What's Caen Like?
The Men's Abbey, or L'Abbaye-aux-Hommes, is the result of William the Conqueror. He had this and the L'Abbaye-aux-Dames, the Ladies Abbey, built because he wanted to sway the Catholic church to allow his marriage to Matilda of Flanders. It worked, and now they are both buried in their respective abbeys. Opt for the guided tours in the abbeys and you will find them knowledgeable and passionate about their town's place in history. La Colline aux Oiseaux was once a rubbish dump. The forward-thinking city of Caen turned what could have been an eyesore into a lovely landscape of gardens as only the French can do. There is also a petting zoo and maze that the kids will love. One of the most popular attractions is the Memorial of Caen, which houses the history of the first and second world wars. Opt for the headphones and give yourself plenty of time to view the displays. For many this is a very moving experience and Caen has done an excellent job at bringing history to life. Maisons a Pans de Bois are timber-framed houses built in the 1500s. It is amazing to think that they are still standing after the majority of the city was razed during bombing raids.
