Sandy beaches, steep cliffs and sea – typical Normandy
In Normandy you can find lovely beaches that are long and fine sandy only occasionally interrupted by the odd spectacular rock formations which are mighty steep cliffs that drop down towards the ocean. The beach strips near Deauville, Cabourg, Trouville and Quineville are well known. The beach of Quineville is due to its width ideal for windsurfing and kite surfing. The renowned Omaha Beach at Saint-Laurent-sur-Mer and Colleville is today a popular bathing beach with a very historical significance as it was one of the beaches where the Allied troops landed on the 6th July 1944 on so called “D-Day”. In Caen there is the famous Mémorial de Caen which is a museum about the history of the 20th century where you can learn everything about “D-Day”. Furthermore in Saint-Laurent-sur-Mer there is the Musée Mémorial d'Omaha Beach. The shingle beach of Étretat attracts many visitors in the summer as it is shielded by the high surrounding cliffsArtists such as Claude Monet and Gustave Courbet made painting of these impressive cliffs. Two natural arches made of stone, Porte d’Aval and Manneporte as well as the 70 metre high rocky pinnacle Aiguille form a lovely ensemble.
Normandy’s art, culture and history
In Normandy next to the beaches and beautiful nature particularly interesting coastal towns and many medieval constructions are an attraction which lure. The monastery rock Mont Saint Michel is especially famous. It is situated on the border with Brittany near Avranches and is one of the most impressive places in France. Just standing before the forty metre high rocky island with its small town and big monastery complex is an attraction itself. Simply walk across during low tide and visit the place and monastery complex. Abbey church and Gothic cloister as well as the relic of the archangel Michael are worth seeing which drew pilgrim thousands of years ago to this place. Art lovers and garden experts will not miss out visiting the Fondation Claude Monet in Giverny. Monet personally created this garden around his former house and then made use of it as a motive for his paintings including the famous water lilies. You can visit the garden as well as the dwelling house of the famous painter. Who should you be interested in art and history then why not consider having a look at the famous wall carpet of Bayeux. This about 60 metre long embroidered carpet shows the campaign Wilhelm of the conqueror to England in an impressive iconography and is regarded as one of the most important documents of early medieval art.
The city of Le Havre is known above all for its coloured concrete structures made by the architect Auguste Perret and is now part of UNESCO World Heritage. The Finnish director Aki Kaurismäki was able to perfectly capture the pleasant atmosphere of the French port in his film "Le Havre". Also worth a day trip is Rouen which is known for the more than 2,000 preserved half-timbered houses and basilica as well as cathedral.
