The Michelin Guide's review
Normandy Bridge, 2,141m/7,000ft long, represented a milestone in 1995 because it set the record for the longest cable-stayed bridge. This steel and concrete mass, which defies the laws of gravity, has a surprisingly light structure but is capable of withstanding winds of up to 440kph/270mph. A sophisticated lighting system, designed by Yann Kersalé, called Rhapsody in Blue and White, turns the construction into an amazing sight every night. Cruises make it possible to admire the bridge from below.
