This picturesque port is undoubtedly the high point on a visit to the Norman town of Honfleur. It was remodelled by Duquesne in the year 1681 under orders from Colbert. This port has a lot to offer to the traveller in terms of visual as well as culinary treats. Quai Saint-Etienne to the south has large stone houses whereas Quai Sainte Catherine has high, narrow wooden houses. This unusual ensemble provides the perfect backdrop to the bobbing yachts harboured here.

The Lieutenance is an eighteenth century building at the entrance of the old harbour. The must-do’s are:

  • A leisurely stroll through the cobblestone streets.
  • Ascrumptious meal at the roof top cafes.
  • Ride the carrousel or the ferris wheel.

This quaint town is sure to offer you visual as well as culinary delights and transports you back in time.
