The Abbaye de Jumieges is packed with historical significance. The multilingual signage is clear, succinct, and informative. Due to the unfortunate period when the site was ravaged by use as a stone quarry, only one third of the original abbey exists today. Nevertheless, we still...More

This very large Abbey built in 654 with limestone, housed over 700 monks and 1500 lay brothers. It was destroyed by the Viking raiders between 841 and 940. It appears that the restoration will take many years.
