In the heart of the Siene valley, l'abbaye d'Hambye is, after the Mont-Saint-Michel (only 45mins away), the most complete medieval monastery in Normandy. This Benedictine Abbey was built during the 12th and 13th Centuries. The community disappeared in the 18th Century and the church was sold and partially demolished.

The majestic ruins dominate the ensemble. The monastic buildings that have been preserved, and patiently restored, include the scriptorium, the 13th Century chapter house, the sacristy, and the parlor (with 13th Century frescos). The monastery still has its gatehouse, kitchen and a group of agricultural buildings.
