Classic

You'll leave by coach with your tour guide to discover Le Havre, a major French port city on the English Channel. The city's reconstruction work, designed by Auguste Perret after its widespread destruction during World War II, has been lauded to the extent that it is now listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. This distinction has brought Le Havre's long-disparaged architectural characteristics into a new spotlight. Now considered exceptional for its unity and integrity, the modern layout combines historical structures with newer visions of urban planning and building technologies. Many consider it a remarkable example of post-war architecture and planning based on the systematic adoption of modular frames and the novel use of precast concrete.
We can't talk about the city's architecture without mentioning its oldest building, Graville Abbey. The church built by Guillaume Malet de Graville is a Norman Romanesque masterpiece. Beautifully landscaped terraced gardens surround the abbey and offer a superb view of the estuary below.
