La promenade de l’abbaye
1,000 years of history in 1 hour visit. The abbey promenade tells the story of daily life in Montivilliers in sixteen places in the shadow of its mighty Benedictine abbey. Near the emblematic monuments of the city, including the convent buildings, the visit circuit allows you to discover an urban heritage preserved over several eras: the remains of the city wall of the 14th century, a 16th century fountain, in the rue Cardot houses half-timbered and beautiful brick houses from the 19th century… as many witnesses to the glorious past of the so-called “city of the abbesses”.
At each stage an explanatory panel presents the history of the site illustrated by a comic strip in the manner of medieval illuminations.
