75th anniversary of Allieds landing
Cities and population welcome visitors
In the Bay of Cotentin, the history of the Battle of Normandy unfolds at Sainte-Mère-Eglise, first town liberated by the Allies, the battle of Carentan and the airdrops. Come and visit the sites and museums dedicated to D-Day, and Utah Beach, the first American landing sector in Normandy.
To help you organise your break in the Bay of Cotentin, the Tourist Offices of Sainte-Mère-Eglise and Carentan offer suggestions for week end and longer breaks, leisure activities and visits.
