Abbaye de Villelongue - the bridge over the Vernassonne River by Beausoleil Star this if you like it!

The Cistercian abbey of Villelongue is located 20 km from the city of Carcassonne and 10 km from the Canal du Midi, two major sites in the department of Aude, classified as World Heritage by UNESCO. It is 6 km from Montolieu “Village of Books.” The current owner of the abbey cultivates many different types of squash and gourds in the abbey garden and there have been gourd festivals in the past. Many are painted or otherwise decorated and you find them in the abbey and throughout the gardens.
