Description  
Barfleur is a small town on the North-West coast of France in Normandy. In the Middle-Ages, it was one of the chief ports of embarkation for England from France, including the Norman Departure in 1066 to invade England and the subsequent Battle of Hastings and in 1194, Richard I of England departed from Barfleur on his return following his captivity by Henry VI, Holy Roman Emperor. It is fair to say that this little town on the cost has a very strong history.
