Day 21, Normandy Advent Calendar. Lucerne Abbey, near Granville in Normandy, is a Premonstratensian monastery founded in 1143.During the French Revolution it was reclaimed by the State with the buildings being used as a cotton mill and also as a source of stone. It is set in a valley with extensive grounds. Restoration started in 1959. The church, lavatories, gatehouse, dovecote, abbot's lodgings and much more are well worth a visit.
