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.

  • In one of the most beautiful villages of France, the Abbey is the place to visit during your stay in the village. The religious site owner are listening to visitors, the shop well supplied with including products of the soil. We could not do the guided tour, only the Park and the Tower of swinging but if we go back we will do it as the price is not high. At the time of the visit there were renovations but that don't interfere with the tour.
