What to see at the The Normandy Beaches
Caen is the site of the Memorial museum of the Normandy Landings. The city was largely destroyed during WWII.
Visiting the D day landing beaches of Normandy can be a moving and awe inspiring experience. The 50 miles of shore line with beautiful sandy and quaint now peaceful villages were the site of the fiercest fighting of the 20th century 70 years ago. Omaha Beach, Juno Beach, Utah Beach were the scene of bloody conflict of WWII. Now you can view remnants of the war and pay homage to the many lives lost there at the monuments, museums and cemeteries that have been erected to commemorate the events.
