The destination of love

In Caen la mer, there is love in the air ! And with these anecdotes, you will not say otherwise:

  • The most beautiful wedding hall in France is in Caen, in the heart of the Men abbey which houses the Town Hall.
  • The frank and sincere love story between William the Conqueror and his wife Mathilde of Flanders who gave birth to two magnificent abbeys: the Men abbey and the Ladies abbey. More recently, in 2022, was inaugurated the only equestrian statue in the world representing a couple: this royal couple so dear to the city of Caen.
  • Edith Piaf’s hymn to love still resonates in the Vaugueux district of Caen where her grandparents had a cafe in the last century. But also at the Villa Louis in Lion-sur-mer where the Môme stayed.
  • Work of art such as « Le Mariage de la Vierge » (1504) or the collections of the author Marguerite Duras (1939-1999) are housed in the museum of fine arts of Caen and the IMEC – Ardenne abbey, respectively.
  • Don’t forget that Caen is a Renaissance city, a period where sensuality and eroticism were not taboos. Many naughty sculptures are present throughout the city. Just look up.
