Label Town of Art and History since 1985

Dieppe, on the Alabaster Coast, in Pays de Caux, is a place that was appreciated by the Vikings because of its location by the Arques River and its deep arbour called "djeep".

During the 19th century with the booming of the Anglo-Norman royalty, the arbour starts developing. During the Hundred Years War, fortification walls are built under the domination of the fortified castle.

The town apogee is during the Renaissance. The arbour becomes the place of departure of many expeditions, bringing back many exotic products from new found lands.
