A brief stop on our way to Bayeux.
Isigny-sur-Mer is situated in the fertile grassland region known as the Baie des Veys. Isigny is an important centre of the dairy industry. The town is famous for its AOC butter and cream, as well as for the production of Mimolette, Pont-l'Évêque, Camembert, and Trésor d'Isigny cheeses, among others, made by the Isigny Sainte-Mère co-operative.
Isigny was more than 60% destroyed during two bombing raids on 8th June 1944 and since been almost entirely rebuilt.
