Normandie, positioned along the English Channel on the northern coast of France, is made up of two regions, Basse-Normandie and Haute-Normandie.
Basse Normandy includes the departments of Calvados, Manche and Orne, with the city of Caen as its capital. Haute Normandy includes the departments of Eure and Seine-Maritime, with the city of Rouen as its capital.
The region is most famous for its beaches, as some of them were the main focal points during the D-Day landings of World War II in June of 1944. Today, the overall region's economy revolves around agricultural, with cattle and dairy farming the major industries.
