L'abbaye aux hommes

Today, you can visit the conventual buildings, the scriptorium, the press, the dining hall, which during almost 1000 years, sheltered the Benedictines monks.

Since the 11th century, the abbey church of St Etienne stood up near the convent.
This jewel of the Romanesque and Gothic art can be admired with the stained glasses, the vertiginous vaults, and the recumbent effigy of Guillaume The Conqueror who rests here since 1087.
Every day, guided tours are organized.
For more information, contact the Tourist Office of Caen.
