History

Lagrasse dates from the time the abbey was built. Permission for the construction was given by Charlemagne in 783.

The two highlights of the village are the eponymous Abbey and the bridges, although the narrow medieval streets of the village itself are also very attractive, and remains of the town walls can still be seen.
