Cliffs of Étretat
The dramatic cliffs of Étretat, sculpted by wind and water into extraordinary shapes, were a favorite subject of the Impressionists. Maupassant, an author from Normandy, noted that a great ship with sails unfurled could pass through one of the arches. Marked trails guide hikers on walks along the cliffs, which are a habitat for arctic fulmars and peregrine falcons. Also worth seeing is the half-timbered market hall.
