A seaside resort on the Alabaster Coast in Seine-Maritime, Fécamp is a place of unequalled natural charm. Now a Town of Art and History, the erstwhile city of the Dukes of Normandy offers a wonderful natural and architectural heritage. Of course it has its beach and tall cliffs, and its location at the end of a dry-hanging valley is another plus.

Appreciated by nature-lovers and hikers following the GR 21 path, Cap Fagnet has a bird reserve as well as an 11th-century chapel containing many ex-votos. From this impressive cliff standing 105 metres tall, you will enjoy a stunning view of the sea and Fécamp!

When it comes to culture, the town has a number of interesting buildings like the Gothic Abbey Church of the Holy Trinity and the Gothic and Renaissance-inspired Benedictine Palace. A masterpiece of the 19th century, the latter houses a museum of ancient and religious art, as well as an exhibition on the history of the famous Bénédictine liqueur, with a tour ending in a tasting.

Fécamp was once a major fishing port and boats set off from there for Newfoundland, an island off the Canadian coast, in order to fish for cod. They were called "terre-neuvas" and you can discover their story at the Fisheries Museum. Based in a former cod-drying facility, it will tell you all about the harbour's maritime past and the fishermen's lives.

After visiting these attractions, take a breath of fresh air as you stroll along the seafront promenade, or relax on the harbour pier. Just like the anglers, take your time and enjoy the spectacle of the waves coming and going, the seagulls' cries and the authentic atmosphere of the place!

Additional information
Fécamp

In Normandy, on the Alabaster Coast, 2 hours from Paris, Fécamp seduces with its authenticity. Heir to a rich past, it bears witness to the great period of industrial fishing.

Former capital of the Dukes of Normandy, cradle of the Benedictine liquor, strategic site of the Atlantic Wall during the 2nd World War, the city asks only to reveal its riches. The fishing and marina port, in the heart of the city, gives rhythm to the life of this multi-faceted seaside resort. A stone's throw away, the Pays de Caux invites you to hike and discover the terroir, in a preserved landscape where flashes of green enhance the charm of old stones and thatched cottages. Animated all year round with its shops, restaurants, Casino and major events, Fécamp is an authentic stopover and the promise of an unforgettable stay.
