The monastery of Segries is situated in the heart of the "Parc Régional du Verdon", in Moustiers-Ste-Marie, which is classified as one of the most beautiful villages of France. Cobbled path-ways, shady squares, little bridges and waterfalls make this village, which is built right up against the mountainside, particularly picturesque. Founded in the fifth century, Moustiers-Ste-Marie is also celebrated for its famous ceramics.
