Il se trouve au « Bout du Monde » juste en face de l'île anglo-normande Aurigny. C'est également à Goury que l'on trouve la station de sauvetage en mer et son canot le « Mona Rigolet », souvent de sortie pour secourir des navires pris dans le Raz Blanchard, l'un des courants les plus forts au monde…

Le phare, ancré dans la mer tumultueuse, se dresse à 48m au dessus des flots et guide les marins au passage du Raz Blanchard. A l’horizon, se profile l’île anglo-normande d’Aurigny (Alderney). Sans oublier la station de sauvetage en mer.

“Entre ciel, mer, ajoncs et genêts, la balade jusqu'à la pointe du Roc est juste magnifique. On part de la haute ville puis après un petit dénivelé, on arrive au phare de Granville. On a juste l'impression d'être au bout du monde, avec une vue splendide sur les iles Chausey et autres iles bretonnes. Les couchers de soleil sont à couper le souffle... On a en prime un chuchotement de l'Histoire car des bunkers sont encore là pour témoigner de la seconde guerre mondiale.”

Museum
“The moulin is ideally located central to many historical and other delights. Two abbeys worth visiting are l’abbaye de Hambye and l’abbaye de la Lucerne. L’Abbaye de Hambye is a beautiful 12th century ruined Benedictine abbey set, like the moulin, in the valley floor of the Sienne. There are often activities, generally with a medieval theme. You will need to check at the boutique for what is on offer from week to week. There are also lots of walks around the immediate area for the more adventurous. The Abbey was founded around 1145 by William Painel, Lord of Hambye, and Algare, bishop of Coutances. The monastery was established by Benedictine monks from Tiron (Perche region in south-east of Basse-Normandie). Fuelled by an ideal of rigor and austerity close to that of Cistercians, Benedictine monks built a sober and elegant abbey, typical of the early Gothic period. The construction took place in the late 12th and early 13th centuries. The religious community reached its apogee in the 13th century and then, after a long decline over the following centuries, disappeared in the 1780s. Like all French abbeys, it became national property at the beginning of the Revolution. Eventually, the abbey was sold in 1790. The new owners transformed or destroyed buildings and scattered the furnishings. Having belonged to the abbey for three centuries (16th-18th centuries), the altarpiece was also sold. The convent buildings became farm buildings. The abbey church was used as a quarry from 1810 and was gradually dismantled. ”
