  • This place is just beautiful! We started the tour, she is very detailed, probably too indeed architecture details are for connoisseurs, the details on the daily life of the Abbey, its very interesting. I don't advice not this tour for people with children.

  • Everyone knows that they, these ruins of the Abbey of our Lady of Jumièges. But when you go from the Belgium side Norman or further to Brittany, we never find the time to stop. And that's a mistake. The ruins are impressive and bear witness to a rich past, both historical and that spiritual and cultural. Despite the passage of the Vikings, the Benedictine monks of the high middle ages erected a superb Abbey in the middle of a vast field. The visited guided, managed by a young person passionate and an expert on architecture and history with twists of places, is really indispensable. And, it's free. The huge park allows you, the fine came to spend an afternoon with the family.

  • A great scenic location. Very good for photographers.
  • Surprising to see how large it was when it was complete and how much of it was taken down to be used as building materials. Easy parking. Well worth the visit.
  • This set of ruins is absolutely beautiful, the history of the place deserves to take a look at his wikipedia page to understand the magnitude. Not to be missed.

  • To visit absolutely! The price is reasonable (6.50 per adult, without time limit). We arrive in the morning, we picnic in the gardens. The Park is very large, there are plenty of details to see. With a smartphone or a Tablet, there is access to a detailed tour. There are many events (exhibitions, games, shows). Think to climb up to the Abbey Church, it still hosts an exhibition. In the evening, the lighting gives a special dimension to the monument.
