The third tourist site in Lower Normandy
Listed as a Historical Monument and the flagship of the national stud farms, the Haras National du Pin is the third tourist site in Lower Normandy after Mont-Saint-Michel and Caen Memorial. The French language assigned a specific term to places where horses were bred as early as the Middle Ages.
