ENJOY THE SEASIDE

Le Havre has a large sandy and pebble beach, almost right in the city centre. There's a whole host of water sports on offer, and you can also take advantage of the nearby skate park and beach volleyball courts.

In summer, from April to October, take advantage of the restaurants that line the beach and offer seaside cuisine (mussels, fish, pizzas, salads, etc.).

Sainte-Adresse

VISIT SAINTE-ADRESSE

Just walk along the beach to Sainte-Adresse, a 'city within a city' of Le Havre. This former fishing village was once frequented by many painters, including Monet, Bourdin and Stevens. Having been included in their paintings, Sainte-Adresse pays tribute to them by including them in its own landscape, along the seafront, with panels and paintings retracing the town's history.

DISCOVER PERRET'S ARCHITECTURE

In 1945, Le Havre faced a serious problem. Heavily bombed during the Second World War, the town was almost entirely destroyed, with a whole population to be rehoused... One of my father's friends showed us a photograph of the ruins of the town... 10,000 buildings destroyed, 80,000 people affected, 150 hectares of ruins and ashes.

The reconstruction project was entrusted to Auguste Perret, the great specialist in reinforced concrete, known for his work on the Théatre des Champs Elysées in Paris, for example. Le Havre was transformed into a veritable field of experimentation, with the aim of rehousing people quickly, functionally and affordably! Today, the city centre is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, which hails it as "an outstanding example of post-war architecture and town planning".

Eglise Saint Joseph

SAINT JOSEPH'S CHURCH

Built in memory of the victims of the war, the concrete building is modern and atypical. And the gamble paid off! The exterior is austere and singular... The interior is just as austere, if not more so, with its theatre-like atmosphere and cinema seats! The place is a veritable shaft of light with its thousands of multicoloured stained glass windows.
