Please come and discover an exceptional place, in the heart of history: Omaha Beach

Vierville-sur-Mer is a city in Calvados (Lower Normandy), located at 20 kilometers West of Bayeux. Vierville sur Mer is famous in the world because it is one of the 3 D-Day beaches of June 6th, 1944. This area is mostly known under the name of Omaha Beach.

On 6 June 1944 (D-Day), the U.S. Army’s 116th Infantry Regiment of the 29th Infantry Division, along with the 5th Ranger Battalion, and A, B, and C Companies of the 2nd Ranger Battalion landed on Omaha Beach.

An artificial harbor like the one in Arromanches was built but was quickly destroy because of the violent storm on June 19th, 1944. There is only one remain of this harbor that you can see on the beach.
