Visiting here is a pleasant detour stop when passing through this area on the way to, or back from, Honfleur and the coastal cities & attractions. The ruins are quite spectacular and large giving way to pleasant green belts for walking and enjoying. Seems that many stones were removed for other structures after the Abbye fell into disuse. Enjoyable. ...

The ruins are in very good condition. Unfortunately, the stones were used after the Revolution for buildings elsewhere. It's worth a short detour between Giverny and Rouen to spend 45 minutes here.

I wouldn’t say it is actually worthy to travel specifically here or take a detour to see the Abbey, but if you happen to be in the area and are interested in history this might be a good thing to visit. The Abbey is actually the ruins and remaining of what used to be the Abbey, but these are impressive.... More

They've been described as the 'most beautiful ruins in France'. The west wall of this Benedictine Abbey, with its twin towers, is memorable. There are useful information panels. As a bonus, there are frequent art exhibitions in the former Abbot's House (When we visited, there was an excellent display of Cartier Bresson photos.)

Wonderful, breath taking abbey - truly astonishing in its scale and ambition. Take your time to see this place, dating from 654 AD.

We spent the weekend in Honfleur with our next destination being lower Normandy. I saw in Rick Steves' guidebook that this was worth a short detour if you had your own car so we made the trip. It was well worth it. Most of the way was by freeway. Once off the freeway you go through some beautiful countryside with... More

Considered one of the most ancient and important monasteries in the western world! You can just imagine its grandure in its time.

Well worth the entrance fee of €6.50, children free, the beautiful grounds and sheer stature of this site are so impressive and it is a stunning place to explore, photograph and wonder at the history.
