The legacy of the Benedictines

Guillaume Fitz Osbern, right-hand man of William the Conqueror, founded the Abbey of Notre-Dame de Lyre in the XNUMXth century. This Benedictine monastery will shine on Normandy and England until the French Revolution. Today, the Vieille-Lyre has precious vestiges of this period. Go in search of the various traces of this heritage in the walls of Saint-Pierre church and on the buildings of the town. The essential stop on this visit is the Trou Normand, the famous inn inherited by Hippolyte Lemoine (alias Bourvil) in the film of the same name.
