Built in the 12th century and renovated in the 15th, Cloitre de Cadouin represents a Gothic architectural gem. For centuries, monks here devoted their lives to prayer and hosted the shroud of Cadouin, long believed to have been the cloth placed on Jesus' face after his crucifixion. In the past, pilgrims visited and venerated this cloth, believed to possess healing properties. Today, you can tour the cloister and visit a reproduction of the shroud.

  • A bit overpriced for the, albeit nice, cloister garden.
  • This was an interesting place to visit, had a walk around the cloisters of this fabulous building. The village has several places to take refreshments. We'll worth a visit.
