The Cathedral of Coutances

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.
