City of Abbesses

 The Abbey gave its name to the town which quickly grew around it and took over the buildings from the Revolution and the departure of the last nuns, thus saving it from destruction. Montivilliers is one of the oldest abbeys in Normandy, founded in the 7th century by Saint Philibert, founder of the abbey of Jumièges. Abbey of women, it will remain so until the end of the 18th century, with the exception of a short period, at the beginning of the 11th century, when a community of monks from Fécamp settled there. The abbey church, now a parish church, is an interesting Romanesque building, modified in the 15th century by the addition of a second nave and a Flamboyant Gothic style porch.
