Flanked by the “green beach”, a verdant and relaxing space, Port Chantereyne is just within a few steps from the town centre and its numerous shops, restaurants, bars etc. (Click here to see all the addresses)
This Nature stop enables you to discover, a few metres from Port Chantereyne, the Emmanuel Liais Park, a green jewel in the heart of the town. Dating from the 19th century, the parks and gardens of Cherbourg-Octeville testify to the botanic richness of the world thanks to the exotic species brought back by sailors and travellers.
Classified “remarkable garden”, the Ravalet Park in Tourlaville is a subtle mixture of English and French gardens in which nestles a splendid Renaissance château.
Amongst the streets lined with houses of blue schist, the town conceals architectural and historical treasures: the Italian-style theatre, the art museum Thomas-Henry and its collection of works by Jean-François Millet, famous painter of the Angelus and other masterpieces. The former transatlantic terminal, an Art Deco jewel, houses today the Cité de la Mer, a theme park dedicated to the human adventure under the sea.
