A land of sailors and churches
This "Norman Finistere" offers an ideal playground for lovers of old stones and history enthusiasts. The heritage of the Cotentin and the Manche is so diverse in its forms and origins that it cannot be summed up, but is always intimately linked to the sea. It is illustrated by the buildings listed as Unesco World Heritage Sites: Mont Saint-Michel and the Vauban Towers and the no less famous Bayeux Tapestry. Many of these places are the setting for festivals as renowned as they are eclectic.
