Between 1956 and 2015 Normandy was divided into two administrative regions: Lower Normandy and Upper Normandy; the regions were merged into one single region on 1 January 2016. Upper Normandy (Haute-Normandie) consisted of the French departments of Seine-Maritime and Eure, and Lower Normandy (Basse-Normandie) of the departments of Orne, Calvados, and Manche.
The main cities are Rouen, the capital since 2016 of the province and formerly of Upper Normandy; Caen, formerly the capital of Lower Normandy; Le Havre and Cherbourg.
The Pont de Normandie is a cable-stayed road bridge that spans the river Seine linking Le Havre, Haut Normandie (Upper Normandy), to Honfleur, Base Normandie(Lower Normandy).
