Description

The Ladies' Abbey in Caen, is a Benedictine abbey founded by William the Conqueror's wife Matilda. William, in turn, founded the Men's Abbey.

Founded circa 1060, the Ladies' Abbey was extremely prosperous from the 11th century to the French Revolution. The 18th century monastic buildings are now home to the headquarters of the Lower Normandy Regional Council. Queen Matilda, the abbey's founder, is laid to rest in the abbey-church of the Holy Trinity.

Nearby, the Michel d'Ornano park offers you a splendid viewpoint to admire the town of Caen and a pleasant addition to your tour of the abbey.
