I hadn't read very much about Abbaye de Jumieges before deciding to stop here on a day trip from Rouen. It was a suggested highlight in a couple of guidebooks, but nothing said it was a must-see. I'm glad my friend and I made the...More

Reputed to be the most beautiful ruins in France and they could well be right. Mostly built of a white stone set in a grass parkland, they are both substantial and atmospheric. The two towers are particularly impressive. Worth an hour if anyone’s time.

Got the guidebook to the Abbey and walked to the 12 stops. Visiting one of the oldest Abbeys in the region is amazing to see. The fact that it is still standing is amazing. After a walking tour of downtown Rouen, got a ride out...More

A great pity this fell at the time of the revolution. Had it been saved at this time it would prove much more informative and interesting.

We had a wonderful tour of the ruins of the Abbaye de Jumieges.... then as if seeing the beautiful area was not enough there was an art exhibit going on in one of the buildings nearby....

A payable site but worth the entry. Stunning white stone and awesome vestiges of the buildings. Everyone very welcoming and chairs dotted around to rest and contemplate the surroundings. The scale of the whole place and the ruins are impressive.

A great ruined abbey in Jumieges. The walls give an idea of the magnificence of the buildings. Beautiful grounds.
