A pleasant walk along the sea to see the remains of the second World War: the battery of Longues-sur-Mer
An easy walk-visit in Normandy in the footsteps of the d-day landings of June 6, 1944. The visit is relatively short (1 to 2 hours), the path passes among the bunkers of the German battery of Longues-sur-Mer. The visit is completely free.
History of the site:
To prepare the landings the allies bombed the site by planes but that was the warships that destroyed the battery on June 6. The day after in the morning British soldiers took out the battery and captured the garrison.
The battery of Longues-sur-Mer even if it is very impressive did not have much impact on the battles of d-day. It was quickly put out of service.
One of the most interesting site of the battle of Normandy! Don't miss it.
