Abbey of Bec-Hellouin, Le Bec-Hellouin

(4.3/5 based on 190 reviews on the web)
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.

  • This Abbey is that of happiness, attend a Sunday morning or evening Vespers has 17 hours even for a non religious person is source of rest, quiet. Listen to songs with the monks and the nuns of the convent (located not far from the Abbey) that happiness. L the wonderful architecture and to complete the walk you can enjoy a good pancake on the square in front of the exit of the Abbey or have lunch in one of the restaurants of the bec hellouin
