Trouville-sur-Mer is a city steeped in history where culture is good. Discovered in 1825 by the Parisian painter Charles Mozin, it is the oldest seaside resort in Normandy.
Immediately seduced by the small fishing village, Charles Mozin reproduced the magnificent landscapes that surrounded it on canvas and, on his return to Paris, made it famous. With the birth of sea bathing and the development of the railway, the resort attracts a crowd of tourists and artists. Trouville-sur-Mer then becomes a must-visit resort.
The years have passed and the city has developed but it has retained its soul of a small fishing port and still charms visitors.
A rich cultural past still clearly visible and waiting to be discovered!
