Remembrance tourism and green tourism in the Cotentin region

From the famous 0 marker in the centre of the village, you can visit the church tower where soldier John Steele hung on during Operation Overlord, as well as the Airborne Museum, a tribute to the American airborne troops of the 82nd and 101st Divisions.

The famous D-Day beaches are nearby: Utah Beach and its museum (12 km), the Azeville and Crisbeck batteries (15 km), the Pointe du Hoc artillery battery (38 km), Omaha Beach (44 km) and the Colleville American cemetery, as well as numerous sites and museums recounting the pages of this period of history, including the Caen Memorial.

Sainte-mère-Eglise will also be the starting point for walks and cycle rides along the GR233, taking in the Parc du Marais du Cotentin, the Baie des Veys, the villages of Saint Vaast-la Hougue and Barfleur, the Pointe de la Hague, the Bay of Ecalgrain and the sunsets over Cap de Carteret.

City of the sea

Located in the former Gare Maritime Transatlantique, La Cité de la Mer is Normandy's tourist site dedicated to the adventure of man and the sea and the emotions of the deep.


Sainte Mère Eglise

Set in 3,000m2 of parkland, the Airborne Museum is dedicated to the paratroopers: the first building, in the shape of a parachute, houses a Waco glider in its original condition, as well as a number of display cases filled with period documents, eyewitness accounts, weapons, ammunition, etc.


The farm museum

In Sainte Mère Eglise, in this former manor farm, step back a century to discover the daily life of a grassland farm at that time...


Utah Beach Museum

The Utah Beach Museum recounts the military and technical feat that made the Madeleine beach famous. Remnants of the battle can still be seen on the beach, but the most precious memories are preserved in the museum, built around a former blockhouse of strongpoint WN 5, on the very spot where American troops landed on Normandy soil on 6 June 1944.


Pointe du Hoc

Stormed on the morning of 6 June by Colonel Rudder's Rangers, it was also one of the strong points of the German fortifications on the coast. Today, the site is a reminder of what an artillery battery was like, with its fire direction post, casemates, shelters, etc. Information panels. Free admission to the site.


Omaha, American cemetery

Omaha Beach was the name used by the Allies during the Second World War to designate one of the five beaches of the Normandy landings.
Allocated to American troops, it was the beach where the Allies lost the most troops, earning it the nickname of "Bloody Omaha" or "the Beach of Blood". The American cemetery at Colleville sur mer, covering an area of 70 hectares, is home to the remains of 9387 soldiers, 307 of whom are unidentified.
A Star of David marks the graves of the Jewish soldiers, while a Latin cross tops the graves of all the others.


Caen Memorial

The extraordinary success of the Memorial was initially the brainchild of its founder, Jean-Marie Girault. Caen, bombed in the summer of 1944 and a martyred city during the Liberation, deserved a tribute commensurate with its suffering.


The airship hangar

The hangar was built by the French Navy to house the airships used to escort convoys and spot submarines and mines during the First World War. Under German occupation from 1940 to 1944, it was later used by the Americans.
Unique in Europe, this huge building can be visited in 2 stages: firstly, the museum explaining its history and secondly, a visit to the hangar with a flight demonstration of single-seater airships in July and August only or during open days announced in the press.


The Bayeux Tapestry

Classified as a "Memory of the World" by UNESCO, the Bayeux Tapestry (Calvados) is a 70-metre-long embroidery created in the 11th century. Celebrating the conquest of England by William, Duke of Normandy, this linen canvas was probably embroidered by monks in southern England after the Battle of Hastings on 14 October 1066.



Anchored on the eastern flank of the Cotentin peninsula, at its north-eastern end, this charming fishing port is undoubtedly one of the most picturesque in the Channel. You'll love its authenticity. Its gateway to England and Northern Europe makes it an opportune and practical port of call for short sea voyages. Although it remains a beaching port, access is facilitated by an entry lock. Boaters wishing to visit the Channel Islands (Alderney, Guernsey, Jersey, Sark) or the ports of Calvados and Seine-Maritime will find it an ideal anchorage.


St Vaast La Hougue

Saint-Vaast la Hougue is the only port in the English Channel that faces east, sheltered from the winds of the ocean, making it a very safe port. It is an ideal stopover for boats coming from the east and north before rounding the Cotentin peninsula and heading for the Channel Islands and the north coast of Brittany.
