Abbaye de Mortemer

This religious monument in the Eure department, within easy reach of Le Havre and Rouen, has long been renowned for its paranormal activity. The star of the horror show is The White Lady. Thought to be Mathilde l’Emperesse, the daughter of the Abbaye de Mortemer’s founder, her spirit was even photographed back in 1999. Paranormal investigators on French television have since debunked the image, or at least accurately recreated it using some staging and lighting trickery, but this has done little to extinguish people’s fascination with this historic place.
