It is where the Risle and the Bec, two small Norman rivers, meet that the most important spiritual and intellectual centre of Western Christianity in the Middle-Ages developed. Despite the abbeys' loss of prestige after the Hundred Years' War and the Wars of Religion, a community lived there until the French Revolution, before the army settled there. Since 1948, Benedictine monks have taken back their property and have kept renovating it. During the visit, take a look at the portraits of the abbots, the tomb effigies and statues from the former sanctuary.
