Anglais Abbaye aux dames à Caen (édition en anglais)

À propos

Aucun résumé n'est disponible


Built on a hill to the north-east of the city by Queen Matilda of Flanders, wife of William the Conqueror, the Abbaye aux Dames has a marvellous view of Caen harbour and the surrounding plain. The convent, set within 10 hectares of grounds, was completely rebuilt in the 18th century and is now a listed building, recognised as one of Normandy's finest examples of classical architecture. Its Romanesque church, near the entrance, remains intact, and was a focal point for 19th century architects and historians like Victor Ruprich-Robert, who were fascinated by their country's heritage.
Despite the occasional alteration, the church still retains its original appearance, harmonious yet unusual both in its elevation and its Oriental- style decoration.
