The Abbey has been a source of inspiration for many modern and contemporary artworks. Van Gogh (1853-1890) was one of the artists fascinated by Montmajour and Alain Krill's  'Ascension' in the abbey choir is a homage to his use of thick layers of colour.

Finally, climbing to the top of the Pons de l'Orme Tower affords an impressive panoramic view of Arles, Tarascon, the plain of La Crau, and the Alpilles Mountains.
