More correctly known as Arromanches-les-Bains, this coastal town is found in the Calvados department of Lower Normandy. Arromanches is a pleasant seaside town which is also famous for the part it played in the D-day landings on June 6 Arromanches was in the forefront of the Normandy landings after its beach, designated Gold Beach during the operations, was one of the beaches selected to receive the man-made landing harbours, known as the Mulberry Harbours, during the invasion of France that would lead to the end of the Second World War. The harbours were designed such that they could be floated across the English Channel to act as a temporary harbour for the D-Day Landings.
