Montivilliers Abbey


At the centre-point of the town, the MONTIVILLIERS ABBEY, which underwent top-to-bottom restoration in 2000, a listed historical monument, proposes an original tour-spectacle that will enthral young and old alike. You will be able to wander through the cloister, the capitulary (ecclesiastical chapters) room, the dormitories, and the famous refectory, guided by the latest audiovisual techniques, to discover the life of the nuns, set to the rhythm of prayer, reading and work.

 At the end of your tour, you will be able to contemplate models and an audiovisual projection in the 16th Century dormitory, to discover the beauty of Normandy's abbeys.

 Also take the time to enjoy the ABBEY walking tour, a self-guided pedestrian circuit with commentary in your own language (adult or child's version) to discover the old town of Montivilliers and its history.
