Tracy-sur-Mer is a commune in the Calvados department in the Basse-Normandie region in northwestern France.


The village was part of the west flank of the British 50th (Northumbrian) Infantry Division during the first days of the D-day invasion, in close proximity to the port of Arromanches-les-Bains, also known as Gold Beach.


Tracy-sur-Mer has a well-preserved Gothic church dedicated to Saint Martin dating from the thirteenth century.[1]
