The city centre and the Bassin du Commence in Le Havre.

Founded in 1517, Le Havre is a seaport located on the Normandy coast 50min from Castel Camping Le Brévedent. Its history is closely linked to trade and industry. Unfortunately, the city was largely destroyed during the Second World War, but it was rebuilt according to the plans of the architect Auguste Perret, which makes it today a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The reconstruction has given the city a unique character with its modernist architecture.
