Discover Caen

Caen is a beautiful city located in the country of France in the region of Normandy. The city has a long and illustrious history, thanks to its 10th century founding by William the Conqueror. Caen stands as an important economic and cultural centre for many people in the region.

The architecture of Caen is varied, ranging from its old cobblestone streets to baroque churches, 17th-century mansions, and more modern buildings dating back to 18th century rebuilds after WW2 bombings. The natural beauty of Caen includes lush green parks along with riverside beaches that are perfect for relaxing days out or romantic strolls together.

A visit to Caen should not be missed if you ever have the chance! Two must-see attractions are Abbaye aux Hommes and Abbaye aux Dames; two famous abbeys built by William I at different times during his rule over Normandy. You can also take a trip up La Tour d'Elle--the most iconic tower built by William I-where you'll find great views across all of Caen from above!
