The Palais Benedictine in Fecamp is a place that needs to be seen. Actually, Benedictine is produced In the distillery ans cellars of this Palais, which Aldo houses the arts of collections of Alexander le grand, who discovered the régime ans created the palace.

The distillery looks more like a church or palace than a distillery. The external and internal architectural features are worth seeing. We tourned the museum, then the distillery and had a sample tasting. Alexander Le Grand knew how to pull all the strings to position...More
