong cultural dynamic through thematic exhibitions.
