Caen is located in the Calvados department and is the capital of the Basse-Normandie region. It is located 15 km inland from the English Channel. The river Orne flows through the city, and a canal that is parallel to the Orne was built during the reign of Napoleon III to be able to link the city to the sea at all times. The canal reaches the English Channel at Ouistreham. A lock enables the canal to withstand the effects of the tide and permits large ships to navigate up the canal to Caen's freshwater harbours. Caen is known for its historical buildings built during the reign of William the Conqueror, who was buried here.
