Travel Tips for Caen


by darkjedi

Founded by Matilda around 1060 and magnificently restored today, the Ladies’ Abbey includes both the abbey church dedicated to the Trinity and monastery buildings.

The abbey church of Saint Trinity is a masterpiece of Norman Romanesque architecture whose understated décor leaves an impression. Blending simplicity and light, this church contains the tomb of Queen Matilda as well as a superb crypt.

The 18th century monastery buildings were occupied by Benedictine nuns until the Revolution. Turned into a hospital and then a hospice, they are now home to the Lower Normandy Regional Council offices.

Free tours daily at 2.30 p.m and 4.00 p.m
Closed : 1st January, 1st May, 11th November and 25th December.

Inside the castle of Caen

by Pavlik_NL

The terrain of the old castle of the Normandian dukes holds many surprises to the visitor. Besides the museums that I will mention later, there are small gardens (former vegetables and herbes gardens), a playground for children, the castle chapel, remains of the donjon where the dukes lived and several other buildings with a variety of functions. At the ticketoffice in the building at the gate, one can obtain tickets for guided tours around the whole castle interior, during which many details of the building and the history is explained.

A Caened Taste of Western France

by Roadquill

"A cool place to visit with lots of history."

It did seem odd though. I didn't see a lot of tourists. I am sure there were some around, but if they were there they were traveling incognito. I wouldn't call it a pretty town. Most of the place was bombed to rubble during WW II. A few places stand out, William the Conquerer's Castle, the church St. Pierre de Caen. We did miss the two monestaries, and the art museum.
