Normandy is a region of northern France. Its varied coastline includes white-chalk cliffs and WWII beachheads, including Omaha Beach, site of the famous D-Day landing. 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. (Wikipedia)
Normandy’s other world-famous date is June 1944, when the Allies launched their attack on the Landing Beaches. The events are commemorated today and the area around that particular piece of coast is full of museums and memorials, telling the story. (www.tripsavvy.com/normandy-region-of-france-3863169)
