This tiny churchJune the 6th 1944 this tiny church with 50+ inhabitants suddenly found itself in the middle of the invasion battle, the Church was turned into the field hospital with the pews acting as hospital beds...80 soldiers were treated here along with a local child. The blood from the wounded can still be seen to this day on the pews.
The Mayor single handed has raised 42,000€ to save the bell tower another 8,000€ is desperately needed to get the work done...so if you are heading to visit Utah Beach stop off and look at this little gem of a church which is 1,000 years old & perhaps pop a few € in the box!
