More About Caen

Caen, capital and largest city of Basse Normandie, may well not be a place where you'll want to spend much time. In the months of fighting in 1944 Caen was devastated, nonetheless, the city that nine hundred years ago was the favoured residence of William the Conqueror remains impressive.

Caen is a college city and thus very active. In summer, tourists (mainly British and German) gather in Normandy for Second World War remains and the Memorial for Peace.

Caen is a modern city, four-fifths of which was demoiolished in 1944 and rebuilt in the 1950s and 1960s. However, some old buildings remain, especially churches.

Its central feature is a ring of ramparts that no longer have a castle to protect, and, though there are the scattered spires and buttresses of two abbeys and eight old churches, roads and roundabouts fill the wide spaces where prewar houses stood. Approaches are along thunderous dual carriageways through industrial suburbs, now prospering once more following an influx of high-tech newcomers.

The ferry service between Portsmouth and Caen opened up an opportunity to forge links between the civic authorities and the communities of the Cities of Portsmouth and Caen. On 5 June 1987 a document was signed in the Guildhall, Portsmouth and in the Hotel de Ville, Caen on 6 June 1987, formally declaring that the two cities would undertake to foster exchanges and meetings between their respective citizens in all fields of endeavour. It has since provided opportunities for business and commerce, social and holiday visits, particularly by young people, sports clubs and arts projects.

Each year the Lord Mayor of Portsmouth visits Caen for the D-Day Commemoration Ceremonies and lays wreaths to commemorate those civilians and military personnel who died from both Countries.

The historic city of Caen has played a crucial role in Normandy’s history since it was founded in the 11th century by William the Conqueror.

Some six centuries after the city was sacked and torched by invading English armies in 1346, Caen’s old town was levelled once more during the shattering bombardments of the Normandy campaign. The city was bombed and set ablaze on D-Day, and by the time it was liberated by Canadian troops on 9 July 1944, over 80% of the city had been razed to rubble.

Practically all that remains of old Caen are the ramparts around the chateau and the city’s twin abbeys; the rest has been rebuilt in a typically utilitarian post-war style, using plenty of concrete and pale stone.

Today, Caen is a busy university city and commercial centre, with a clutch of excellent museums, including the groundbreaking Caen Mémorial. It’s a useful base for exploring the D-Day beaches and nearby Bayeux.
