Abbaye de Montmajour: An extraordinary structure looming over the marshlands 6 km (4 mi) north of Arles, this magnificent Romanesque abbey stands in partial ruin. Begun in the 12th century by a handful of Benedictine monks, it grew according to an ambitious plan of church, crypt, and cloister; under corrupt lay monks in the 17th century, it grew more sumptuous; when those lay monks were ejected by the church, they sacked the place. When, after the Revolution, it was sold to a junkman, he tried to pay the mortgage by stripping off and selling its goods. A 19th-century medieval revival spurred its partial restoration, but its 17th-century portions remain in ruins. Ironically,
because of this vexed history, what remains is a spare and beautiful piece of Romanesque architecture.
