Fodor's Review

Fécamp is also the home of Benedictine liqueur. The Palais de la Bénédictine, across from the tourist office, is a florid building dating from 1892 that mixes neo-Gothic and Renaissance styles. Watery pastiche or taste-tingling architectural cocktail? Whether you're shaken or stirred, this remains one of Normandy's most popular attractions. The interior is just as exhausting as the facade. Paintings, sculptures, ivories, advertising posters, and fake bottles of Bénédictine compete for attention with a display of the ingredients used for the liqueur, and a chance to sample it. There's also a shop selling Bénédictine products and souvenirs.
