At the Stade de France, the Bataclan, in the cafes and restaurants of Paris... on Friday 13th November, terrorists killed and wounded many innocent people. And in doing so, they also aimed also to kill these places that we love, places which represent culture and a spirit of sharing.
We at WorldEventListings share the grief of the friends and families of the victims of the terrorist attacks of 13th November 2015. And we offer our unconditional support to all the cultural venues affected.
Our raison d'être has always been to share cultural information with as many people as possible. We will continue. We will win. Their failure is only a matter of time.

Description

An impressionist harbour.

Normandy is unpredictable. Via the daring architecture of the Normandy Bridge, you arrive at the port of Honfleur, a picturesque haven nestled between tall houses roofed with slate, who have watched over the port of Honfleur since the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries.

Yachts and sailboats sail the waters in summertime, and regattas take place in the old basin where five centuries ago the explorers set off to America.

A veritable open air work of art, the fishing harbour at Honfleur has inspired many. In the nineteenth century, the port of Honfleur became an artistic centre. Honfleur-born painter and precursor of impressionism Eugène Boudingathered around him the greatest artists of the day: Monet, Dubourg, Jongkind, Baudelaire and so on.

Today, the artists' easels set up near the many cafes are still part of the backdrop in Honfleur harbour.
