City logo of 76400 Fecamp, Alabaster Coast, Seine-Maritime, Normandy

The presence on the Cauchois Coast of the town of Fecamp is attested from 875 under the name "super fluvium fiscannum". It will become "Fiscannus" from 990, then slowly drift towards the current appellation.
The existence of Fecamp is linked to two important historical parameters : fishing to feed men and the Viking invasions. But these are far from being the only milestones in the history of this city.

Henri IV would have said of the Notre-Dame church of Caudebec-en-Caux: "It is the most beautiful chapel of my kingdom"

Caudebec-en-Caux is located on the right bank of the Seine, roughly halfway by land between Le Havre and Rouen. Contrary to what its name indicates, it is not located in the Pays-de-Caux.

France and its (maritime) coasts

With the second Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) in the world, France is a de facto maritime power. But do you know its coasts ? When it comes to geography, nothing beats a map, right ?

This label is awarded for a period of 6 years, after the opinion of the Superior Commission of Sites, Perspectives and Landscapes, and the National Network of the "Grands Sites de France"

This label belongs to the French State, which deposited it with the INPI in 2003.

INPI is the French equivalent of the USPTO in the USA or the IPO in UK.

The attribution of the label is subordinated to the implementation of a project of preservation, management and development of the site, responding to the principles of sustainable development.
