City of a Hundred Steeples
Caen is known for its historical buildings built during the reign of William the Conqueror, who was buried there, and for the Battle for Caen--heavy fighting that took place in and around Caen during the Battle of Normandy in 1944, destroying much of the city. Two hours northwest of Paris, and connected to the south of England by the Caen-(Ouistreham)-Portsmouth ferry route, Caen is located in the center of its northern region, where it is a locus of political, economic, and cultural power. The city has preserved the memory of its violent World War II history by erecting a memorial for peace. Caen is in Calvados.
