Abbaye Aux Hommes - Review

Abbaye aux Hommes (Men's Abbey) is a Benedictine monastery in the city. It had been founded by William the Conqueror in 1063 and is one of the most renowned Romanesque buildings. The abbey had been built in Caen stone and that was constructed from 1066 onwards and took decades to form. There was a competition between Saint-Étienne and its sister building Sainte-Trinité. An important feature added to both the churches was the ribbed vault that had been used for first time in France.
