Basse-Normandie France City Vector Map

Basse-Normandie, also known as Lower Normandy in English, was a former administrative region in northwestern France. However, as of 2016, it was merged with the region of Haute-Normandie to form a new administrative region known as Normandy. This reorganization was part of a national administrative restructuring effort in France.

Basse-Normandie was known for its picturesque landscapes, including the beautiful Normandy beaches, lush countryside, and historic towns. Some of the notable places and attractions in the former Basse-Normandie region included:

  1. Mont Saint-Michel: A stunning island commune with a medieval abbey perched on top, often surrounded by the sea during high tide. It is a UNESCO World Heritage site and a popular tourist destination.
  2. D-Day Landing Beaches: These historic sites, such as Omaha Beach and Utah Beach, played a crucial role in the Allied invasion of Normandy during World War II.
  3. Caen: The city of Caen is known for its historical significance, with attractions like the Château de Caen, the Abbaye-aux-Hommes, and the Abbaye-aux-Dames.
  4. Bayeux: Famous for the Bayeux Tapestry, which depicts the events leading up to the Norman Conquest of England in 1066.
  5. Calvados: This region is famous for its apple orchards and the production of Calvados, a popular apple brandy.
  6. Beach Resorts: Basse-Normandie had several beach resorts along its coastline, offering opportunities for relaxation and water sports.

Since the administrative regions in France were restructured, you would now refer to this region as “Normandy” rather than “Basse-Normandie.” Normandy continues to be a popular tourist destination, known for its rich history, culture, and natural beauty.
