A Tribute to Norman History
Surrounded by the countryside of Normandy, Caen is a proud city which pays poignant tribute to its past. It suffered greatly during World War II and although most of the structures have been carefully restored, one monument remaining partly in ruins is Saint-Étienne-le-Vieux church.
The church is across from a floral park overlooked by the stately 11th-century Abbaye aux Hommes, built by William the Conqueror, who is also buried there. His wife is buried in the equally grand Abbaye aux Dames by an even larger park to the east. Between the 2 lies another of William’s creations, the remarkably intact 11th-century Norman castle which now houses museums of Normandy history and fine art.
Another unmissable museum is the Memorial for Peace, a sensitive portrayal of the horrors of war, with particular emphasis on the D-Day landings on beaches north of the city. One road leading there passes Pegasus Bridge and the large Caen-Ouistreham passenger ferry port. The city is also served by Carpiquet Airport and a train station.
The surrounding streets are lined with shops and restaurants, and there are a few half-timbered buildings dotted around. The bars on Rue Ecuyére offer some of the best nightlife and are popular with the large student population.
