Very interesting place to visit if you are interested in WW2. There's quite a lot of tunnels and you are free to roam inside all the bunkers. There's also a good audio guide in lots of languages. Very friendly lady at the reception desk.

Located at 7kms in the North East from Sainte-Mère-Eglise, this battery built in 1941, is one of the first buildings of the Atlantic Wall in France. Tunnels are made between bunkers and turned up into the maze. Guides give us a good idea of what...More
