St Nicolas Cemetery

Interesting
The church was built at the end of the 11C by the monks of the Abbaye aux Hommes. Although it is deconsecrated, it has never been renovated nor used for any other purpose. Its Romanesque vestibule with three arches is quite exceptional in Normandy. The old cemetery surrounding the church, with its moss-covered tombs, provides a romantic setting which puts into relief the magnificent apse topped with a high stone roof.
