Bénédiction de la Mer – August 10th – 11th 2013

Since 1908, Port-en-Bessin-Huppain has paid its respects to the sailors lost at sea with the “Bénédiction de la Mer”. Very attached to this  tradition, the local community  prepares for this festival for several months. As well as its religious dimension, it’s also a great celebration, with concerts, events and fireworks… during the Bénédiction de la Mer, all the town and all its trawlers are covered in paper roses of all colours…
