Argentan

Argentan is one of the historic centres of Normandy lace-making. Point d'Argentan is still made there today by the nuns of Argentan's Benedictine abbey. It is a tranquil, small country town, situated on a bank of the River Orne. Like many other towns in the region, Argentan took its share of the damage created by the battle for Normandy in 1944. Argentan has a beautiful church and large shopping area with many boutiques and interesting shops, as well as large supermarkets and out of town shopping warehouses. There is a large market on Fridays. The French painter Fernand Léger (1881-1955), one of the original cubists, was born in Argentan.

Normandy

Normandy gets its name from the Viking Norsemen who sailed up the River Seine in the 9th century and colonized the area, making Rouen their capital. Normandy has large ports with important transatlantic trade, whilst inland it is overwhelmingly agricultural. The image of Normandy is one of a lush, tranquil, pastoral region of apple orchards, contented cattle, Calvados and Camembert. There are ancient picturesque ports such as Honfleur to visit, seaside resorts with elegant promenades, splendid centuries-old half-timbered manor houses lining quiet countryside lanes and extrordinary Romanesque and Gothic architectural treasures.
