Has anybody been to Brittany/Normandy?

I was in Caen in Normandy for about a week a few years ago. There is a big war memorial museum with good exhibits and beautiful grounds to walk around in when you want to think about what you've seen.

There are the beaches of course, and I vaguely remember being in this large castle-like structure which was half-demolished from the violence. I think they left it exactly that way as a reminder of the chaos.

we went to Normandy a couple of years ago.

 

Bayeaux is a nice town to base in. very convenient to the American beaches. we did one of the tours, with an English speaking guide, which worked out well. the hotel was the Churchill, right in town, and right near the Bayeaux Tapestries, which are a must-see.

 

and if you're there, you should also go to Mont Saint Michel. on the Normandy/Brittany border.

 

the beaches are awe inspiring, as is the American Cemetery. one can't really appreciate what was done there unless/until you've stood on the beach or the cliffs.
