Quincy-Landzécourt, un pont historique
Entre terre et eau ! C’est ainsi que l’on pourrait qualifier ce charmant village traversé par le Loison. Ses riches eaux offrent un habitat naturel à une multitude d’espèces animales et végétales protégées et sont encore sources de légende, comme l’eau de la fontaine Saint- Maurice censée guérir les maladies des yeux. La richesse de sa terre et de ses hommes est à l’origine d’un coquet patrimoine bâti : linteaux de portes sculptés en majorité du XIXe, cadran solaire et tour de l’église Saint-Martin flanquée de trois cadrans d’horloge de 1910.
Autrefois divisé en deux entités administratives distinctes, le village est relié à partir de 1950 par une travée de pont du port d’Arromanches remplaçant son pont détruit en 1940. Ce tronçon s’en est allé aujourd’hui rejoindre sa Normandie d’origine.

Twixt land and water! This is how you could describe this charming village, crossed by the river Loison. Its rich waters offer a natural sanctuary to a number of protected flora and fauna, and they are still the stuff of legends, for example, the waters of the Saint Maurice fountain are said to heal eye diseases. The fusion of the land and the people has created some unique architecture, such as: door lintels, carved mainly in the 19th century, a sundial and the 1910 Saint Martin church tower, flanked by clock faces on three sides.
This village was formerly divided into two separate administrative districts, then reunited in 1950 by a bridge span from Arromanches which replaced the bridge that was destroyed in 1940. This section of bridge has today returned to its home in Normandy.
