Normandy

Normandy

Normandy has had important roles for France and for Europe throughout its history. It was here in 1066 William the conqueror the duke of Normandy, orchestrated his mission to conquer England. This amazing historical event is captured on the Bayeux Tapestries in Bayeux. Normandy became an important region for the impressionist artists and art lovers can explore this in Monet’s Giverny, The Musee des Beaux Arts in Rouen and the Boudin Museum in Honfleur. But perhaps the most dramatic events in Normandy took place in 1944 with the D-Day landings. 2014 marks the 70th anniversary of that day.
