  • For lovers of military history, the real one, this place is a must see. German naval artillery is the backdrop to a pleasant walk. The Council's visit with a guide who will tell you everything in detail. Modicissimi prices, parking and lots and lots of history. Must see for anyone visiting the Normandy beaches.

  • I was there few days ago and it was closed. I was disappointed. 2 Stars because we had a nice picnic on the top of a bunker :)
  • Very well maintained and hugely informative

  • Couldn't see everything due to holidays, but parts which I did see were impressive.
