TOWN PRESENTATION

Cultural and historical capital of the Cotentin, Coutances has developed a harmonious complementarity between culture, heritage and tourism. Dominated by its cathedral, the old Episcopal city invites you to discover and to linger.

Between the woods and the endless open sea, the coast of the country and its dunes Coutances notched harbors deep is one of the wildest of the Normandy coast. Annoville of the dunes, the tip of Agon, the havens Regnéville and Saint-Germain-sur-Ay are all landscapes in the rugged beauty that constantly renew the vagaries of water and light.


SIGHTSEEING

The churches of Saint-Pierre and Saint-Nicolas, Quesnel-Morinière museum, park, old streets lined with old shops and mansions give the city a charm that has not lessened the reconstruction of the postwar period.
