OVERVIEW

 

A tour to Normandy represents an opportunity to remember the D-Day landings in 1944. The area is ranked 3rd amongst the largest regions in France for historical monuments. Normandy also gives the students the opportunity to study other periods of history such as the medieval times and Norman Conquest.

 

Just off the coast, the rocky island of Mont-Saint-Michel is topped by a soaring Gothic abbey. The city of Rouen, dominated by Cathédrale Notre-Dame de Rouen, is where military leader and Catholic saint Joan of Arc was executed in 1431.

 

Recently reunited  as a single region, the area that was once the dukedom of Normandy was until 2015 divided into two administrative regions - Upper Normandy (Haute Normandie), capital Rouen, with its two departments, Eure (27) and Seine Maritime (76), and Lower Normandy, (Basse Normandie) capital Caen, comprising the departments of Calvados (14), Manche (50), and Orne(61).

Since 2016, the region of Normandy has been once again reunited, to the satisfaction of many Normans.
