“Well worth a visit.”
Reviewed 15 November 2013

The French are particularly proud to commemorate the fallen soldiers of the Allied invasion. Sadly we visited the area in November 11th, Armistice day when many/most business are closed as a mark of respect to the soldiers of the first world war.

“See the stained glass”
Reviewed 1 November 2013

The only reason to go into the church is to view the amazing stained glass. The detail is incredible and really highlights the pride/gratitude the people of Normandy have for the airborne troops and other allied forces.

“Wonderful Tour & Story”
Reviewed 23 October 2013

This place is a perfect stop with the story of the paratrooper landing. There is also a very informative museum that houses a lot of artifacts from the soldiers.

“Quaint church”
Reviewed 15 October 2013

Show much respect for sacrifices made in the war by Americans. They keep fresh parachute "silk" on the paratrouper statue on roof.

“Beautiful church D- day Area”
Reviewed 28 September 2013

This is the famous church where the paratrooper landed on the steeple and was hanging there for hours. They shot him in the foot and he pretended to be dead until he was rescued. Very pretty church with lots of history. You can actually still see a mock maniquin with a parachute where he landed.
