On the road to Normandy from Paris you can make a small detour to visit the Abbey of Jumièges.
The Abbey of Jumiéges was founded in 654 by Saint Philibert, its golden age was at the time of the Duchy of Normandy. Then it turned down and was sold after the Revolution to be transformed into a stone quarry. It was saved from complete destruction in 1852 by Lepel-Cointet family. Today there are nothing more than ruins and paradoxically it is what makes the charm of this Abbey. The ruins are majestic and encourage contemplation and meditation. Take time to visit the Abbey and do not hesitate to sit on a bench.
If you are less sensitive to the charm of the place, the Park and the Abbey are not very large and can be visited in a half hour. Admission is charged, the fee is 6.5 euros.
