A city of 173,000 in the Seine-Maritime region of Normandy, Le Havre fuses its maritime history as a major port with a future-facing spirit of modernism which fuelled its post-WWII regeneration. Practically flattened by bombing in the war, it was rebuilt under the visionary eye of ground-breaking Belgian architect Auguste Perret and today it’s a UNESCO World Heritage Site blessed by buildings designed by the likes of Jean Nouvel and Reichen and Robert. The striking MuMa (Museum of Modern Art) is another cultural highlight, and overall this is a bright, expansive city infused with a positive ambience.

Guide to Le Havre

Originally called Franciscopolis, Le Havre was founded in 1517 by King Francis I, subsequently named Le Havre de Grâce ‘Harbour of Grace’, then adopted the less poetic, but simpler ‘le Havre’. As you would expect, its history and prosperity are inseparable from its port, and its regeneration after devastation suffered during WWII is awe-inspiring. Today it’s a cool contemporary city which hasn’t forgotten its historic roots.
