Remains Mulberry Harbour, Arromanches-les-Bains
(4.8/5 based on 650+ reviews on the web)
Visit Remains Mulberry Harbour to see what's left of an engineering marvel. A Mulberry harbor was a portable, temporary harbor for rapidly offloading cargo--men, vehicles, and supplies--onto the beaches during the Allied invasion of Normandy. Designed by the British and built in England, the harbors featured breakwaters, piers, roadways, and more. Come here for an appreciation for the effort it took just to supply the troops.
