PCUNOR014FS000GQ

Description

The Juaye Mondaye Abbey, near Bayeux, is a fine classical 18th century construction located on the banks of the River Aure.

Founded in 1202, the abbey's most affluent period was in the 18th century, with the reconstruction of the monastery by Father Eustache Restout. One of the abbey's Premonstratensians, he was also a painter and architect, born from an influential Norman family. Over your visit, you can admire the monastic buildings (cloister, chapterhouse, refectory, cells) and the abbey church, as they were when just completed in 1745. Not to be missed!
- In the north transept of the abbey church, the Virigin’s chapel: a group of terracotta sculptures made in Noron-la-Poterie, by Melchior Verly.
- The Parisot organ: the abbey’s most precious jewel. Built in the 18th century and restored in 2004, it is played in the abbey-church every Sunday.
Guided tours every day from 1 July to 31 August at 2.30pm and every Sunday from 1 September to 30 June at 3.30pm.
