The city of Caen.

The city of Caen, also known as the City of a Hundred Spires, is located about 15 kilometers from the English Channel, in Normandy in the department of Calvados. It is a historic French city with a population of about 110,000. The city is marked by the heritage of William the Conqueror, former Duke of Normandy and King of England, who gave Caen an important place during the Middle Ages. It was also the scene of an important battle during the Second World War which led to the construction of the internationally known Peace Memorial in the city.

Moreover, Caen is directly connected to the A84 and the A88 and therefore to the Brittany region and the Parisian Basin in addition to being surrounded by a ring road.

What to visit in Caen?

The city of a hundred steeples has built up a collection of magnificent historical monuments thanks to its rich history, which attracts many tourists every year.
