Nestling in the heart of Normandy, where the river flows across the countryside the Eure turns aside from beaten paths and reveals its treasures…
From Claude Monet to Alain Passard, from Wax Tailor to Jacques Garcia, the talents are numerous, and they make the Eure famous beyond its borders.
It is also home to major industries. You may not have known this, but if Europe regularly reaches the stars, it’s because the very first French rockets were designed and manufactured in Vernon.
That process continues today, and it is in the Eure that the engines for the Ariane rocket are designed and tested.
And we haven’t yet mentioned the extraordinary vitality of its cattle breeding and agriculture. The Department has a rich and fecund soil, and abundant dairy and linen production.
From the Seine valley to the Milky Way, the Eure does indeed leave its mark on the world.
