  • Guided by a young woman with an accent very pronounced so hard to understand. In addition, no historical and religious explanations for the site. A kindergarten student would have done better. In conclusion, we have strictly nothing learned from the Abbey of Saint Wandrille. If you did see, run away.

  • The Abbey and the village in full are a very nice break during a walk in the Valley of the Seine. The buildings are beautiful, and all invites to rest and quiet. Remember a passage by the shop of the Abbey which has a nice selection of monastic products, including an excellent beer brewed by the monks on the spot!

  • The Abbey of St. Wandrille is a site that invites to meditation by its calm and its environment. Free visit of the ruins and the garden with the Chapel and the cemetery. Possibility of a guided tour (forecourt, courtyard and cloister) If you like Gregorian chants, attend Vespers at 5:30, it's beautiful. And to finish this tour, a shop you waiting for a few meters away where you can find local products, religious objects, books... and the beer of Saint Wandrille. Don't miss the St. Michael's Church in front of the Abbey.

  • Beautiful. Peaceful. All masses are in Latin.
  • Nice place rich of stories too bad we do not visit much including the refectory that would set off the biggest of Normandy and completely renovated! Very interesting guide

  • Ideal place for rest or physical and spiritual healing. Steeped in history, feel free to go visit this place, and ask a brother to guide you. Then go attend an office in Gregorian, appreciate the beauty of the songs I says it's a Benedictine Abbey. To see and listen to.

  • Only for those to recommend who have sincere interest in the life of the monks. Otherwise culturally and historically not very significant.
