Pointe du Hoc Cricqueville-en-Bessin
#5 of 188 Sights & Landmarks in Calvados
... I participated in a Bayeux Shuttle American D-Day experience tour, which included stops and extraordinarily well presented information explaining the significance of many of the Operation Overlord/D-Day sites.
The views from the cliffs are beautiful but show what incredible bravery and sacrifice it took for the Rangers to achieve the success of their mission.

... Saint Pierre in the town center, but without any doubt, Basilica Sanctuaire Sainte Therese is the most popular place of interest in the town, even more, it is one of the most visited pilgrimage site in France.
The views from the domes are amazing but make sure you can achieve the over 300 steps, well worth it though!!

From the sea, the panoramic view of the beach, the amazing houses across the coastline, the steep cliffs and the relics give an outstanding impression to all the senses.
Beautiful views of the harbour that was engineered by the allied forces are a poignant reminder of what was a gruelling beginning of the end of WW2.

When you visit Normandy and view the American and British and Canadian Cemeteries there is a different kind of remembrance to the one you get at La Cambe.

Both memorial sites are of particular interest as my Great Uncle is remebered at the Bayeux site, and he fought and lost his life in Tilly.

Partially excavated but you can appreciate how important this site was in context of the D Day landings, historian Gary gave us a fascinating insight into the history of the battery and the politics involved in it...
We were in Normandy visiting the D-Day sites non-stop for 5 days and the Maisy Battery stands out among the many sites we visited (all the main ones).
