Arromanches Mulberry Port - WWII historical testimony
- Arromanches sur Mer is known for its artificial port called “Mulberry” that was constructed during the second world war in 8 days. It reaches 5 miles and was finished just before the Normandy invasion. At that time, it was a technical prowess to be able to build a deep water port in such a short timeframe. It is a proof of the industrial and technological exploit of the war.
- Enormous blocks of cement were dragged from England to let them drop near Arromanches so the big war boats could moor and discharge the hundreds of soldiers and war vehicles and weapons it had on their board on the D day.
Arromanches 360° movie theater
More recently, an important attraction that we recommend is the 360° movie theater called Arromanches 360, which projects a movie made up of archives about the invasion of Normandy. It is not just a documentary, it is a moving and intense experience so the spectator deeply feels what happened. The dramatic scenes of the Normandy landings on the D day will plunge you right at its heart.
