Castle Landmark
The tenth-century builders of Château de La Roche-Guyon dug the castle into a limestone cliff that overlooks the Seine. It was impossible to see the castle from the river, yet the castle had a wide view of the valley--making it an ideal defensive structure for medieval warfare. The manor house that stands today was built in the 12th century and continued to serve this purpose right up through World War II, when German Field Marshall Rommel made the castle his headquarters. Today, it serves as a museum with guided tours. Use our La Roche-Guyon travel itinerary planner to add Château de La Roche-Guyon and other attractions to your La Roche-Guyon vacation plans.

  • We loved the tour of this castle really very interesting. In addition, if you are athletic, climb the Tower (not), but the view is amazing, once at the top. A lot of stairs, the climb is steep but what a show. In addition, you have a view of the gardens, which is very nice also. NA not miss this visit the castle is superb.

  • beautiful monuments with 2 different styles: to see it must be fit to ride the donjeon because markets in chalk are uneven and is steep but really worth the effort

  • Interesting tour, the course is well organised, and sporty when you have to climb to the medieval castle, but these efforts worthwhile, the view from the top of the Dungeon is breathtaking. And don't forget the vegetable Orchard!

  • Stumbled across this gem on the way back from Giverny. Was on the fence about paying the entrance fee, glad I did. This place rules. Great views at the top and an all around adventure. Could easily spend a day in the area.
  • Excellent place to see. This visit had a very interesting exhibition of chairs from recent times back several hundred years. Cool seeing them in the expansive space of the chateau . The climb to the top of the top of the tower is a good workout! Well worth the time spent!!
  • Very nice castle to visit
  • Cool
  • The castle is beautiful and very rich in discovery. You have very friendly staff. Congratulations to the present Lady at the gate! Have a smile under the blazing sun of this Saturday. Very good, thank you.
