Through the Porte Océane
At the end of Foch Avenue in Le Havre is a monumental complex designed by the Le Havre Reconstruction Workshop following the bombings of the Second World War. Baptized Porte Océane (Ocean Door) in reference to the book of Édouard Herriot published in 1932, this highly symbolic decor marks the passage between the city and the sea. Its high towers stand as the city's gate and frame the main axis of Le Havre. The whole concept forms a square that seems to open onto the sea, the beach, and the marina.
