In the Andelle valley, enjoy the tranquillity of one of the most beautiful Cistercian abbeys in Normandy
Nestled by a miraculous stream "the healing fountain" in an unspoilt natural setting, there used to be an abbey for nuns dedicated to prayer and meditation. Founded in 1190, it was attached to the Cistercian Order of Citeaux in 1207 and completed in 1253. Despite damages caused by the French Revolution in 1789, the remaining monastic buildings are considered as a masterpiece of Anglo-Normand Gothic architecture from the early 13th century that reflects the Cistercian strictness in its purity of form. The visit will take you through the troglodytic cellars, the church and its vaulted choir, the nuns' building with the Chapter House, the workroom, the dormitory with its beautiful framework, and the monastic gardens dotted with sculptures of the women who have lived in this tranquil and serene place. You will be carried away by this enchanting place!
