To see, to do in Normandy > Discover the Seine-Maritime


The Alabaster Coast owes its name to the 140 km of chalky cliffs between the estuary of the Seine and that of the Somme. It is in Etretat that these cliffs are the most picturesque: they surprise the visitor by their verticality and confront him with a wild beauty and a bit austere.




Capital of the Alabaster Coast, Fécamp lives around its dynamic port. From its long beach, and also from Cap Fagnet, the highest point of the cliffs, we discover a sea and a sky with changing hues and moods, which have always inspired painters and writers. Not far away, other seaside resorts open their beaches: Etretat, Yport, Saint-Pierre-en-Port, the Grandes and Petites Dalles. And then, the charming villages of the Pays de Caux will reveal their riches, on their paths or in their museums.




Can not spend a weekend, a holiday or a holiday in Rouen without going through the Gros-Horloge, the Notre Dame Cathedral, the Abbey Church Saint-Ouen, the Museum of Fine Arts, the panorama of the Sainte-Catherine Hill from Bonsecours, the English cemetery of Petit-Quevilly, the half-timbered streets of the city center, the Château du Taillis, the Panorama XXL on the banks of the Seine or the Historial Jeanne d'Arc. The heritage in Rouen is essential, but other cultural venues will allow you to live essential experiences. Let yourself be tempted by unusual cultural sites such as Corderie Vallois and its many collections, the National Museum of Education, the museum of ironwork Le Secq des Tournelles, the mansions and castles of the Seine Valley, the Circus Theater 'Elbeuf or the monumental cemetery and its stelae of famous people.
