Aire De La Baie

Aire De La Baie, Normandy

This ‘Aire1 (basically the omnipresent French version of the woefully sparse English ‘services’) , is set on a barracks/defense post used in the Second World War – captured by the allies as they retook Europe from the Germans. You can understand from this view why it was such a key position!

As a special treat, I’ve uploaded this in an ultra-high resolution, which can be seen by clicking on the image – you can then use your browser tools to zoom in and scroll about. You can also see a map below:
