Take a tour of French Village of Barfleur in Barfleur, France – part of the World’s Greatest Attractions travel video series by GeoBeats.
One of the most historically significant towns in Normandy is the seaside town of Barfleur. For many years, this was one of the most prominent port towns in northern France.
Today, Barfleur is primarily a fishing town, but is also a beautiful place to visit. It has rocky shores, sandy beaches, and excellent views of the Atlantic, especially at sunset. The slightly austere yet peaceful structures of this town mostly date from the town’s most prominent era, the 17th and 18th centuries.
In addition to its stunning surroundings, Barfleur itself is a charming place with a great sense of history.
