Discover Granville Terre & Mer

For more than four centuries, Granville lived to the rhythm of the fishing campaigns to the Banks of Newfoundland and Saint-Miquelon. Resolutely turned towards the sea, it was also a corsair city whose sailors were among the most valiant of their time.

At the end of the 19th century, the sea baths attracted a large number of customers, the city being linked to Paris by the railway since 1870. Numerous Belle Epoque style villas were then built along the coast and mark a new facet of Granville’s personality: a seaside town of character.
