Caen, the capital city of Lower Normandy (Basse Normandie), offers many attractions for visitors, ranging from the award winning Caen Memorial, a museum dedicated to the history of the 20th century from the Second World War to the present day, to Chateau Ducal, built by William the Conqueror in 1060 and one of the largest fortified enclosures in Europe.
