  • Allow about 2 hours to visit the Abbey and adjoining Church Sainte-Honorine. You will discover pieces of religious art, and "the houses of the world", many models made by the Annuitant Gosselin. The best is that he has never traveled or almost, and that these houses of all scales are completely realistic. Some still exist in cities, details that our guide, Francis has been able to tell us with relish and enthusiasm. All of the Abbey and the Church is perched on a cliff overlooking the harbour. Honorine? Yes, relics were filed then in Conflans, Conflans Sainte-Honorine, homeland of boatmen. The Church, when she is forced part of a mass every year, it houses collections of paintings, we see the bells close, the stones are beautiful, the restored staircase is exceptional. Parking is easy, and do not hesitate before leaving to go around three times (attention, before there is a secret to ask the Guide) of the Virgin, 6 meters high, dating from 1875. History says that sometimes found in this place of the crutches or even a wheelchair, thrown because the user has found the market... So Museum-Abbey, Church, Garden of the Virgin, with magnificent view of Le Havre, the place is a very interesting stop.

  • If you go to the Harbour made the detour to this Abbey. The oldest site of le Havre. Well-preserved, long in the works it offers a nice little Museum. The capitals of the Church are beautiful.

  • We went to visit the Abbey following positive comments from tripadvisor and we were terribly disappointed. Admission is 5 euros per person to not see that model ships of le Havre, models of houses of the time by an unknown artist, a film on the audiovisual sector and even within the Church, contemporary paintings and statues in wood coming to ruin the site architecture. Where are the texts of stories of the place? It is not enough to place some chalices and other jewelry in a small room.
