"A peaceful war theatre" Port-en-Bessin-Huppain by Mikebond
Port-en-Bessin-Huppain Travel Guide: 9 reviews and 38 photos
I visited Port-en-Bessin with my parents during our stay in Basse-Normandie. We had rented a house in Sainte-Honorine-des-Pertes, very close to it.
Port-en-Bessin lies on the beach that was called Omaha Beach after the landing on Normandie on 6th June 1944, when the liberation of Europe started. This village had been conquered by the German troops and today it is worth visiting for the German defensive posts that were built on the beach.
- Pros:it has a beautiful beach
- Cons:it reminds of sad times of the European history
It is a universal truth that nature is more powerful than mankind, as these photos show. Lots of young men have died... more travel advice
