#1 of 10 in Things to do in Fecamp
The half-Renaissance, half-Gothic Palais Benedictine embodies the glory of Bénédictine, an herbal liqueur based on brandy. The flamboyant palace is marked by an iconic bell tower. Inside, more than 1,000 volumes transcribed by monks fill the library shelves in the Gothic room. The Renaissance room holds keys from the collection of Alexandre Le Grand that date back to the 14th century. The gallery conducts temporary exhibits of contemporary art, featuring artists like Warhol and Dali. You can book a guided or self-guided tour of the opulent facilities, and sign up for a liqueur tasting.

  • We visited the Benedictine Palace Saturday, March 17, 18. Beautiful discovery. Reception friendly and smiling. Our guide Marie-Hélène was very nice, she made us discover the history of this unusual place with lots of anecdotes which enriches the visit. Thank you. We were 66 (in 2 groups). Everyone enjoyed!

  • Great place! Going during the spring when I went, maybe all year long, you can smell the different grains and spices they use to make the liquor. The sent smells so surprisingly similar to the taste. The tour is great; the building is beautiful inside and out; and the experience is unforgettable. Highly recommend it if you are touring Normandy.
  • Fascinating place to visit with interesting rooms and history. They have a great souvenir shop and a nice garden too.
  • Good translations for non French speakers and a interesting history
  • Beautifully preserved monastery with excellent exhibition of historic liquor manufacturing.
  • Really nice visit and liquor tasting. The inside café is in an amazing closed terrace. The palace and the abbey are really gorgeous. A need to see in Fecamp!!
