Abbey of Bec-Hellouin, Le Bec-Hellouin

4.4
#2 of 20 in Historic Sites in Eure
Abbey of Bec-Hellouin was once the most influential abbeys in the Anglo-Norman kingdom. When you visit, you’ll find yourself on the banks of a peaceful river, where you can explore some of the finest ecclesiastical architecture of the 17th and 18th century. On the tour, you will experience the cloister, the 15th century bell tower of Saint-Nicolas, the monastic quarters, the abbey church, and a display of crafts and artifacts made by the monks.

Like all abbeys, this site maintained annals of the house, but uniquely its first abbots also received individual biographies, brought together by the monk of Bec, Milo Crispin.

    Lovely old buildings in a village around since the middle ages. A tour would be recommended as the buildings can only be seen from the outside otherwise.  more »

    A moment full of history and discovery, both at the Abbey in its surroundings. The tour is interesting, the place allows a moment for personal reflection, whether you are a believer or not. The shop contains real small treasures.
