Understanding the abbey of La Sauve-Majeure

• The origin of its name. The abbey lies between the Garonne and the Dordogne, in the Entre-deux-Mers region, where there was once the Silva Major or great forest.

• A site that was rescued from the brink.
The Revolution put paid to its monastic function, and after the Great War it all but disappeared before the grandiose ruins were listed as historic monuments in 1840 and acquired by the State in 1960.
