Hambye Abbey – Benedictine Medieval Monastery

The Abbaye Notre-Dame de Hambye was founded in around 1145. Not all of the abbey remains intact, but this beautiful space in Hambye, Normandy, is an oasis of calm and tranquillity.

Gothic Cathedral in Coutances

A Gothic Roman Catholic cathedral constructed from 1210 to 1274 that incorporates the remains of an earlier Norman cathedral. Although much of Coutances was damaged during World War II, the building escaped relatively unscathed. Rising majestically above the town, it can be seen as far away as Jersey.

Entry is free and it is open every day from 9am until 7pm (6pm in winter). Further details can be found at http://cathedralecoutances.free.fr/

Normandy Tide of the Century

Great pictures from Sabina Lorkin of the ‘tide of the century’ (not sure why it’s called that as it happens every 18 years). I got up at silly o’clock this morning to watch the tide near to St Martin de Brehal in Normandy. What was a road quickly became completely covered by the sea enabling canoeists and surfers to enjoy the space.
