History is alive at the battery. A piece of the Atlantic Sea Wall still intact. Walking amongst the guns in the battery takes you to a period in time. Look to the sea (barely visible from the battery) and imagine yourself on the site on...More

The Longues Battery is a very impressive, virtually intact, German coastal gun battery overlooking the Seine between Omaha Beach, Port-en-Bessin and Arromanches.

This was an amazing place to visit. 4 bunkers, 3 guns, mostly intact, but you can see the damage that was sustained. Eerily creepy, historically amazing.

This is a remant of a German battery, giving a hint of the preparations made to repel the Allied invasion. Some times known as La Chaos, several of the gun emplacements are intact.

There are four of them. Three still have their guns. The bunkers are in amazing condition, all things considered. How the allies were able to succeed facing this kind of weaponry is nothing short of miraculous. Honestly, these bunkers gave me the creeps.
