Curiosities of Normandie !!

I have passed thru and visit briefly as a road warrior in me. Normandie has been with me for a long time and many visits to its glorious sites. I like to update this post on text and links and hope you enjoy it as I. Therefore, here are some curiosities of Normandie !! We now take the trip on the N24 to Rennes and there the A84 to Caen and then the D579 to all these towns taken alternative routes along winding hilly roads and coasting by the beaches. Sublime !

One nice hilly town we go always is Équemauville located in the Department of Calvados 14 as all the towns here are. It is surrounded by the towns of Barneville-La-Bertran, Honfleur and Pennedepie. Équemauville is located 4 km from Honfleur. The Church of St. Peter, (St Pierre) is from the end of the 19C. Here in September 1477, the King of Portugal Alfonso V visited this Chapel every morning before returning to his Kingdom. Indeed, he would have decided to renounce his throne, writing his will in Honfleur.

We follow up with Villers-sur-Mer another dandy beach town. It has a wonderful beach front, and sandy beach.  The Church of Saint-Martin is impressive and worth coming back for more. It was built in the second half of the 19C on a neo Gothic style and enrich with wonderful stained glass.  And another nice Casino right across from the beach from the groupe Tranchant.
