  • An extremely beautiful and special building to architecture but also in history; a mixture of Gothic and renaissance art. After a round by the Palace museum you go in the brewer's share of Benedictine. There's a video to see but also the marketing of the past jaaaaren but also the boilers and vessels of the monk drink. On the end is a tasting, included in the price.

  • Very nice architecture. A bit corny, but worth a visit. There is a very nice winter garden where you can sit and enjoy the liquor.
  • An amazingly beautiful museum/palace with a history of a liquor founded so long ago. Our visit was very special and a big thanks to Yolande and Sébastion for hosting us. If you visit Fécamp it is a must visit place and when you taste the Bénédictine you will certainly need to take some home as a souvenir 47 RM Cdo party
  • Beautiful place to visit and the surrounding area
  • Beautiful but a bit boring
  • Interesting tour. Reduced price for students, which is rare... First part of the self-guided tour. A lot of things to see. Then guided tour for we explain the manufacturing of the benedictine. Very interesting and friendly make and see. Small bowl: lack of explanations on the making of this liqueur
