Cap Fagnet, situated 110 meters above sea level, is the highest point of the Alabaster Coast. And yes higher than Etretat !
On the heights of Fécamp, Cap Fagnet offers an impressive panorama on the city, the sea and the white cliffs. We discover a sea and a sky with changing hues and moods, which have always inspired painters and writers. This high point was also a high historical and strategic place, sometimes Gallic fortress, sometimes stronghold of the Atlantic Wall.
Above the Cape, other “doors” open to you: the “Hole in the Dog”, The “Door to the King” and the “Door to the Queen”.
With its rich biodiversity, Cap Fagnet is part of the European Natura 2000 network and is home to an ornithological reserve and a particular coastal flora.
Did you know?
From the top of Cap Fagnet, you can see Yport and in the distance, when the weather permits, the cliffs upstream from Etretat!
