La Pernelle Things to Do
The church on the hill
Also close to the view point is the church of La Pernelle. From here one enjoys a spectacular view along the Normandian coastline towards the lighthouse at Gatteville, along the little harbours of Barfleur and Saint-Vaast-la-Hogue on one side. Towards the other side one enjoys the fields, acres and small forests of Val de Saire. Southwards the view reaches - with clear weather - as far as the D-day landing beaches of Utah.
The church itself is simple in exterior and the interior is beautifully decorated like most Catholic churches.
A little secret of holy sanctuary
When one visits the view point of La Pernelle, one also discovers the little grotto (cave) on the hill with a small sanctuary for our dear lady, the virgin Mary. She is watching over the Normandian coast, the fields and acres and above all the people that live here. It's quite a wonderful place that brings silence and peacefulness over every visitor. definately the best place to just say a prayer about anything that goes on in your heart or mind.
