AEN can be seen on the horizon of its surrounding plain. This, the City of the Dukes of Normandy, can be associated three colours: the blue of its marina, the green of its "Prairie", floral parks and gardens and the white of the stone, which has sculpted the history of the city for more than 9 centuries.
The city's architectural heritage is exceptional. Prestigious evidence of the age of William the Conqueror, the Women's Abbey, Men's Abbey:and castle may be added to the countless religious edifices, private residences, picturesque areas and museums, the Museum of Normandy and the Fine Arts Museum, the latter famous for its collection of Italian, Flemish and French paintings.
The most recent of the city's museums, the Memorial, is unique. It is a symbol of Peace.
