There are no words to describe it, you just flat out have to go see it for yourself. Make sure that you allocate 3-4 hours to this place to see it and experience it in full. If you plan on going to this place from a cruise ship..dont. See France by car. Thats the best way. Cruise ships bus you in and only give you about an hour to see the sights like this place and Eiffel Tower in Paris. By the way you have to pick one or the other. We rented a car in Paris, spent a week there the leisurely drove to the Normandy area and spent 4 days along the coast here. We were not rushed and we spent time at each monument. We saw the people from the cruises running up, taking a pic then running back to see the next because they had only an hour or so. Sad. If you go here make sure to take the trip a little more south and see Mont St.Michel! Just get a GPS with euro maps and GO! You only live once!
