Facts on Haute-Normandie Province of France

The capital of Normandy is Rouen, known for its cathedral, which is the highest in France, plus being the local capital, Rouen is historically important for many other fine churches and buildings.

Haute-Normandie is bounded by the régions of Picardy (Picardie) and Île-de-France to the east, Centre to the south, and Basse-Normandie to the west and the English Channel lies to the north.

Apart from Rouen's, other major towns include Évreux, and St-Saëns and the ports include the Le Havre, Dieppe, and Fécamp.

The area is fertile and has many beech forests, with industries including dairy farming, fishing, petrochemical, paper, and car manufacture.

The river Seine divides the region in two, flowing from the southeast to the northwest near Le Havre.

The region is also twinned with the London Borough of Redbridge in the United Kingdom.
