We walked through the Chateau grounds and followed the road signs to the Abbaye aux Dames and we were not disappointed.

This fantastic church is light airy and has some of the most beautiful stonework-the lack of information in the church did not prove troublesome.

The beauty of the church is worth the visit and comparisons can be made to some of the UK Cathedrals and so please do go there and then go to the Abbaye aux Hommes as the contrast is clear between the two. As both Abbayes were built to allow the reinstatement of William the Conqueror and Mathilde back into the Church it was amazing gift to the Church. Worth a visit, enjoy

Final resting place of Queen Matilda, William the Conquerors wife. Takes 5 minutes to go around. No interpretation etc. I only say I would recommend it because if you go to see Williams tomb, see Matilda's
