Cloister of Saint-Wandrille-Rançon

Interesting
This cloister has kept four of its galleries. The South Gallery, the only visible one dating back to the 14C, is situated along the church nave. It was connected to the latter by a pretty door whose damaged tympanum shows the Coronation of the Virgin. A canopy holds the venerated statue of Notre-Dame of Fontenelle (14C). Its gracious features can be observed now that it has been restored. Do not miss the tombstone of Jean, bailiff of Fontenelle in the 13C and of abbot Jean of Brametot.
