Chateau-Musee, Dieppe

3.8
Chateau-Musee survived the 1694 bombardment and is now a museum and exhibition space with a strong maritime collection. From here, you can get a panoramic view over the town and the coast. The castle is composed of a quadrangular enclosure with round flanking towers and a lower court adjacent. Its interior courtyard is picturesque. Inside, admire a rich collection of 17th- and 18th-century ivory carvings, including the lacy folding fans for which Dieppe was known. The castle was founded in 1188 and destroyed in 1195. Restored in the 14th century, the castle was later in large part reconstructed by Charles des Marets. Make Chateau-Musee a part of your Dieppe vacation plans using our Dieppe holiday website .

  • Beautiful fortified castle located on the heights of Dieppe. Very nice view on the city and beautiful walk along the ramparts. To do! My great regret, we not have time to visit the Museum.

  • The old castle on the top of white sea cliffs in Dieppe is a place that must be visited, I think. Sights of sea and town in sunny day are incredible. If you want to take a nice photo of Dieppe - here it's a place to be. And also I liked old cannons in the yard of the castle.
  • Nice castle with rich french heritage , fantastic view for the sea from above , i highly recommend it
  • Great castle with lots of information on the history of the city. A nice place to visit and walk around. Great view of the city and beach form the top. Be sure to check the panoramic view on the lawn!
  • Lovely old château housing an art collection with a Dieppe theme - a mixture of modern and traditional art with some model ships, carvings and ceramics too. Well worth a visit, especially to while away a rainy afternoon.
  • Yes it is the best place to visit and like something beautiful and lovely to
