Abbey of Bec-Hellouin, Le Bec-Hellouin

4.4
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.

  • Beautiful Abbey (whose interior is accessible only by guided tours). A very interesting story page, in an unusual place. In addition you will find a small shop run by the monks, with some local products, a bookshop as well as parts of dishes made by the monks themselves. Without a course forced, if you do not pass away feel still free!
