Cherbourg-en-Cotentin – Host Port
Stopover Port of Tour des Ports de la Manche
Cherbourg-en-Cotentin is full of colour: the changing colours of the sea, those of boats at port or the sails out to sea, the colours of the produce on the market stands, the plants and flowers of the Emmanuel Liais garden, the paintings in the Thomas Henri museum and not forgetting the fish and jellyfish in the Cité de la Mer aquarium.
A great example of Art Déco architecture, the Transatlantic Terminal welcomed the Titanic on its last stop in Europe. Now the building houses a museum: La Cité de la Mer, dedicated to man’s adventure under the sea. The aquarium includes an abyssal tank, fun spaces and the Redoutable submarine.
