Between the Massif Armoricain and the Bassin Parisien
Located on the north-eastern borders of the Massif Armoricain, Norman Switzerland is bordered by the Virois Bocage, the Mortainais, and the Domfrontais to the west. To the east and north, it adjoins the Caen plain and the Falaise and Argentan countrysides of the sedimentary geological ensemble of the Bassin Parisien.
