Cluny Sunshine in Spain

This tour highlights the influence of the Abbey of Cluny in the north of the Iberian peninsula.

The tour takes in impressive Cluniac sites in the south of France: the priory at Carennac (Batch); the church at Mouchan (Gers); the priory at Moirax (Lot-et-Garonne) with evening visits to Bayonne and Agen.

In Spain, you will visit the Cluniac sites of Frómista, Villalcazar de Sirga, Carrión de los Condes and Sahagún. These Cluniac sites were important in extending the influence of the Abbey of Cluny beyond the Pyrenees and were instrumental in the development of the Santiago de Compostella pilgrim route.
