The loveliest ruins in france

Founded in the 7th century by Saint Philibert, Jumièges is one of the most famous abbeys in Normandy. Transformed into a stone quarry after the French Revolution, the remains are magisterial and offer an unforgettable vision, celebrated in the 19th century by Victor Hugo. Located on one of the meanders of the Seine, the best way to see it first is from the river, on a cruise or from the ferry, or else by driving on the pretty road, lined with fruit trees, or walking on one of the many footpaths. As you arrive in the village, the large Notre-Dame church appears in all its majesty, its two towers rising towards the sky. A fine example of Norman Romanesque architecture, its open-air nave makes it all the more impressive.

There is also the small church of Saint Peter and its rare Carolingian vestiges, a 15-hectare English-style park, and the abbot’s lodge, a 17th-century manor house, which was recently reopened and now houses part of the cut stone collection.

Two photographic exhibitions are hosted there in 2023, before the house closes for renovations.
