Bonlieu sur Roubion

Eglise de Bonlieu sur Roubion

Bonlieu Sur Roubion The village of Bonlieu grew up around its still active monastery, whose basilica is in the provencal romanesque style. An order of Norbertines, and more recently, Premonstratensians occupied the buildings, which, in the middle ages, were a Cistercian abbey for women, founded in 1171 on land given by the Comtesse of Marsanne. Thanks to the Roubion river, for many years the monastery worked a mill, an activity which ceased in the sixties. Walnut oil and flour were the main produce.
