Le Havre, listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site

Particularly hard hit by intense bombing, the city razed to the ground in September 1944 was one of the most damaged cities in Europe: more than 5,000 people were killed and 12,500 buildings destroyed over 150 hectares. The city and its port, essential to the life of the country, had to emerge from the still smoldering ruins. The French government therefore entrusted the reconstruction of Le Havre to one of the greatest architects of his time: Auguste Perret. A contemporary and master of Le Corbusier, he enjoyed the aura of a humanist architect who knew how to give concrete its letters of nobility, a material that he worked like stone.
Perret realized the dream of every urban planner by letting his style express itself fully on 133 hectares. He directed the reconstruction of the city center until his death in 1954 and left a masterpiece. The innovative architect inscribed "the city in measure, like a musical harmony": wide avenues and the rigorous layout of the roads give a dimension to Le Havre that is both monumental and poetic, opening up wide perspectives towards the sky and the ocean.
We advise you to visit in Le Havre the Appartement témoin, the André Malraux modern art museum, the Port of Le Havre or the Saint Joseph church. 

Fecamp, city of art and history.

Fécamp, surrounded by the highest cliffs in Normandy, was founded in Roman times as a fishing village called Fiscanum, derived from Fisk meaning "fish".
In the 10th century, the Dukes of Normandy made the city one of their capitals. In front of their palace, they founded the abbey of the Holy Trinity. Second place of pilgrimage in Normandy after Mont-Saint-Michel, the town attracts many pilgrims thanks to the relic of the Precious Blood.
In the 19th century, Fécamp turned to the great Newfoundland fishery. Cod joined the other star fish: herring. Major works were undertaken in the port.
We advise you to visit the Palais de la Bénédictine in Fecamp, a building mixing neo-Gothic and neo-Renaissance styles, built at the end of the 19th century in Fecamp for Alexandre-Prosper Le Grand, a spirits merchant who made his fortune by inventing and marketing Benedictine liqueur. 

Dieppe, the city with four ports

The oldest French seaside resort, Dieppe is where the first sea baths were born. Facing the English Channel, the city offers a real immersion in the marine atmosphere: seagulls circle over the city, iodized fragrances float in the air, fishermen sell their fish, the long beach and its promenade come alive to the rhythm of the kites, the restaurants' kitchens tickle the taste buds...
Fishing, trade, cross-channel, yachting, many are the activities of the port. So in Dieppe, it is easy to practice water sports: sailing, sea fishing, kayaking, paddle, dinghy ... and more activities to have fun.
Facing the waterfront, the Dieppe Castle-Museum immerses visitors in local history: collections of ivories, paintings, old maps. Lovers of painting, and in particular of the impressionist movement, will find works by Renoir, Pissarro, Boudin... The city of Dieppe was an important place of inspiration for artists... The city has many cultural places. The Estran Cité de la Mer museum introduces visitors to navigation, the life of fishermen and the Norman maritime environment through its large aquariums.
Located in the 19th century theater, the Memorial recalls the Anglo-Canadian Raid of August 19, 1942 called, Operation Jubilee. In France, it was called "the largest of the small landings". Through documents, objects and photos, the August 19, 1942 Memorial bears witness to the events of the Second World War.

Rouen, Capital of Normandy, City of 100 steeples

A city with many facets and a surprising dynamism, Rouen can be discovered through its cobbled streets and its unique heritage. Classified as a "City of Art and History", Rouen impresses by the numerous traces of its medieval past, which are not without reminding the History of France.
It is in the historic heart, on the right bank of the Seine, that one discovers the riches of the city. To appreciate Rouen, you have to stroll through the neighborhoods and constantly
to admire the many buildings and to discover secret places. The half-timbered houses, the Saint-Ouen abbey, the Law Courts, the Sainte-Jeanne D'Arc church, the Notre-Dame cathedral, ... You should also walk along the rue du Gros Horloge, and wander through the narrow streets of the Carré d'Or, bounded by the Place du Vieux-Marché and the Saint-Maclou church. In Rouen, it is pleasant to sit on a terrace and imagine yourself out of time.
The left bank speaks of its industrial past and its ongoing metamorphosis. The tower of the departmental archives touches the sky while the Picasso cranes, installed in front of hangar 106 - Scène de Musiques Actuelles - evoke the port past of the site. By moving its commercial port downstream, Rouen now offers landscaped quays for strolling and relaxing. In the distance, like hyphens, bridges with the names of men and women who have left their mark on the city: William the Conqueror, Joan of Arc, Boieldieu, Mathilde, or Flaubert, for a long time the highest lift bridge in Europe to let boats pass under its deck. On the Seine, we discover between two waters the island La Croix, its buildings and its sports complexes. It is here that the people of Rouen come to encourage the Dragons, the local ice hockey team, crowned with numerous European titles.
