Places to visit in the ‘Coutançais’ and on the coast
Normandy being steeped in history, there are many cultural treasures to explore and the ‘Coutançais’ is no exception. Besides the must-see Coutances cathedral, don’t forget the lesser-known historical sites, like the Cabane Vauban.
Enjoy discovering these places and allow yourself to be carried away by the history and magic that envelop them.
Exploring the ‘bocage’ means appreciating magnificent scenery and also discovering vestiges of the past via monuments open to the public: Hambye Abbey, the Letenneur Mausoleum, Saussey Manor and gardens, Cerisy-la-Salle Castle, Coutances botanical gardens or the Quesnel-Morinière Museum...
On the coast, explore the Gouville bathing huts, the Maillard Fishery in Hauteville-sur-Mer, the lime kilns of the Regnéville-sur-Mer Maritime Museum, traces of the past to be passed on to future generations so that history and traditions may never be forgotten.
