About Caen

In October 2021, the 24th ESO Stroke Summer School will take place in Normandy, in the city of Caen.

Caen is located 15 kilometers inland from the English Channel, 200 kilometers north-west of Paris, and connected to the south of England by the Caen-(Ouistreham)-Portsmouth ferry route. Located a few miles from the coast, the landing beaches, the bustling resorts of Deauville and Cabourg, Norman Switzerland and Pays d'Auge, Caen is often considered the archetype of Normandy.

Caen is known for its historical buildings built during the reign of William the Conqueror, who was buried there, and for the Battle for Caen—heavy fighting that took place in and around Caen during the Battle of Normandy in 1944, destroying much of the city. The city has now preserved the memory by erecting a memorial and a museum dedicated to peace, the Mémorial de Caen.
