Fecamp (Lat. Fiscanus or Fiscanum), a place in Normandy, known for its famous abbey, which was dedicated to the Holy Trinity. It was founded in 658 by the count of Caux, but was destroyed in 841 by the Normans. Duke Richard I of Normandy had it rebuilt, and it was dedicated in 1006 as a Benedictine abbey to the Holy Trinity. The abbey lasted till the 18th century.
