Caen is a city in the Calvados region of Normandy in Northern France. It has two fine abbeys and a castle constructed by William the Conquerer (Guillaume Le Conquerant in French), who conquered the Kingdom of England at the Battle of Hastings in 1066. Caen was occupied by German troops during World War II, but was liberated by British and Canadian forces. North of Caen, at Ouistreham, a ferry terminal has regular passenger services to Portsmouth, Caens twin town in the United Kingdom.
