Old Abbey of St-Georges-de-Boscherville

Recommended
The abbey church, built over the period from 1113 to 1140, except the vaults in the nave and transept, which date from the 13C, is striking in the unity of its style and the harmony of its proportions. The façade is very simple. The estate makes for an interesting visit: it includes the chapter house, convent building and the Chapelle des Chambellans. From the Pavillon des Vents, above a black flint and white stone staircase, a panoramic view reaches over the Seine valley and the abbey.
