The Mont Saint-Michel
The abbey at Mont-Saint-Michel has attracted countless pilgrims. Used as a fortress during the 100-Years’ War, it became a prison during the French Revolution.
Port of La Rochelle
This was the most eminent French port in the Middle Ages thanks to wine and salt trading.
The Breton port's granite houses and church bell tower give way to a few fishing boats coming back to land.
This fortification was used to defend the French from the English before being turned into a prison.
Haras du Pin national stud
Leading royal stud, it is the "Versailles for horses". From a bird's eye-view, the buildings are in a horse-shoe shape.
The Colleville-sur-mer American Cemetery
This sanctuary of the Normandy Landings on 6th June 1944 is home to over 9,000 Carrara marble tombstones spread over the 70 hectares of land situated in the town of Colleville-sur-Mer.
