The Cathedral of Coutances
Built in the 13th century, Coutances Cathedral is, along with Mont-Saint-Michel, a major work of Norman Gothic. In summer, an extraordinary guided tour allows you to discover, at 30 meters from the ground, its high galleries and its prodigious lantern tower.
It is on foot that Coutances reveals itself best. Start by getting lost in the labyrinth of the jardin des plantes. There, between Italian-style terraces and groves of exotic trees, the perfume of the 19th century still floats. Close by, the steep streets of the old town, lined with private mansions and old craftsmen’s houses, are as many escapes towards the bocage and the nearby sea.
