Visit of Villerville - Le Calvaire

Coastal Route


Le Calvaire de Villerville overlooks Villerville and gave reference to the sailors who went to sea. It was in 1885 that Father Heudier had the idea of ​​building the Calvary. Built in 1888, it offers a clear view of the coast. He has also been the subject of many painters such as Valère Lefebvre, Moutier, Daubigny, Butin or Mozin.
Broken in 1928 by a great storm, it was rebuilt in 1930 in the same place where it is still visible today, opposite the Parc des Graves.
