24 rue Guillaume Le Conquérant 76480 JUMIEGES / Vallée de Seine
Jumièges Abbey is a remarkable example of medieval religious architecture in Normandy.
An exceptional indication of the first major achievements of Romanesque Art in Normandy surrounded by centuries old trees : the facade, bare and striking is flanked by towers of 46 m high. The large porch with a loft is the remains of the pre-Romanesque traditions. Before the destructions of the late 18th and early 19th centuries, the monastery buildings were set around the cloister, of which only the outline remains while a few remnants of the monastery buildings can still be seen.
