Monrival Quay

Touques was the last village before the estuary, which made its fame and its fortune from the XNUMXth to the XNUMXth century.
In the Middle Ages, it was recommended to dock at Touques to disembark in the Kingdom of France. Touques was very popular with the Dukes and Kings, who frequently traveled between England and Normandy and disembarked at the port to stop over at Bonneville Castle.
At its peak, the port was a shipyard, where the flagship of the 250th century Norman fleet was built. Its trade was almost entirely turned towards export (wood, salt, apples, cider and calvados) delivered to distant destinations, such as Brazil or Newfoundland. From the 300th to the end of the 1863th century, an average of XNUMX to XNUMX boats entered the port of Touques per year. He remained very active until the beginning of the XNUMXth century, until the development of Deauville and Trouville-sur-Mer, the roads and the railway, and the diversion of the river. Touques permanently lost its port in XNUMX.
