About Le Havre

This very old city (decreed a major port by Francois I in 1517) mostly looks very new, due to the relentless bombing by the British and Americans during WWII. After that and the German destruction of the port, well, not much was left.

Still very important to keeping French shipping competitive with North Atlantic ports, it was rebuilt by innovative architect Auguste Perret over two decades after the war. For good or bad, it is internationally recognized for the innovative use of concrete in modern buildings throughout the city. Le Havre is an industrialized deep water port, right at the mouth of the mighty Seine. It’s about a 2 hour drive from either the D day beaches or Paris (the opposite direction of course). A direct train to Caen, though long promised, has yet to happen. It’s easier to get to Rouen, just an hour away.

Culturally, Le Havre offers the second largest collection of Impressionist art in France, behind only the Musee D’Orsay in Paris. Not surprisingly, local sport focuses on sailing, rowing and regattas.
