THE PRIORY

From the Xth to the XVIIIteen century the monks created and developed on the land of Saint Martin a wine-making priory. They built a chapel in pure XIIth century style , which is now the family sepulcher, as well as an underground cellar (XIIth century) with stone-carved tanks with walls as thick as 1 to 1.20 meters, to which they added in the XVIeen century Hungarian oak vats.

The cellar was reshaped to its actual dimension in the XVIeen and XVIIeen centuries.

This cellar is remarkable by its basket handle shaped vault , its double openings and by the size of the stone, positioned much like a roman construction.
