  • Said Castle of William the conqueror. Worth a look at the city and the surroundings and the walk on the ramparts. For the rest an organization movies, 3D shelves... is made available for the visit which would last no more than an hour without cel the first traces of fortifications date back to the X.abandonne to the XIII is classified ISMH in 1840, beginning with restoration work. From 87 to 97 a dismal, disgraceful restoration in reinforced concrete varnish disfigures. Lately a very beautiful restoration of the ramparts can admire from the outside.

  • Came to visit family with children who had taken the tablets. Very fun, but it's true that we forget to raise the nose and see the parts that are really very nice. Attention, problem eguillage: we missed the pantry!

  • Beautiful castle which has been well restored combining modernity and respect for the old. The use of tablets is essential otherwise the castle would be too empty and would visit soon. However it's very cold and a lot of air flow. Well cover. We recommend.
