Mythical places

In La manche and Normandy, the lands are forever marked by the events linked to the war and the landing. It is by evoking mythical names that visitors identify Normandy: Utah beach, Omaha Beach and their sisters in pain, Colleville, Sainte-Mère Église.

Here is a series of articles on mythical places.
