Worth a visit. Historic significance, another good stop-off along the Normandy coastline. Not a whole lot to see here but lovely countryside in nice weather

We loved the rawness of this historical site. No frills. Dan was so knowledgable and was very patient at our bombarding him with so many questions. Thank you for explaining it all so well and with such passion for the history around the site.
