    The Abbey of Fécamp is very beautiful, both sober and majestic, very bright. Unfortunately, a problem when the restoration of the roof resulted in infiltration of water then cracks that make part of the impassable Abbey. We can still go around and the signs (in french only) allow to learn about its history.
