A million Canadians fought to end World War II. The Canadians landed on Juno Beach, a beach about ten miles long stretching from Courseulles-sur-Mer to Saint-Aubin-sur-Mer, in Normandy.
For Canadians, it was about liberty from barbaric Nazi domination and for some, a return to roots in Normandy, like the North Shore Regiment that liberated Saint-Aubin-sur-Mer counting one fifth of Acadians among their troops.
The Juno Beach Centre is an informative place of remembrance dedicated to the Canadians who fought and lost their lives on the landing beaches. At the centre, Canadian guides tell the story of their forefathers during the Second World War.
The Minister of Canadian Heritage himself declared Juno Beach as a site of national importance.
This magnificent Renaissance residence has belonged to the same family for 800 years. The rooms on the ground floor house a fine collection of antique furniture and paintings. The chapel dates from the 13th and 16th centuries. Two of the most unique aspects of the château de Fontaine-Henry are its very high roofs and its richly sculpted facade.
A tea room and an antique games room are a treat to enjoy after your guided tour, which is available in several languages.
