Trinity Abbey (Abbey de la Trinite), Fecamp

(4.6/5 based on 95 reviews on the web)
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.

  • Monumental Abbey Church, in the center of Fécamp. Mix between Romanesque and Gothic architecture. Very high ship, with many aisles. At the time, must have been a very impressive Abbey, now only the Abbey Church as relict from days gone by. Nevertheless a must for the liefhebbens of cathedrals.

  • When I'm in the nave there is seized by the size of the Abbey is suspected from the outside. The Abbey is large, wide and high and feels small. The chapels on the sides add an additional historical interest. In short not to be missed.
