The Merville artillery battery, one of the major fortifications that comprised the Atlantic Wall, was one of the key Allied targets during the Normandy Landings.

The artillery battery was neutralised by the 9th British Parachute Battalion on the 7th of June 1944.

Within a preserved site covering several hectares, the association de la Batterie de Merville now offers an educational tour, including a visit of 4 bunkers transformed into museographical displays and a legendary plane that participated in the Normandy Landings.

Discover how the battery was neutralised thanks to a son et lumière show in casemate n°1, preserved to this very day in the same state as it was on the morning of the 6th of June 1944. Every 20 minutes, sounds, smells and lighting effects plunge you into the atmosphere of the attack on the Merville battery.
