Many visitors like to come to pray in the abbey church whose motto is Ora et Labora (prayer and work). For decades, monks have been making and selling the ardi gasna (a cheese made from ewe's milk) following ancestral customs in this pastoral valley. They have since diversified to another activity: personalised rugs, i.e. decorated with a design chosen by the client. These rugs are true works of art, to lay on the floor or hang on the wall. Prices vary with size, selection of colours and intricacy of design. The orders, which have been completed but not yet dispatched, are exhibited in the church.
