To see, to do in Normandy > Discover Le Havre

Le Havre in the heart of Normandy

The largest city in Normandy, Le Havre or "LH", as they say here, is located 2 hours from Paris. It is a city with radical modernity. In 2005, a sudden change of heart changed his fate: the center rebuilt by Auguste PERRET after the Second World War is recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Revealing Le Havre to the eyes of the world in a new light, this inscription has also enabled the city to demonstrate to all its ability to reinvent itself. Le Havre, Phoenix city, still carries the motto as well as its creator Francis I "nutrisco et extinguo" (feed the good fire, extinguish the bad).
