Pearl of Roman Art, this magnificent abbey was founded in 1032 by Duke Robert the Magnificent. With its apse of 15 bays and 3 levels combining refinement and brightness, the Abbey is unique in Normandy. Another masterpiece is the 14th century Abbot's chapel, reminiscent of the Sainte Chapelle in Paris.
