Lovely ruins that accentuate the vastness and magnitude of the Abbey from its original condition, with much more light, wind, and birds flying through. The Abbey feels like mystical and romantic ruins that are waiting to be discovered. Really enjoyed my visit, and it was a great break from other attractions.
A place sure worth visiting. We were intrigued by the history of the ruins and nature. The information leaflet we received upon entry was helpful to grasp the richness and magnitude of the abbey. The house at the far end did not meet our expectations, but we were happy to have walked down there anyway. For parents: better to use a baby carrier than a stroller to make sure you can get around the entire terrain.
Amazing ruins of ancient church. It's very interesting walking around and discover beautiful point of view. There are many chairs to rest, I went here in january so the weather was very cloudy, but in the spring could be better. I suggest to visit during the week, when there are bit people. This Abbaye is a magic place, where closing you eyes and imagine the ancient atmosphere. The ancient trees enrich the scenery.
At the time of our visit there was some art installation going on that was kind of strange, but the abbey itself is a fun place. Very gothic with it's abandoned, crumbling walls.
Jumièges is a small village in the Seine-Maritime department in the Normandy region in France. It has 1,740 inhabitants. There is the Abbey of Jumièges, a masterpiece of Romanesque architecture, founded in 654 by San Filiberto and later remodeled.
