Then we saw the ruins of the old Abbey Church and the new church which is open permanently. The shop as it opens at 14:30. She is busy, there is a large part of MONASTIC products, in addition to beer and wax (which is no longer manufactured on-site!)
Nous avons eu la chance de faire une visite guidée très instructive et qui permet de voir des espaces inaccessibles en visite libre. C'est une visite complémentaire de l'abbaye de Jumièges que l'on pe... more »We had the chance to do a very informative tour and which allows to see inaccessible spaces free visit. It's a follow-up visit of the Abbey of Jumièges, that can be done in the same day. Very rich store of books.

La bou... more »The ruins of the Church are free as the monastery is still in business, better ask a tour, because this allows to see a part of the Interior which is royal.

Pilou123Quiet place for contemplation. I have done several retirement. Very interesting Abbey from the historical point of view. Are tours with a guide brother. Place to see once.
Matthieu PaquierFor the record Marc beer Mount of the Cats is brewed at the Abbey of Scourmont (Chimay), so in Belgium... It is marked on the label. The monk was so right!
Marc allemanThis February 19 a monk said on TV that his Abbey is the only BREW beer in France however the Abbey of Mount of the Cats near Bailleul in the North has brewed in around 1865. then after a stop resumed its production of Trappist beer!
Romain BornertIdeal place to retreat from the world time...
