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.

Two tips: -At the far end of the site, there is another building where there are modern art exhibitions. -Right of the entrance is a giant chess and checkers board that you can use for free.

This Benedictine abbey, founded by St. Philipert in 654, survived Viking raids and became the center of Norman religious renaissance.There followed periods of great wars, reforms, rediscovery and destruction. The ruins are replete with history and romance.

Spent the morning here and came back after lunch with same ticket no problem. Very imposing ruins and excellent photo opportunities. Welcoming staff and good little gift shop. No refreshments on site. A very enjoyable visit.
