Plaque circuit des escaliers le havre.JPG

Le Havre is naturally separated into two areas by a cliff of 90 m.

The ville basse, or lower city, comprises the port, the city center, and the peripheral regions.

The ville haute, or upper city, is composed of rich street Félix Faure, quiet Sanvic and "sensitive urban areas" (Mont-Gaillard, Caucriauville, and Mare-Rouge). Stairs were built in XIXème, when people begin to live on cliff.
