The story of this 11th-century character, the half-brother of the famous William "the Conqueror", is full of surprising mysteries and legends.

The next stop will be in front of the famous white abbey. If you want, you can step inside this medieval monument to admire its cloister and the amazing works of sacred art housed in the chapter house and the abbey church. Look out for the beautiful choir stall carved in wood which dates between the seventeenth and nineteenth centuries!
