While the explanations of the various places visited are simplified, visitors are invited to adopt certain attitudes and postures of the monastic community. Smell: in the garden of simple plants, visitors can discover different fragrances. Touch: in the abbey church, visitors can touch and weigh the different materials used to build the abbey. Hearing: in the abbey farm, visitors can listen to an extract of Gregorian chants.
