Arromanches-les-Bains Travel Guide: 27 reviews and 108 photos

The beautiful bathing town of Arromanches les Bains is famous to have entertained during the Second World War one of the two harbors (Port Winston) built by the allies to disembark the soldiers and the restocking to effect the invasion of the Normandie. Port Winsotn, as it was called in code from the allies, is still entirely visible (especially from the top of the hill) and you can have a good idea about which was its original dimensions.

Enjoy your visit of Arromanches les Bains!!!

    Arromanches 360° is a beautiful memorial to those soldiers who fought so bravely. Thanks for the wonderful insight to such a historic place.
