Abbaye Notre-Dame-des-Neiges

Notre-Dame-des-Neiges (Our Lady of the Snows) is a Trappist monastery in the Ardèche département of south-central France. It was built in 1850, located on the territory of the commune of Saint-Laurent-les-Bains, about one and a half miles east of the village of La Bastide-Puylaurent (Lozère). It burned down in 1912 and was rebuilt on a different site nearby.

Robert Louis Stevenson visited in 1878 while on a hiking trip he described in Travels with a Donkey in the Cévennes.
