Abbaye aux Dames

Interesting
The convent buildings of this abbey founded by Queen Matilda, and the sister abbey of the Abbaye aux Hommes, were rebuilt in the 18C. Today, they are embellished with a French-style garden. The cloisters and wide double-flighted staircase are particularly remarkable. The abbey has been restored by the Lower Normandy Regional Council. The Romanesque church of La Trinité is attractive in its simplicity.
