Things to do: sightseeing
Colleville-Montgomery is a commune in the Calvados department in the Basse-Normandie region in northern France. It was known as Colleville-sur-Orne until June 13, 1946, to distinguish it from another town in the department, also in a coastal location, Colleville-sur-Mer. The new name honoured the British commander Sir Bernard Montgomery who commanded the invasion of Normandy on June 6, 1944. There are two towns, Calvados Sainte-Foy-de-Montgomery and Saint-Germain-de- Montgomery in the area, but they are named for Montgomery's family ancestors. They were part of William the Conqueror's invading army in 1066 and settled in England.Sights The ChurchBuilt by Saint-Vigor, Bishop of the city of Bayeux, during the 11th and 12th centuries, it has two choirs and a Romanesque nave.The first bay consists in barrel vaults. The other vaults are more recent, built at the same time as the arches which lead to the second choir, from the eighteenth century.The side tower from the twelfth century is of Romanesque design, with a terrace on top surrounded by a parapet, and contains three bells. The bell tower, partially destroyed during the liberation of the area, was reconstructed.
