Longues Abbey

PCUNOR014FS0006Q

Description

Founded in the 12th century, the Benedictine Abbey of St Mary in Longues, in the Bessin area, bears exceptional witness to medieval religious life in Normandy, but also offers a fine example of the region’s religious architecture and decorative art. The audacious restoration campaigns undertaken in the 20th and 21st centuries by the abbey’s successive owners have contributed to offering, today, one of Norman heritage’s flagships, and a listed Historic Monument since 2006. Around the abbey house, visitors can admire the vestiges of the abbey, which are surrounded by gardens. The abbey’s successive owners have preserved and valorised the site with passion, from the 1930s to the present day. The family that currently owns the site strives to promote and highlight Longues abbey, via an association, the members of which are inhabitants of the village. The abbey was selected in 2019 by the Bern mission - a lottery to serve heritage preservation - as one of Normandy’s ‘emblematic’ monuments. Thanks to this supplementary source of funding, the church choir will be adorned with a new roof by 2022 and will be open to the public!
