Despite its more than 50,000 inhabitants, the city has managed to preserve its character, which is a mix of nature, modernity and vitality.
Evreux is the capital of the administrative department of Eure and it is still quite close to Paris, but the air is different there...
It is definitely Normandy's capital, with its cows peacefully grazing in the valleys, its cheeses from Auge, and its very particular light which has so inspired painters.
It also bears witness to the tragic destruction of almost all of the city by the Second World War bombings. Rebuilt, it has preserved some wonderful vestiges of its past, including the last Norman belltower.
