Place of the Normandy landings of WWII
Arromanches is a coastal village in Lower Normandy France, about 25 kilometers from Caen, which was the geographical center of the Normandy landings during WWII. The village is tiny (about 500 people), and is still "dead" during the winter. They have 2 types of tourists, French tourists who come to the coast to spend the summer and tourists who base their visit to get to know the Normandy landings. In the summer it is overflowing with tourism, accommodation and services. In winter many of the restaurants and hotels are closed, and there is only a souvenir shop and a bar.If you really care about history, I'm sure to get close to the beach and see the scene with the big floating ports will give you goosebumps.
