The half-Renaissance, half-Gothic Palais Benedictine embodies the glory of Bénédictine, an herbal liqueur based on brandy. The flamboyant palace is marked by an iconic bell tower. Inside, more than 1,000 volumes transcribed by monks fill the library shelves in the Gothic room. The Renaissance room holds keys from the collection of Alexandre Le Grand that date back to the 14th century. The gallery conducts temporary exhibits of contemporary art, featuring artists like Warhol and Dali. You can book a guided or self-guided tour of the opulent facilities, and sign up for a liqueur tasting.

  • The opening hours listed on the website, on Google maps, AND on the sign outside are all different, and all wrong. Because of this we got there and couldn't see the museum. Otherwise, the building is very beautiful from the outside.
  • Very awesome place to check out. Explore where Bénédictine was berthed. End with sample tastings. Always a good thing. Non-alcoholic options IF that's your speed.
