The William the Conqueror's city. It's now the capital of the Lower Normandy (Basse Normandie).
The medieval castel was began by William the Conqueror in the 1060's.
On each side of it, you will find the Ladie's and the Men's abbeys founded by William and his wife, Mathilda.
Despite of the bombing raids which badly damaged the city in 1944, it still has a beautiful old district and many green spaces.
