  • Absolutely stunning. A quiet escape during a busy day with a range of architecture and artistic expressions. Both Richard and Richard II are buried here for any fans of Vikings.

  • a huge construction, going back to Richard Lionheart, and for some time the most important abbey until Mont St.Michel was built.

  • Very beautiful and imposing abbey in the historic center of FÉCAMP. Beautiful on the outside (despite its sobriety/severity) and beautiful on the inside. Do not miss the tomb of the first dukes of Normandy. They rest here. Lots to discover/see inside
  • This cathedral impresses with its light-flooded lightness. She is in good condition and for me a highlight in Normandy. A visit is definitely worth it! In addition, here is the historical clock that even shows the level of the tide.
