"Abbaye de Jumièges" Jumièges by Airpunk

Jumièges Travel Guide: 12 reviews and 70 photos

One of the Normandy's most outstanding ruins

Jumièges is know for the ruins of a convent which exsited until the times of the french revolution. These ruins are among the most outstanding in the Normandy, and the most well-known together with the castle of Robert Le Diable and the Abbaye de Mortemer. I visited Mortemer on my 1999 Normandy tour, together with a friend. On this day, we travelled from Lillebonne to Rouen - Jumièges was the last station of the day. After having spent a lot of time in the ruins, we decided to skip (or just drive through) St. Martin de Boscherville and drive directly to Rouen. we just made it on time and arrived at our camping ground just a few minutes before the closure of the reception....

For more information about the Abbaye de Jumièges, please see my "things to do - Tip" about the Abbaye.
