Caen City Info

Caen Hotels

Caen france is a city and a commune of northwestern France. It is the administrative capital of the Calvados département, and the capital of the Lower Normandy région. caen has a population totaling around 200,000. On the caen map the people are called Caennais. caen france is 10 km away from the English Channel. A canal was built under Napoleon III and runs parallel to the river Orne to link caen to the sea at all times. The canal reaches the English Channel at Ouistreham. A lock prevents the canal from withstanding the effects of the tide and permits large ships to navigate up the canal to Caen's freshwater harbours. caen is built in an area of high humidity. The Orne flows through caen france, as well as many small rivers known as les Odons. But most of the caen rivers have been buried under the city to improve urban hygiene.

Approaches to the city caen france are along thunderous dual carriageways through industrial suburbs, which is now developing once again after an arrival of high-tech newcomers.
