Landmarks and Historic Buildings

Overlooking the sea from a height of 110m, Mont Canisy is an important site where 2 batteries built by the French Navy from 1935 to 1940 were taken and extended by the Germans. Originally designed to ensure the security of the estuary and the port of Le Havre, the batteries became a major link in the Atlantic Wall.

Several features remain today including casemates, gun emplacements and a 250m subterranean gallery. Guided tours are available in the high season.
