Stp121 Barfleur

Firepower heavy bunker site protecting the port area

Stp121 site overview

What to see

The beautiful port of Barfleur on the north east coast of the Cotentin peninsula is one of the most popular tourist spots in Normandy, but few will spot the large gun bunkers which surround the area.
Situated to the south and east of the port you can find an extensive strongpoint known as Stp121 Barfleur Le Cracko.
Although most are overgrown, here you can still see the remains of two large gun casemates, a mortar bunker, flak emplacement, MG positions, Tobruks, ammo stores, personnel shelters, and a long section of anti tank wall.
The largest of the casemates - an R677 for an 88mm anti tank gun - also features an additional Tobruk for close defence of the position and observation.
