    Excavations of the abbey

    Next to the church and the museum there is the excavation site. It's open and you can walk around freely. The Hôtel de Bourgogne stands on the site and again this gives a good impression of the size the old abbey had.

    Horses

    In Cluny there is a large place for the raising and training of horses, the Haras National.In March 2006 we didn't see any horses, only heard them in their stables. The roads were slippery so I imagine the thoroughbreds had to stay inside so that they don't get hurt. When we were there in August 2004, we often saw them and you could go and watch the training.
    There is a traffic sign, saying "Attention:Horses Crossing".

    the abbey

    Just walking around in Cluny you get an idea of how huge the abbey once was. The church and some towers are still standing. There is a museum which has a model of what it had looked like in the middle ages.

    Look at the National Stud (Haras)

    by hquittner Written Nov 15, 2008

    The area of the stud overlaps the monastery grounds and part of it was built of stone quarried from the destroyed church. Guided tours occur during the February-June period but we did not enter.

    Beautiful buildings. They have organized tours during the afternoons.
    The ticket office is only open as from a few minutes before the tours.
    Unfortunately it is only in French.

    Take a few minutes to visit this beautiful old cathedral.
    The crucifixion is a focus point as you walk into this old building.
