  • We were Saturday, March 17, 18 at Jumièges, we were 66! We discovered thanks to a passionate guide and lover of Jumièges, the beauty of this exceptional place, its history, its life over the centuries. He explained to us how to imagine Jumièges otherwise than as a place in ruins... and it is true that it is beautiful and moving '... it was cold, and we dreamed... Thanks for a great time. We'll keep a magical memory!

  • It is a real throwback, at the time of the Merovingians, which invites this wonderful site and these majestic ruins. Planning a trip with a guided tour (free) always rich and more difficult in Normandy) under the Sun which will allow you to enjoy strolls in the Park after the visit.

  • Superb Abbey although it is in ruins. I advise you to download application 3d jumieges which explains the history of the Abbey and that shows what was the monument, before his downfall.

  • Must catch the good weather ! With sun it looks amazing :)
  • Stunning. An absolutely beautiful place and well with the €6 entrance fee. Incredible and highly recommended.
  • 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.
  • Terrific and intriguing place
