A steep staircase up to the chapel, there the entrance to the very beautiful garden. Admission with the mobile ticket tiptop. Through the garden past great sculptures there is always a view of the bay, beautiful. A small break in the café very cozy. The shop is very tasteful with many beautiful items. We liked it very much

Beautiful garden, the only problem is that finding a parking space is a big challenge as the street is open only to residents. Put on comfortable shoes for the climb and enjoy the view!

It is one of the most beautiful parks that I have ever been to. Highly recommend. I'm definitely going to come back at this place one day.

This garden is a must-do in Etretat. Very well-maintain and good balance between the greenery and the art.

It's worth the cost to go and see and beyond that very nice hike to do
