Some batteries
Longues sur Mer
l Azeville

Around the beaches are the remains of batteries which were supposed to cover the beaches or put enemy vessels under fire. Here are a couple of those that we visited..

The Battery of Longues-sur-Mer. This area was also used when they shot the film, "The Longest Day"..
The command bunker, located near the sea.
