Heritage of Montivilliers

Abbaye de Montivilliers

Montivilliers owes its prosperity and celebrity to its prestigious women’s abbey, a unique establishment amongst the many men’s abbeys in Normandy.

Early, parcels and land next to the abbey were made over to private individuals who built their dwellings there. It’s gradually gave birth to a town known as Moustier-Villier in 1202.
