  • The Abbey of Jumièges is a church ruin, which was founded in 654 by the Saint Philibert. Like many religious monuments, the Abbey over the course of time has been converted several times. In the 19th Century, it was known as "most beautiful ruin of France". in 1946 the State acquires the plant, the protection work over recent years allow the tour again. The history of the Abbey unnd the exact description of the whole system you can read in a German-language brochure. The entrance was rebuilt at the end of the 19.Jh in the neo-Gothic style and is home to the exhibition and office space. A tourist attraction which is not crowded.

  • 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.
