This is a remant of a German battery, giving a hint of the preparations made to repel the Allied invasion. Some times known as La Chaos, several of the gun emplacements are intact.

WE were able to walk around concrete monsters and see the view as it must have been seen on D-Day. I was amazed that there was still weaponry there. It would have been nice to have a little more information, but there was no admission...More

There are four of them. Three still have their guns. The bunkers are in amazing condition, all things considered. How the allies were able to succeed facing this kind of weaponry is nothing short of miraculous. Honestly, these bunkers gave me the creeps.

I was very surprised by the condition of these bunkers, there are 4 batteries, just one is damaged / dismantled, however, the remaining 3 seem almost intact.... There is also another large bunker at the cliff, just 3 minutes of walking

There are lots of gun battery sites to visit along the Normandy coast, but this is the only one that still has the original guns in situ, within almost intact emplacements. As well as the four emplacements, make sure to take the short walk up...More

These gun emplacements spaced throughout the D-Day beaches must be seen to appreciate what the advancing American, British and Canadian troops had to face as they fought and died to save Europe. Take you teens here!

This is one of a few places where you can see a bunker with preserved guns. I recommend to go there. Visited in 9/2012

Though decaying the guns added an authenticity all too lacking in some other sites. Would recommend half an hour here
