ⓘ Vire (river)

The Vire is a river in Normandy, France whose 128 km course crosses the departements of Calvados and Manche, flowing through the towns of Vire, Saint-Lo and Isigny-sur-Mer, finally flowing out into the English Channel. Its main tributaries are the Aure, the Elle and the Souleuvre.

The outflow of the Vire has been canalized and forms the port of Isigny-sur-Mer.

The poets of the Vire valley Vau de Vire are said to have given rise to vaudeville.
