Interesting
At the tip of the Cotentin peninsula, Cherbourg-Octeville has the largest man-made harbour in the world, with several ports: marina, naval port, commercial port and fishing port. In spite of its misfortunes over the centuries, the town has preserved a rich heritage of monuments, behind its remarkable breakwater. Cherbourg also has some lovely parks, the legacy of its early botanical tradition, which was made possible by the mild climate.
