Situated in Normandy, just a stone?s throw from the northern coast of France, lies the commune of Troarn. Troarn is a small commune, 15km east of Caen, that is home to the abbey Roger de Montgomery ? an abbey in the centre of the town that was built in 1059. Because of its size, many visitors to Troarn call here as part of a visit to the larger Normandy region. This means that many visitors hire a car in Troarn and explore this part of northern France.
