A tour of the landing beaches, museums and other sites

An excellent guide to visiting the places related to D-Day in Normandy

The Normandy region, in northwestern France, is known worldwide for the Allied landing that took place there in 1944.

Today, Normandy is a place that attracts many tourists seeking to see the sites of that battle, and also fans of military historical reenactment, who hold events in various places in the region each year coinciding with the anniversary of D-Day, which began on June 6 of that year. A great connoisseur of the area is the Spanish Óscar Galanski, author of the excellent YouTube channel Guripa Troop, specialized in military history.

This channel published a complete video yesterday in which Óscar explains the places related to D-Day that are worth seeing on a 4 or 5-day trip, as well as other interesting historical sites in that area (the video is in Spanish but has English subtitles, you can activate them in the bottom bar of the player):

If you want more information, in the description of this video (click here) you have the links to other videos published by Tropa Guripa on Normandy. I encourage you to subscribe to that channel if you haven't followed it yet, and for my part I'm keeping this video, because I thought it was an excellent guide to visit Normandy.
