The Palais Bénédictine is a building constructed at the end of the 19th century, a few minutes from the port of Fécamp. It is an establishment whose construction was requested under the order of Alexander the Great. A wine merchant, he would have with him the secret recipe of an elixir created and elaborated by the Benedictine monks of Fécamp. He then decided to build a building dedicated to the liqueur, which he later named Benedictine. Without hesitation, he asked to found a building without equal, a masterpiece that would bring to light the recipe of this liquor that seemed lost forever.
