In 2014, 900 years of history await you at St George de Boscherville Abbey
Amongst the great Norman abbeys, St George de Boscherville constitutes one of the most beautiful examples of 12th century Romanesque Anglo-Norman architecture remaining today.
900 years after the beginning of its construction, in 1114, the Abbey church still dominates the surroundings with its majestic medieval lantern tower and its harmonious elegant façade.
Its magnificent garden, created by Benedictines of the Congregation of St Maur, passionately looked after by a group of enthusiasts, is an open invitation to take a stroll, much to the delight of its many visitors.
In 2014, on the occasion of the 900 years of St George Abbey, ATAR (the Tourist Association of Romanesque Abbey), the village and the parish invite you to discover or rediscover the History of Normandy and the important role played by the monks in the development of our region, in the Middle Ages.
From April until October 2014, a programme of concerts and exhibitions will be offered in the church or the restored gardens of the Abbey.
In June, top month of the entertaining season, other events such as a series of conferences, special lighting effects and a medieval festival will be included to celebrate this 900th anniversary, not to be missed!
Since the Abbey church became the Parish Church after the French Revolution, vespers will be sung by Benedictine Monks of the nearby St Wandrille Abbey, specialists of Gregorian chant.
