Granville Travel guide
Granville : Michelin's recommendations
Monte Carlo is not alone in having its imposing rock; Granville shares this distinction and is therefore nicknamed the “Monaco of the north”. Life here is centred upon the ports (commercial, fishing and pleasure craft). A thalassotherapy centre and seaside resort, Granville has a party atmosphere, best seen during its renowned annual carnival. After the tour of the ramparts (town and coast views), visit the Christian Dior Museum, located in the childhood home of the great couturier, Villa Les Rhumbs.
