Grounded in ambulation, our walking tours invite you to delve into a reflective and introspective experience, a similar practice to the processions in the monasteries. Guests will wander throughout the monastery, stopping to observe carefully selected architectural elements and artifacts bequeathed by the Augustinian Sisters. A rich and original experience that will allow you to explore the premises from a different perspective.

These are the different walking tours available to you. You can explore them in person by purchasing a day pass here or a museum pass directly at Le Monastère. Upon your arrival, go to the front desk to get the brochure(s) outlining the walking tours you wish to explore.
