Bricquebec / St-Sauveur-le-Vicomte

[ Cycle routes Tour de Manche ] [ Cherbourg > Carentan ]
  • 13.6 km
  • famille Level Family

Dating back to the Vikings, Bricquebec’s history is matched by its monuments: the Abbey Notre-Dame-de-Grâce and the ruined castle are well worth visiting before setting off to St Sauveur le Vicomte – which itself has its own 10th century Abbey, and a museum dedicated to locally-born writer Jules Barbey d’Aurevilly.

Itinerary

Make your way through the village of Briquebec – it can be crossed on a safe and pleasant greenway - then descend gently on the former ‘little train’ track towards St. Sauveur.  Numerous picnic areas on the route.  Take extra care north of St. Sauveur when crossing the RD 900 (poor visibility).

Bricquebec, the fortress

 

An area rich in Art and History
 
This area is a living history book: at Bricquebec, the fortress has been rebuilt and refortified many times; the Château de Saint-Sauveur-le-Vicomte is an ancient abbey and castle whose walls were breached by cannon during a siege in 1374 – one of the first successful uses of guns against city walls.
