Porte d’Amont cliff, Étretat (Haute-Normandie, France)


Étretat is a tourist and farming town situated about 32 km (20 mi) northeast of Le Havre, most known for its cliffs, including three natural arches and the pointed “needle”. Two of the three famous arches seen from the town are the Porte d’Aval, and the Porte d’Amont. The Manneporte is the third and the biggest one which cannot be seen from the town. These cliffs and the associated resort beach attracted artists including Eugène Boudina, Gustave Courbet and Claude Monet.
