Discover The Caen Abbeys France

The Abbaye aux Dames (Ladies' Abbey) and the Abbaye aux Hommes (Men's Abbey) in Caen are two cult places facing one another which should not be missed.
The first building was built around 1060 on the command of Duchess Matilda, William the Conqueror's wife, and today it houses the Regional Council of Lower Normandy.
The men's abbey, founded by William in 1060, includes Saint-Etienne's Church and conventual buildings which are now the Town Hall.
