Manche

Named after the English Channel into which it extends, Manche is the most westerly department of Lower Normandy. The word manche in French means sleeve, and La Manche is the French name for the English Channel, which is said to be because of its sleeve-like shape. A predominantly rural department, the area surrounding St-Lô is the horse-breeding capital of the country. Manche includes the Cotentin peninsula with the off-shore Channel Island of Chaussey to the west.

CAPITAL: ST-LÔ Coutances was the first capital of Manche and became the capital once more when St-Lô was virtually destroyed during the Battle of Normandy in World War II. Originally called Briovère (meaning ‘the bridge on the River Vire’ in Gaulish), St-Lô began as a fortified settlement, and once rebuilt, resumed its role as capital.
