3rd time here and always worth a stop to have a look at it. The only one left in Normandie, and only 2 in France. Sometimes tricky to find depending on where you are coming from. Basically, it is on the route D979 as you...More

Amazing tiger tank that was abandoned at the side of the road. The locals put together to stop this being scrapped. Well worth a visit!

This tank is located in a great location. It's an enormous machine which was saved from destruction after the war. The locals in the town are really nice and it's worth a visit if you are going that way.
