explanation: Located at Seine's estuary, Honfleur had used during 11th century as a transition harbor for Richard III between his fiefs Normandy and England but its prosperity arrived after 100 year war. In fact, from 16th century, many French adventurers such as Jacques Cartier left Honfleur to exploit America and Canada. Though, its importance has declined after the opening of Le Havre, Honfleur remains an attractive tourist spot thanks to its picturesque houses, immortalized by impressionism artists like Boudin.
