Saint-Germer-de-Fly

And its abbey church

Straddling the border between Normandy and Picardy, this former Benedictine abbey was founded in 661. The 12th-century abbey church, built entirely of calcareous clay from the Pays de Bray, wonderfully illustrates the transition from the Romanesque to the Gothic style. A replica of the Sainte-Chapelle of Paris constructed by Saint Louis and a perfect example of the High Gothic style, the Sainte-Chapelle de Saint-Germer-de-Fly is situated in an extension of the abbey church.
