Honfleur Things to Do: 43 reviews and 70 photos
One imposing vestige of the old fortification of the city remains, the "Lieutenance," so called because it was the ome of Lieutenant King. It was originally (in the 16th Century) the gate to the city. On one side there is a monument to Samuel de Champlain who sailed from here to Canada and discovered the St. Lawrence seaway. It still stands at the entrance to the basin so at least symbolically still guards the city. HOwever, it does not deter an invasion of British, tourists that is.
Directions: It stands at the entrance to the basin beside the drawbridge.
