We started our visit to Granville by driving to the top of the cliffs. There is a good car park from where you get a great view of the harbour.It is the reason the Germans build the bunkers up here in WWll.The harbour has a marina for over a 1000 berths and there is a fleet of trawlers here.It is a popular place for shellfish the town has stalls and shops selling them everywhere. The town has several museums including the Christian Dior museum Rue d Estoutville
