TROUVILLE - Normandy

When I was on Holidays in Normandy, we also visited Trouville-sur-Mer, commonly referred to as Trouville, it is a commune in the Calvados department in Normandy. 




The whole coast became a historical place because here ended WW II. On June 6, world leaders gathered in Normandy to mark the 70th anniversary of D-Day - June 6 1944 (more about it here)



Today Trouville is a well liked town to spend holidays. Above is the market place



and I am standing there with Charlie before we had a drink after having walked through the little town.


The covered market hall where Saturday's a quite big market takes place


The old covered Fish Market, is classified as a historic monument since 1922





There also was a beautiful fountain in the middle of the place.

The tour of the town was quickly done as it seemed very small. The beach looked the same like in Houlgate where we stayed and the houses and the casino too. Therefore I haven't taken many pictures.

The town also seemed rather empty, holiday season hadn't begun yet and lots of shops and restaurants were closed. It's probably better to go in this area from June on, as it also was rather cold and rainy.
