Saint-Gabriel-Brécy - Prieuré Saint-Gabriel

Saint-Gabriel-Brécy - Prieuré Saint-Gabriel
The priory was established in 1058 by Benedictine monks of the powerful abbey in Fecamp (150 kms north east) with the of the local Baron of Creully.

Most of the conventual buildings and the largest part of the abbey church got demolished, when the priory got sold after the French Revolution. Seen here is the ruin of the former choir.

I did not intrude any further, as since 1929 here is a School of Horticulture. The website gives a nice overview.
