Abbaye Aux Hommes, Caen Reviews

  • Beautiful church next to a lovely landscaped garden. Great place to take a few photos.

  • Definitely worth visiting. The tomb of William the Conqueror is here. The history of this building is also very interesting. during the WW2 bombings much of the city's population took refuge here and this building was damaged a few times but reconstructed.

  • Very beautiful church and abbey grounds. Built by William the Conquerer so a strong connection to England

  • Very interesting. Worth doing a guided tour!

  • The monastery is impressive
