History

If you’re interested in history and heritage, you’ll be in your element ! Explore the architectural, historical and natural heritage of Terres de Nacre and its museums.

You’re interested in :

Old stone buildings are more your thing  : as you stroll around, immerse yourself in the picturesque villages built of Caen stone located around Douvres-la-Délivrande. Medieval fortifications, Roman and Gothic churches and Rococo villas, soak up the history !

The Second World War : the historic battle of 1944 took place in Normandy…
On 6 June, more than 150,000 soldiers landed by sea and air in Normandy to liberate France and then Europe from the grip of the Nazis. Retrace the steps of the Canadian and British soldiers who liberated us on Juno beach (Canadian sector) and Sword beach (British sector).

Visit the remains of the Atlantic Wall and the museums dedicated to the history of the Second World War, such as the Radar museum in Douvres-la-Délivrande and the Juno Beach Centre in Courseulles-sur-mer.

Spend some quiet time at the graves of those who gave their lives for our freedom, at the Reviers-Beny Canadian cemetery.

The seaside bathing era : bathing in the sea was fashionable in the 19th century ; the railway lines were developed to encourage Parisians to holiday in Normandy.
Fishing villages gave way to pretty seaside resorts with parks and gardens along the Côte de Nacre. Some Belle Epoque villas still overlook the sea at Courseulles-sur-mer, Bernières-sur-mer, Saint-Aubin-sur-mer, Langrune-sur-mer and Luc-sur-mer.
