Sees

Normandy is an area with an important history and one entwined with that of Britain. William the Conqueror was born at Falaise and the castle is open to the public and provides a very interesting tour. After 1066, great Norman families had estates on both sides of the channel and most of the English aristocracy were in fact Norman. This did not stop the wars between England and Normandy which continued on and off until Normandy became a province ruled directly by Paris. There is much evidence of this turbulent history in the architecture and castles in the area.In more recent times, the summer of 1944 marked the beginning of the end of World War II but for Normandy it was a time of destruction. The D-Day beaches are sites which mark the event of the landings with museums and exhibitions. However there are many other areas in the region that also saw battles and bombing raids culminating in the battle of the Falaise Pocket.This year, 2014, marks the 70th anniversary of D-Day and the Battle of Normandy and there are many events in the region to commemorate this event and to celebrate the liberation of Normandy.
