Why visit Normandy?
Normandy is a region filled with history. Whether in medieval times or during the Second World War, Normandy played an important role in the history of France. At the border with Brittany stands the famous Mont-Saint-Michel. It is in the middle of the Mont-Saint-Michel bay that we discover this architectural and religious gem. Its small alleys, lined with shops and restaurants, will take you to the Mont-Saint-Michel Abbey and its cloister. Nature and great spaces lovers will marvel at the bay fauna and flora, animated by its tides. Further north, in Bayeux, you can admire the famous Bayeux Tapestry, which tells about the England conquest by the Normans during 11th century. Going up in the history and more precisely on June 6th, 1944, we land on the landing beaches. Omaha Beach, Sword Beach, Utah Beach and many other beaches on the Normandy coast have seen thousands of Allied soldiers come to liberate France during the Second World War. Along the coast you can visit beaches, blockhouses, military cemeteries and many other places filled with history. At Caen, you can visit the Caen Memorial, a "Museum for Peace" on the theme of the two world wars. Don't miss out Caen and Rouen, the two historic capitals of Normandy, as well as Le Havre And Dieppe, the two major maritime crossroads in the region. Nature and geology lovers will appreciate the downstream cliffs in Etretat as well as its pebble beaches.
