Trinity Abbey (Abbey de la Trinite) is best known as the first producer of Bénédictine, an herbal liqueur. Founded in the 11th century by the Duke of Normandy, the abbey was built using the distinct cream-colored stone of Caen. In the scriptorium, see the illuminated manuscripts the monks produced under the Plantagenet. Two Norman rulers from the 11th century were originally buried outside and later interred in the Gothic abbey church. You can still view their burial plots in the northern chapel.

  • The Trinity Abbey is a benedictine Abbey built in the castle of the Dukes of Normandy, which can be seen the remains in front of the façade, which includes the entrance to the Church, of classical style, which contrasts with the rest of the building (it is here that Guillaume the Conqueror was recognized as Duke of Normandy). The Abbey Church is Gothic with some Romanesque chapels primitive and flamboyant Gothic style. The inside (in the process of restoration, is splendid. The choir has an ambulatory serving several radiating chapels, some of which are Romanesque. We discover several remarkable recumbent, as well as the tomb of the famous William of Volpiano and those of Richard Ier and Richard II of Normandy... You can see the tabernacle of the precious blood (which made this site a place of pilgrimage Norman). One of the masterpieces, is the dormition of the Virgin.
