Welcome introduction

Once upon a time Caen, capital of Normandy…

Though Caen is a small size city (with only 115 000 inhabitants and about 400 000 with the suburbs), its cultural and richness and diversity is explained by its rich history. Heirs to the Vikings, the Norman dukes reached out as far as the Kingdom of Sicily firmly establishing themselves as powerful rulers. From the year 1050 onwards, it was one of their most famous representatives, William the Conqueror, who was to change Caen's destiny forever.

In atonement for his marriage to his cousin, Matilda of Flanders, Duke William founded two abbeys. One is dedicated to Women, the Ladies' abbey consecrated to the Holy Trinity ; the other, the Men's Abbey is dedicated to Saint-Etienne. Around the same time, he began the construction of the ducal castle. In 1060, William, Duke of Normandy, set out to conquer the British Isles. After the Battle of Hastings, he was crowned King of England.

From the Renaissance to the Enlightenment, Caen expanded in times of Peace, building its urban image ; private Italian-style mansions, Saint-Sauveur square and the convent buildings of the two abbeys. In the wake of the poet, François de Malherbe, the city boasted an intense intellectual railroad and canal linking Caen to the sea in 1857.

On June 6th 1944, Caen set its mark on the world stage with the Normandy Landings. From its ashes, the city grew to prove the values of peace, solidarity and human rights, so well reflected today in Caen Memorial Museum.

In fact, from western Normandy with the Mont Saint Michel to the eastern Deauville, two worldwide famous Normandy attractions, the whole Normandy region is rich of history, monuments, culture, let alone its legendary gastronomy.

Come to Caen and see for yourself! Join us for good science, good time, and good food.

Looking forward to welcoming you in Caen,
