So that Knowledge feeds Memory

This well-preserved site, with its educational trail, helps you understand the workings of an artillery battery, the position of the Merville Battery in the Atlantic Wall, the stages of its construction, Rommel’s interest in it and the daily life of the soldiers stationed there.

Actions of the Conservatoire du Littoral

The Conservatoire du Littoral, in collaboration with Airborne Assault Normandy and the Municipality of Merville-Franceville, has preserved the authenticity of the Merville Battery site by purchasing the land.

You can now discover one of the most important places of 6 June, a historic site that has been completely preserved since the end of the war and which now extends over more than 10 hectares. In addition to a command post and about ten blockhouses, it has four formidable pillboxes whose fire could enfilade Sword beach and endanger the eastern sector of the Allied landing.
