Description

A seaside resort with its Thalasso and casino dating back to the end of the 19th century, Luc-sur-Mer is the ideal place to come and recharge your batteries. Stroll to the end of the pier to enjoy the view of the coast. During your walk, you will be surprised by an unusual discovery as you enter the Municipal Park. You will come face to face with a 19-metre long whale skeleton that was washed up on the beach in 1885. You will also walk along the valley of La Capricieuse by taking the pedestrian path, a pleasant and bucolic walk.

In season, historical guided tours are regularly offered. The programme is available at the tourist office.

Place du Petit Enfer

Luc-sur-Mer was one of the parishes obliged to establish a Protestant cemetery. It was established halfway between the village and the seaside. After the revocation of the Edict of Nantes, this place where heretics were buried was nicknamed the "Petit Enfer". It was already called "Enfer" because the pestiferous people who died during the epidemics had already been buried there.

La jetée des pêcheurs

On the "East" side, the fishermen's jetty, extending the breach of the marsh, was imported from the outer harbour of Ouistreham in 1971. It has become a must for anglers.

Chapelle Bonne Espérance

Also known as "Chapel of the bathers", it was built near the beach by the Abbot Vengeon around 1860 because the church was too far away for the inhabitants of the seaside.

The Vallon de la Capricieuse

Stretching over 33 hectares, from Douvres-la-Délivrande to the seafront at Luc-sur-Mer, the Capricieuse valley has a greenway that follows the Capricieuse stream A real green artery by the sea, this accessible walk, 2.5 kilometres long (5 kilometres round trip), follows the stream of the Capricieuse. We invite you to follow this peacefully flowing stream. During this walk, meet the friendly inhabitants of the Capricieuse. Sheep, horses and donkeys welcome you and approach you as you pass. As you pass by the shared orchard, enjoy the smell of the fruit trees in bloom. Once you reach the end of the valley, you arrive at the waterfront. This greenway follows the former route of the railway line linking Caen to Courseulles-sur-Mer from 1875 to 1950.

Saint-Quentin Church

For the construction of the Saint-Quentin church in 1873, a major project of the Abbot Vengeon, the Romanesque church that had been erected in the 17th century was destroyed. The bell tower is the only vestige of it. This tower was accessed from the inside of the church nave through a small door that is still visible today. Inside the church is a double-sided cross with a base dated 1662 but which seems to date from the Renaissance. This cross is classified.

The manor house "Hüe de Caligny"

Built in the 16th century by the Hüe de Caligny family, the manor house, nicknamed "The Castle", stood near the Romanesque church, on the supposed site of an old castle. Abandoned and then destroyed at the beginning of the 19th century, there are still some remains of it today, including the Monument Portail. The coat of arms on the pediment was allegedly hammered during the Revolution.

The porch of the Carmelite court

In the municipality of Luc-sur-Mer, which belonged to the abbeys, there were buildings characterized by double entrance gates, one large for carts and one small for horsemen and pedestrians. Only one of these verandas remains: it is located on Rue de l'Abbé Vengeon and overlooks the courtyard of the Carmelites.
