Location: Honfleur, France // Googlemaps
Next up is some photos from the old town of Honfleur! I just got finished editing the couple hundred or so photos and hopefully you can see it's old grandeur in it's images. Honfleur looks and feels old, but not in the 'constructed for tourism' way [though, since the point du normandy bridge was constructed, they haven't exactly shied away from taking in the tourist dollar]. Enjoy!
Located on the estuary of one of the principal rivers of France with a safe harbor and relatively rich hinterland, Honfleur profited from its strategic position from the start of the Hundred Years War. The towns defenses were strengthened by Charles V strengthened the town in order to protect the estuary of the Seine from attacks from the English.
